I would say “Good morning Class it’s time for us to find out what is today’s date and I will give a short lesson on days of the week (each of the numbered rows represent a week-lets practice ). We will began by having (I will pick one helper to point to the calendar) point to the day of the week as we sing our happy days song (have the class repeat after me first once I have recited the song for them.)
