Instructor: Ashley Garcias-Casas
In this lesson we will learn the days of the week in Spanish. In addition to vocabulary, you will learn the order of the days. Take note that in Spanish the week starts with Monday rather than Sunday.

What Are the Days of the Week in Spanish?

What a special treat. Today we're going to peek inside Ms. Silva's kindergarten class as they learn the days of the week.

-Buenos días clase!

-Buenos días señorita Silva!

-Ok, clase. 7 días de la semana. Cuál es el primer día de la semana? Marco? (Ok, class. 7 days of the week. What is the first day of the week? Marco?)


Lunes (LOO-nehs) means Monday.

-Bien! Lunes. Luego? (Good! Monday. Then?)


Martes (MAR-tehs) means Tuesday.

-Excelente! Lunes, martes… todos? (Excellent! Monday, Tuesday... is that all?)

-Miércoles, jueves, viernes, sábado y domingo.

Miércoles (mee-EHR-koh-lehs) means Wednesday. Jueves (hoo-EH-vehs) means Thursday. Viernes (vee-EHR-nehs) means Friday. Sábado (SAH-bah-doh) means Saturday. And domingo (doh-MEEN-goh) means Sunday.

Nursery Rhyme for Days of the Week

Muy bien! Now do we all remember our special song to sing the days of the week? Let's sing it together!

Lunes, martes, miércoles, jueves, viernes, sábado y domingo; lunes, martes, miércoles, jueves, viernes, sábado y domingo.
(Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday; Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.)

Muy bien clase!
