Work Week Rhyme



Wash on Monday,
Iron on Tuesday,
Mend on Wednesday,
Churn on Thursday,
Clean on Friday,
Bake on Saturday,
Rest on Sunday.

Parents and teachers – here is an opportunity for you to talk about the work mentioned in this rhyme. Many people don’t iron any more, and I certainly don’t know anyone who churns butter!

Our snack would then be bread with freshly made butter. Yum! Click here for instructions and a song to help butter-making go smoothly with a group of children:
