Book length in pages: 32 pgs

Parents are you look for a book to inspire movement? Moving Through All Seven Day helps children learn about the days of the week while getting them up and moving. The lyrical rhymes also teach them how to spell each day! There are also 14 pages of activities at the end of the book designed to reinforce the concepts as well as give impetus to movement exploration.

But don't just take our word for it. Here's what a few others had to say . . .

"Moving Through All Seven Days is a wonderful way to teach young children the days of the week. The days move forward with playful activities, 'Slipping, sliding, spin and play, Fun on Sunday, that's the way.'

"As an added feature, Moving Through All Seven Days includes an activity and learning section with: in class activities, spelling the days of the week, rhyming words, coloring pages and more. This is sure to be a hit in any preschool or lower grade classroom.

"Moving Through All Seven Days is also a great way to teach the days of the week to your own little ones before they start school. I’ll be reading it to my 3-year-old grandson!" ~Karen Cioffi, Co-Author of Day’s End Lullaby


"This fun book is full of lively rhymes, clever illustrations, and engaging activities sure to be fun for all the kids in your class -- or out of it. I knew I was hooked when I found myself filling in the missing letters on the Complete Each Word activity." ~Margaret Fieland, Author/Educator


"Kathy Stemke’s Moving through All Seven Days offers a multifaceted approach to movement in the classroom that also offers a healthy dose of the language arts!" ~Rae Pica, Education Consultant

Early Childhood Physical Activity



"Move and groove along with the whimsical characters of Moving Through All Seven Days as they slip, twirl, and glide you through the days of the week. An activities resource to help reinforce the learning process of spelling the days of the week is a welcome bonus. It provides an ingenious way of getting the children up from behind their desks to experience learning through movement.

"Children’s author, Kathy Ann Stemke brilliantly blends lyrical rhyme and the learning process in a fun and educational twist. Along with the vibrant illustrations created by Tony Glisson, Moving Through All Seven Days is a must have for preschool and kindergarten classrooms and no home library would be complete without it." ~Reviewed by Donna M. McDine for the National Writing for Children Center. http://www.donnamcdine.com.

"Kathy, you have a winner. Each rhyme is short, easy to learn, and fun. I teach Pre-k for the local school district. Our "teaching time" is so limited in Pre-k for scheduling reasons. What caught my attention is that a teacher could quickly do a daily "story board" and the kids would GET it. At higher-grade levels this material could be easily used in center stations for independent work that students would be interested in doing.

WAY TO GO!" ~Versana Polidore, Thomas Gibbs Elementary School Classroom teacher
