How to Make a Rotating Chart to Learn the Days of the Week

Here is a great project to learn the days of the week in any language. It is fast, easy, and effective. Here we are learning them in Serbian.

Days of the Week Rotating Chart
Days of the Week Rotating Chart

Materials:
2 paper plates
scissors
ruler
crayon, markers, or colored pencils
fastener
pencil
blank sharpie
Vocabulary List : Serbian months season day.

Instructions:

1. Take one paper plate and cut the inside circle out.

2. Measure the diameter. In the middle, at the 2.5″, mark an “x”. Around the outer edge measure 7 dots spaced out 2 & 3/16″. Using your ruler draw a line from the center to each mark made at the outer rim. This will give you 7 triangles.

3. Take the black sharpie and trace the lines you just made, and write in the day of the week in the triangles. I chose to do it in cyrillic, however you can do it in latin. Both are provided on the Vocabulary sheet.

4. With the other paper plate (working on the ridge part) mark 2.5″, 4 times along the inner circle. Mark the outer circle with 4 dots that are spaced about 3.5″ apart. As you did with the first paper plate, go to the flat center part of the plate and make the very center with an “x” at about 4 and 9/16 from ridged rim to ridged rim.

5. With ruler and sharpie, connect the inner dot to the outer dot. This will create 3 blocks to write in yesterday, today, and tomorrow. In the other open space write days of the week.  Use the sharpie to trace the center circle, and the outer edge circle.

6. Color the chart to your liking.

7. Poke a whole through both “x”s marking the center. Insert the fastener through the smaller circle then through the larger one and secure on the back. It will now rotate.

(Optional) 8. You can attach magnets to the back to use on the refrigerator, filing cabinet, or any other metal surface.

8. Learn the days of the week.

Serbian Months & Seasons Project

I saw this project on Pinterest, in English, to teach children months and seasons. I adapted it for the Serbian language. It really is pretty cool. We put it on our refrigerator and my kids are always look at it. It is quite simple to make. My 4 year old and I did this together.


Months & Seasons Project

Materials:
1 paper plate
crayons
black marker
construction paper (we used: white, yellow, red, green, brown, orange, pink)
cotton ball
2 magnets
glue stick
hot glue gun
scissors
paper fastener that allows movement
ruler
whole puncher
This sheet for cyrillic and latin words Serbian months season day

Instructions:

1. Prep your trees for each season. Fall / Jesen: cut a brown trunk, orange tree top, and falling leaves in red, yellow, orange. I just cut small almond shapes. Winter / Zima: Cut a brown trunk with branches. With whole puncher, punch a few white wholes for the snow. Spring / Prolece: cut a brown truck and green tree top. Using which ever colors you prefer cut small flowers. Use the whole puncher to punch out circles for the center. Summer / Leto: Cut a brown trunk and green tree top. Punch out red circles for apples.  (Note: you don’t have to use the construction paper. You can draw and color the trees on also).

2. Using which ever color construction paper you want, cut an arrow about 2″ long. On the arrow, use your marker to write godisna doba.

3. Divide the center of your paper plate into 4 quarters. Use the ruler for measurement and straight lines. Close in the center circle with your marker. On the outer plate with the ridges you will add the months. Divide those into 12 equal sections. See above photo for placement of lines, as some months fall into two seasons. Write in the months. Color as desired.

4. Use the glue stick to attach the trees to the corresponding season. Pull off a small portion of the cotton ball. Stretch out and fluff. Glue onto the winter / zima season for snow. See photo above for placement of trees. Write in the season.

5. Cut a semi-circle, in which ever color construction paper you choose, and write Mesec on it. Apply glue to the bottom front half of the paper and attach it to the back of the plate with the word in view.

6. Cut a small whole in the very center of the plate, where the 4 seasons lines come together. Put your godisna doba arrow over it and push the paper fastener through it.

7. Optional: (Magnets) Hot glue the magnets to the back, if you want to put it on your refrigerator like we did.

Alphabet Cards

 How to make my super awesome alphabet cards.

AzbukaAbeceda

 Create these alphabet cards to help you learn the Serbian Azbuka and Abeceda. When I created my cards I used a rainbow pattern to give me clues to the order of the alphabet. The rainbow pattern will only work for one type of alphabet order, either the Azbuka (cyrillic), or the Abeceda (Latin). It depends on what is your focus. Also, it is not necessary. If you want to simplify the project you can just use one color for all of the cards, or, to even save you a few steps, index cards. You’ll need 30, as there are 30 letters in the Serbian alphabet.
