1st grade can say the days of the week in Spanish

In Spanish, the five weekdays all retained their planetary names. Those are the five days whose names end in -es, a shortening of the Latin word for “day,” dies. Lunes comes from the word for “moon,” luna in Spanish, and the planetary connection with Mars is also apparent with martes. The same is true with Mercury/miĆ©rcoles, and Venus is viernes, meaning “Friday.” The connection with Jupiter is not quite so apparent with jueves unless you know Roman mythology and recall that “Jove” is another name for Jupiter in Latin.
