Days of the week

A couple of my boys getting into learning their days of the week; if they get stuck in future, they might be able to remind themselves with some chanting/clapping. Weirdly, a lot of students find the clapping part the difficult bit. Why is that? And how come girls learn some amazing clap-chants? It' a genuine mystery to me! Key to this for me is that students keep the beat/don't lengthen syllables; sadly the American CD drops the hard /t/ sound in Saturday (so they get Tuesday & Thursday sounding too much alike) Anyway, well done Yu-kun & "B"Atsuya
