A kid at the age of 2 years old, does not develop the ability to Read Lines or Words from Books. At the age of 2, they are capable of recognizing the Alphabetic (A-Z) & Numbers (1-10), Shapes, and Colors.
For your child, it will not be easy to recognize, read or understand the Big Words like Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday. Yes, but they can sing or repeat the Days of the week with you. By the age of 3 or 4 years, they will start to understand and learn the 7 days of the week from the Calendar or Visuals.
