so I'm in the process of learning Javascript so bare with me please
I am making a calendar from scratch as a project for school.
what I have been trying to do is to create a for loop that loops seven times. It will check through all 7 of my outer spans Id's to see if the innermost span contains the static number 1. this is what I had tried to do

Code:
for (var i=0; i<8; i++) {
var mySpans = $('mySpan'+i); 

if ($(this).find('mySpans.span').text() == '1') {
alert("found"); }
}

HTML
Code:
<span class="spanClass" id="mySpan1">
<div>
<span class="innerSpanClass"> </span>
</div>
</span>

<span class="spanClass" id="mySpan2">
<div>
<span class="innerSpanClass"> </span>
</div>
</span>

<span class="spanClass" id="mySpan3">
<div>
<span class="innerSpanClass"> </span>
</div>
</span>

<span class="spanClass" id="mySpan4">
<div>
<span class="innerSpanClass"> </span>
</div>
</span>

<span class="spanClass" id="mySpan5">
<div>
<span class="innerSpanClass"> </span>
</div>
</span>

<span class="spanClass" id="mySpan6">
<div>
<span class="innerSpanClass">1</span>
</div>
</span>

<span class="spanClass" id="mySpan7">
<div>
<span class="innerSpanClass">2</span>
</div>
</span>
any advice or comments would be greatly appreciated, this project has had me stressed for awhile.
