WEEK OF THE YOUNG CHILD

The Week of the Young Child is five fun-filled themed days to celebrate our youngest learners.  “Children learn so much as they enjoy music, explore food and cooking, build together, create art and celebrate their families.”

Teachers will be encouraged to celebrate this week by following the themes listed below:

Music Monday! April 8, 2019.  Sing, dance, celebrate, and learn 

Through music, children develop math, language, and literacy skills - All while having fun and being active!

Tasty Tuesday April 9, 2019.  Healthy eating and fitness at home and school

This fun, food-themed day is about more than just cheese and crackers. Cooking together connects math with literacy skills, science, and more.  With the rise in childhood obesity, you can encourage healthy nutrition and fitness habits at home and in the classroom.

Work Together Wednesday April 10, 2019.  Work together, build together, learn together

When children build together they explore math and science concepts and develop their social and early literacy skills.  Children can use any building material—from a fort of branches on the playground to a block city in the classroom, or a hideaway made from couch pillows at home.

Artsy Thursday April 11, 2019.  Think, problem solve, create

Children develop creativity, social skills and fine motor skills with open-ended art projects where they can make choices, use their imaginations, and create with their hands.  On Artsy Thursday celebrate the joy and learning children experience when engaged in creative art making.

Family Friday April 12, 2019.  Sharing family stories

Engaging and celebrating families is at the heart of supporting our youngest learners.  We applaud family members’ role as young children’s first and most important teachers.
