Ideas for your children at home
CELEBRATE "WEEK OF THE YOUNG CHILD"
APRIL 10–16, 2021
Sing, dance, celebrate, and learn.
Through music, children develop math, language, and literacy skills - all while having fun and being active!
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!
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.
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. Use any materials—from crayons to paint, clay to crafts!
Sharing family stories/photos.
Engaging and celebrating families is at the heart of supporting our youngest learners. NAEYC applauds family members’ role as young children’s first and most important teachers.
I hope you and your children are staying healthy and well, both physically and emotionally. I would like to pass along a resource that was sent to me. It is a COVID-19 Social Emotional Resource for children ages 2 - 7 years old.
It is available in 2 formats:
- Printable Flip Booklet Flip_Book_Resource
- Video (you may direct download from the pull down menu to the right of the Sign-in tab) https://www.dropbox.com/s/dpoeghmx0px8ncm/Loving%20Our%20Way%20Through%20-%20GenMindful.mp4?dl=0)
I hope this will be helpful to you during this time.
Kaplan Early Learning Company sent me an email of some different resources that I thought I would share with you to do with your children to help keep them occupied while we are all at home. I hope you try some and enjoy it. Thinking of you, Dianna

To all our families!
Thank you for attending our Popsicle Drive-by & Goodbye Day. It was a great way to end the school year! We had so much fun and it was great seeing all of you again! The teachers and I appreciate all of you and we look forward to next year. Please stay healthy and be safe.
