April 11-18 is the National Association for the Education of Young Children’s Week of the Young Child Celebration. While the COVID-19 pandemic has changed our lives in many ways, it hasn’t changed the need to celebrate and support young children and the adults who love, care for, and support them. Although we will miss celebrating with you, we hope these fun activities bring a smile to your face and a respite from social distancing.

Here are the themes for each day. Ideas are being posted daily on the Little Rams Facebook Page and shared by your child’s teacher too.  Follow this link for ideas: Week of the Young Child ideas

Music Monday

Music Monday is more than singing and dancing, it’s a way to encourage children to be active while developing their early literacy skills and having fun with friends and family!

Tasty Tuesday

Tasty Tuesday isn’t just about eating your favorite snacks together. It’s also about cooking together and connecting math with literacy skills and science while introducing ways to incorporate healthy habits into children’s lifestyles

Work Together Wednesday

When children build together they experience teamwork and develop their social and early literacy skills. Grab some materials and create!

Artsy Thursday

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

Parents and families are children’s first teachers. Plan a special fun day for you and your children.
