Imagine Learning That's Fun: Week of the Young Child 2016

Every year, the National Association for Education of the Young Child (NAEYC) celebrates early learners, parents, and teachers through a week-long celebration called the Week of the Young Child. This year's celebration will be April 11–15, 2016, and all children throughout the country are invited to celebrate! In keeping with tradition, every day during WOYC has a special theme: Music Monday - encourages children to enjoy songs, dances, rhythms, and movement at home and at school. Taco Tuesday - inspires kids and family members to prepare and eat healthy foods and stay physically fit. This day is really about more than just tacos! Work Together Wednesday - gives children an opportunity to work together to build something fun--from any material, indoors or out. Artsy Thursday - allows kids to use their own creativity and imaginations as they create an art project. Family Friday - brings families together and invites kids to show and tell their family stories. Teachers, students, and parents can use their ingenuity to come up with projects and activities for all ages to enjoy. This is a great time to involve even the youngest children in your family or your class!
