Music Monday - Sing, Dance, Celebrate and Learn

Monday, April 4, 2022

Music Monday - Sing, Dance, Celebrate and Learn

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!

Step It Up Activity
Make sure your state and local elected officials are all singing from the same songbook! Join the chorus for change and work with your states’ Affiliates to help policymakers sign proclamations that honor and advance the early childhood education profession as part of the WOYC®. Get inspired by what NAEYC’s affiliate leaders and partners did in 2020 to move beyond "thanks and recognition." Also, don't forget to access the new 2021 Proclamation Toolkit, an easy-to-use resource that will help you secure a proclamation to educate the public, bring attention to our issues, and provide an effective advocacy tool for the future!

Tasty Tuesday - Healthy Eating and Fitness

Tuesday, April 5, 2022

Tasty Tuesday - Healthy Eating and Fitness
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. Use the tips, resources, and recipes below to get started.

Step It Up Activity
Explore the culture specific foods that the young children in your classroom may enjoy at home. Connect with families by engaging them in the history and tradition of meals from their countries of origin. Consider having families share a story or recipe about their favorite dish and the history behind it. Introduce your class to new ingredients and discuss where they are grown. Create a recipe book using images the children draw and share the book with the community. The creative opportunities are as endless as the meals themselves.

Work Together Wednesday - Work, Build and Learn Together

Wednesday, April 6, 2022

Work Together Wednesday - Work, Build and Learn Together
When children build together they experience teamwork and develop their social and early literacy skills. Grab some materials and create!

Step It Up Activity
The young children in your classroom aren’t the only ones who succeed when they work together. Take a moment to join NAEYC in advancing our profession by signing up for Power to the Profession; supporting your peers through the discussions on HELLO; reaching out to elected officials about the importance of investing in ECE; or inviting someone new to become a member. Working together makes us stronger together, and that means the impact we make can be monumental!

Artsy Thursday - Think, Problem Solve, Create

Thursday, April 7, 2022

Artsy Thursday - Think, Problem Solve, Create
Children develop creativity, social skills, and fine muscles with open-ended art projects that let them make choices, use their imaginations, and create with their hands.

Step It Up Activity
Find ways to display your classroom’s art projects for the community to see, and while you have their attention, educate them about the importance of high-quality early childhood education. Here are some suggestions to get started:

• Set up a gallery at a local business or public library to share your classroom art creations. Check out how one center set up an exhibition last year in their student center.
• Include information about high-quality care as part of your art displays in community. Need brochures? Visit our online store: NAEYC.org/shop.
• Create a digital gallery on social media or on your program’s website. Share using the hashtag #woyc21.
• Create a print book to share with the community. Tip: Sell the book for fundraising your trip to an NAEYC conference!

Family Friday - Share Family Stories

Friday, April 8, 2022

Family Friday - Share Family Stories
Parents and families are children’s first teachers. Family Friday focuses on engaging families to support our youngest learners.

Step It Up Activity
Extend your NAEYC family! The early childhood education community doesn’t end outside the doors of your classroom. Connect with your local affiliate, encourage families to join our Family level membership, learn how to engage with your local policymakers, and more! There are endless opportunities to keep your entire community in-the-know about early childhood education. See how the The Akron Art Museum and the NAEYC's MaineAEYC engaged their communities.
