Family Friday April 20, 2018
Sharing family stories
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. Share pictures and stories about your family on NAEYC's Facebook page or post to Twitter using the hashtag #woyc18 as we celebrate the unique role families play in their children's learning and development.
With your generous support, Little Miss Mag will continue to open up a pathway to early learning, school readiness, and long-term academic success for children. We need your help to continue to provide scholarships to children from low-income families who are most at-risk for academic challenges. Currently, 60% of Little Miss Mag students are only able to benefit from our high-quality early learning environment because of scholarship funding provided by donors like you. Will you help us continue to serve children and families in need? Purchase your tickets now!
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! Create and share a photos of your children’s creations on NAEYC's Facebook page or Twitter using the #woyc18 hashtag.
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. Build and share pictures of children’s creations on NAEYC's Facebook page or Twitter using the #woyc18 hashtag.
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. Create your own healthy snacks and share the recipes and photos of your creations on NAEYC's Facebook page or post to Twitter using the hashtag #woyc18.
Sing, dance, celebrate, and learn
Through music, children develop math, language, and literacy skills - All while having fun and being active! Make up and record your own unique version of a song or write your own, and share it on NAEYC's Facebook page or post to Twitter using the hashtag #woyc18.
This ghoulish event, sponsored by our amazing Board of Directors, will take place on our playground. Children are welcome to come dressed in their favorite costumes, but parents beware!!! Our children play hard, so make sure they are not wearing something that isn't OK to get dirty. All families welcome!
