Week of the Young Child

All week long, beetbox will be proudly celebrating The Week of the Young Child. Read below to see how we suggest incorporating five, fun-filled themed days to spotlight early learning, young children, their teachers, families, and communities. 

Musical Monday

Music ignites all areas of child development and skills for school readiness, including intellectual, social-emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy. It helps the body and the mind work together! Beetbox makes sure to include songs and finger play in each one of our. Click here for a free finger puppet and song print out, with a bean theme!

Work Together Wednesday

Educators know that team work makes the dream work! Holding ourselves and others accountable is an important part of the equation for a successful learning environment. We all make mistakes, but do we learn from them? At beetbox, we recognize education is a community like no other. Most go into education to make a difference in the life of a child, despite the difficult, long days with sometimes little to no recognition. See how mistakes can be a good thing, and read how to turn them into learning opportunities for your entire school. Click here.

Artsy Thursday

It’s sometimes expected by educators and parents alike that children will bring home cute craft projects. While crafts are fun and enjoyable, the focus of a craft is usually a specific end result, which unfortunately leaves children with little flexibility to be as creative as they please. Try something new - head here to learn all about process art and its creative learning benefits!

Family Friday

Beetbox cares deeply about the relationship between parents, children, and educators. While healthful programming can be impactful, real change comes when the whole family is involved! We know it can be tough for busy parents to  stay on track. Our blog features healthy and easy recipes your child will love. Head here to find our delicious Baked Rainbow Potato Chips!
