April 9th Activity Bundle


by Katlyn

As a teacher, I have noticed that young children tend to stare at face-like images longer than at any other pattern. This is especially true when young children or infants are starting to become interested in books.  In the baby room, our children enjoy looking at these books repeatedly. Babies love looking at other babies and seeing faces change based on emotions such as smiling, frowning, laughing, being silly or serious. These faces are all sure to captivate and delight babies and toddlers. An added bonus is that when children see these faces in books it encourages social-emotional & language development and fluency reading people’s expressions in infants and toddlers! 


This recipe was shared from a mother of a child in the infant room. Shout out for sharing this delicious recipe with the rest of us! Thank you!

Elizabeth Knuckols is a close friend of the BCS community. She has spent time with us doing fun activities with each class at school and also spends time with us when we visit The ECHO Center, so she will be a familiar face to many of your children! And we know a lot of you are probably missing ECHO a lot so it might be nice to hear from them.

This video includes Elizabeth singing a hello song and reading a book called, North Country Spring. which is about all the signs of spring you might be seeing outside in Vermont right now!

This is a great story to listen to together before you go on a walk, then you can look for signs of spring in your own neighborhood!

  1. Is the snow melting?

  2. Can you see any flowers?

  3. Are there any new animals that you can see?

  4. Can you hear any birds singing?

  5. Does the air feel warm or cold?

You can also take Elizabeth’s suggestion for drawing a springtime drawing or painting inside. Elizabeth chose bright colors to paint some flowers.

Elizabeth also offers you the suggestion to find materials in your house that might be helpful to all the birds trying to make their nests in the spring! Wouldn’t it be great to help a bird make their nest?!

Enjoy these activities, friends. We will see you here tomorrow!
