This month Mother Goose Time is giving us a chance to play with Nursery Rhymes!
We’re looking forward to learning number rhymes, character rhymes, little rhymes, and food rhymes.
The kids and I are really looking forward to all the monthly themes for 2016-2017!
Nursery Rhymes comes with teacher resources that make planning and executing a fun learning experience achievable and organized.
- Teacher Guide – all the instructions you need for daily activities and projects with tons of book recommendations, play suggestions, and helpful skill building tips.
- Planning Guide – an easy to use week at a glance calendar with a monthly overview of all the projects.
- Gathering List – any unusual items are easy to review on a one page sheet.
- Little Goose – a toddler supplement (additional 18.00) helps adapt the daily activities for my toddler.
Daily Child Projects
“Nursery Rhymes” is jam packed with wonderful projects including several invitations to create and make and play activities.
We’ll be creating projects inspired by “This Little Piggy,” “There was an Old Woman,” and “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.” We’ll be playing with texture mystery boxes, block houses, and cupcake dough. We will also make a crown and create some shoe prints.
Calendar and Daily Activities
Going on a treasure hunt, baking bread, and rhyme rhythms are just a few of the fun activities we are looking forward to this month.
Each day we will learn a brand new nursery rhyme before enjoying related activities.
We also have a whole new list of suggested books and outdoor and STEAM inspired play ideas.
Each month comes with thematic manipulatives. This month, sheep counters and stringable shape beads are included.
These manipulatives are used in several of the Mother Goose Time activities and we are most looking forward to using them for playing the fill the cupboard game and 5,6 pickup sticks.
We will also be focusing on the following concepts:
- Color – red
- Shape – heart
- Friendship Trait – honest
- Pattern – AB
- Letters – I, R, & J
- Sight Words – and, look, at
- Numbers – 6 and 16
The month’s musical selections are jazz inspired.
We’ll be listening and dancing to “Itsy, Bitsy Spider” and “Hot Cross Buns.”
***The music CD is included with the monthly curriculum purchase. Dance n’Beats is an optional dance and fitness program.
This month also includes a celebration kit for Valentine’s Day.
We’ll be playing the “Healthy Heart Game” and creating a “Love Bug Headband.”
We will also be learning about “The Story of The Wise and the Foolish Builders” with “God Asks Me to Read the Bible,” from Experience God (Christian curriculum add-on) and dancing to the music from our “Dancing with Nursery Rhymes” program from Dance ‘n Beats (dance and fitness program).
The toddler is always included thanks to the Little Goose Program (toddler supplement).
New, this year we will also be adding “More Reading and Writing“and “More Math,” as part of Mother Goose Time’s prek and kindergarten enrichment program.
We hope you’ll join us on our adventures as we learn more about “Nursery Rhymes!”
