This is my favorite month of Mother Goose Time! We get a chance to review all the letters, numbers, shapes, colors, and more that we’ve been introduced to throughout the year. A to Zoo is so much fun!
- The crafts reinforce letter recognition.
- The games link examples of phonetic sounds with letters.
- For example we look for the letter “q” in “quail eggs.”
“A to Zoo” was the first step my two oldest kids took towards learning how to read. I’m so excited to see this happen for my youngest and to watch my two oldest join in and continue to grow!
Here are all the upcoming themes for 2019-2020!
Week 1: Animals A-E
Week 2: Animals F-K
Week 3: Animals L-R
Week 4: Animals S-Z
A to Zoo comes with teacher resources that make planning and executing a fun learning experience achievable and organized.
There is a separate teacher guide for each week of the program. The guides include all the instructions you need for daily activities and projects with book recommendations, play suggestions, and helpful skill building tips. A learning objectives and overview page gives a weekly pictorial summary of all the projects.
Daily Child Projects
“A to Zoo” is jam packed with wonderful projects focused on community challenges, creative arts (invitations to create & make and play), small group math and literacy, and table top math and literacy.
A quick pictorial overview of the daily projects and art included in the first week is shown in the above image. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook to see the finished projects 🙂
Books and STEAM
We also have a whole new list of suggested books and outdoor and STEAM inspired play ideas.
We’ll be sure to share some of our favorites on Facebook and Instagram!
Each month we cover a new character trait, shape, color, letters, and numbers.
- Character Trait
- basic shapes review
- color review
- 19 & 20
The month’s musical selections are all about the alphabet.
We’ll be listening and dancing to “A is for Alligator” and “G is for Gorilla.”
We’ll be moving and grooving to Dancing from A to Zoo!
We will also be learning about “Noah and the Ark” with “God Asks Me to Listen” from Experience God (Christian curriculum add-on).
The toddler is always included thanks to the Little Goose Program (toddler supplement).
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 as we journey from “A to Zoo”!
