One of the best things you can do for your preschooler is let them develop fine motors skills through art. They are having so fun much they don’t even realize how much finger strength and control they are gaining. When it comes time for them to write letters and numbers it will feel very much like an extension of their artwork, something they already know and like!
This month Mother Goose Time helps our little artists learn a little bit more about some of the most famous European artists of all time. There is a ton of time to practice our art skills. I can’t wait to hear which art endeavor your kids like best!
Here are all the upcoming themes for 2019-2020!
Week 1: Art in Italy
Week 2: Art in France
Week 3: Art in the Netherlands & Spain
Week 4: Art in England
Art Studio 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
“Art Studio” 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.
Books and STEAM
We also have a whole new list of suggested books and outdoor and STEAM inspired play ideas.
It’s summer! So, we review all our core concepts including character traits, shapes, color, letters, and numbers. As an added bonus in Art Studio we get to start learning about maps, geography, culture, and other languages!
The month’s musical selections are all art inspired.
We’ll be listening and dancing to “Picasso Polka” and “Modern Art Mambo.”
We’ll be moving and grooving to Dancing in the Art Studio!
We will also be learning about “The Creation Story” with “God Is an Artist” 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 in the “Art Studio”!
