Our new school year begins soon and Mother Goose Time is kicking it off with a unit about My Amazing Body!
The kids and I are really looking forward to all the monthly themes for 2017-2018!
Week 1: Body Parts
Week 2: Five Senses
Week 3: Clothing
Week 4: Staying Healthy
My Amazing Body 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
“My Amazing Body” is jam packed with wonderful projects including several invitations to create and make and play activities.
The kids are excited about creating self-portraits and completing a body study with Degas. We’ll also be playing games like “Body Part Lotto” and “My Senses Game.” Other activities include making a “Bowl Band” while learning about our senses and “Stuffing a Pillow” while learning about the importance of sleep.
A quick pictorial overview of the daily projects and art included in the first week is shown below. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook to see the finished projects 🙂
Calendar and Daily Activities
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 comes with thematic manipulatives. This month, tanagrams and giant threading buttons are included.
These manipulatives are used in several of the Mother Goose Time activities and we are most looking forward to using them with our “Shape Design Mats” and to create “Button Patterns”.
The month’s musical selections are pop-inspired children’s music.
We’ll be listening and dancing to “See the Sunshine” and “Too Hot To Touch.”
We’ll be moving and grooving to Dancing from Head to Toe!
***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 an Open House to celebrate Back to School.
We’ll be playing the “Caterpillar Colors Game” and creating some “Butterfly Snack and Crafts.”
There are also some fabulous ideas for exploration stations!
We will also be learning about “The Miracle of Jesus” with “God Cares about my Body,” 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 on our adventures as we learn more about “My Amazing Body!”
