March is the perfect time to learn more about deserts with Mother Goose Time. From cowboys to coyotes and cacti to pyramids, there is so much to explore! While the kids are playing they will also be picking up some much needed skills that will ease them into developing strong literacy and mathematic abilities. Having fun and playing are the perfect way to start a learning journey!
The kids and I are looking forward to all the 2018-2019 themes!
Week 1: At the Rodeo
Week 2: Sahara Desert
Week 3: Mojave Desert
Week 4: Desert Night
Desert Discovery 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
“Desert Discovery” 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.
Each month we cover a new character trait, shape, color, letters, and numbers.
- Character Trait
- W, Z, & N
- 13 & 14
The month’s musical selections are western-inspired children’s music.
We’ll be listening and dancing to “Don’t Sit On a Cactus” and “Sahara, the Camel.”
We’ll be moving and grooving to Dancing in the Desert!
We will also be learning about “Moses in the Desert” with “God Asks Me to Live by the Commandments,” 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 venture into “Desert Discovery”!
