September is fast approaching and so is a whole new year of Mother Goose Time Themes!
First up is Friends and Feelings!
Our kids will ease into this new school year with fun activities that introduce them to important social concepts.
We will learn about making friends and practice showing that we care about others.
Thematic math, literacy, and art projects abound!
The kids and I are looking forward to all the 2018-2019 themes!
Week 1: Making Friends
Week 2: Feelings
Week 3: Caring
Week 4: Communication
Friends and Feelings 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.
