Homeschoolers are notorious for neglecting health and fitness. I am thrilled that Mother Goose Time introduces this concept to my little ones early. Using games and creative expression the kids learn through play about the many health benefits of good food and exercise. We hope you enjoy this sneak peek of this month’s theme, Health and Fitness!
The kids and I are looking forward to all the 2018-2019 themes!
Week 1: Food Groups
Week 2: In the Kitchen
Week 3: Fitness
Week 4: Health
Health and Fitness 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
“Health and Fitness” 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
- A, G, & Q
- 11 & 12
The month’s musical selections are disco-inspired children’s music.
We’ll be listening and dancing to “Dairy Disco Dance” and “Fruit Salad.”
We’ll be moving and grooving to Dancing with Health and Fitness!
This month also includes a celebration kit for Valentine’s Day.
We’ll be playing the “Healthy Heart Game” and creating a “Love Bug Headband.”
There are also some fabulous ideas for holiday snacks and exploration stations!
We will also be learning about “Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand” with “God Cares About My Health,” 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 enjoy “Health and Fitness”
