Fall is here!
This is one of my favorite seasons.
With apples, busy squirrels, and deciduous trees losing there leaves it’s almost impossible to not enjoy learning.
All of these wonderful topics are featured in Orchard Harvest, our newest theme from Mother Goose Time.
We are ready to enjoy tons of great activities to stir our creativity and sharpen our math and literacy skills.
The kids and I are looking forward to all the 2018-2019 themes!
Week 1: Tree Lifecycle
Week 2: Fruit Trees
Week 3: Animals in the Orchard
Week 4: Skins and Shells
Orchard Harvest 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
“Orchard Harvest” 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 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 we cover a new character trait, shape, color, letters, and numbers.
- Character Trait
- I, L, & E
- 3 & 4
The month’s musical selections are folk-inspired children’s music.
We’ll be listening and dancing to “Banana Boogie” and “Sneaking Raccoon.”
We’ll be moving and grooving to Dancing in the Orchard!
***The music CD is included with the monthly curriculum purchase.
Dance n’Beats is an optional dance and fitness program.
We will also be learning about “Fruit of the Spirit” with “God is Good,” 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 explore “Orchard Harvest!”
