As you may know if you have been a follower for awhile, we have done many reviews on different homeschool curriculums in the past. Some of them we have grown to love and use year after year, others we have enjoyed but only use for the short time they serve their purpose for in our homeschool. MGT We have been using for almost a year now, and continue to use it through out the next year as well.
We started using Mother Goose Time Curriculum with Gabe last September, and as we were a couple months into the program we decided to let Ethan join us in the learning found inside of MGT. Last year we used MGT almost exclusively for Gabe with only a couple other subjects for him, and as a supplement for Ethan along with the other classes he did. This next year we will be using it as a supplement for both Gabe and Ethan. Both of the boys love the hands on learning and themes offered by MGT and is one of their favorite parts of our homeschool day.
You never know what kind of materials you will be getting with a new curriculum and most companies use average materials to go along with their programs. When we first started using Mother Goose Time Curriculum I quickly noticed that the quality of the materials was amazing, they were well beyond what you would expect from a company.
Each month in the shipments, students will get high quality manipulative’s that they will use on different aspects though out program for the month. One months manipulative were fabric leaves and very high quality tangram pieces that will be able to be used each month of the program. Another months manipulative’s are counting bears of different sizes, and high quality colored cubes.
The manipulative are such good quality they can be used month after month by the kids without having to worry about them falling apart. This is very much appreciated from a mom of many boys, who can be rough with everything 😉 !
The keys from last month were one of Ethan’s most favorite manipulative’s, we used them in story problems as we do with our manipulative every month. Ethan will use our MGT manipulative’s for his Math-U-See problems often, which is a nice change from the normal Math-U-See cubes.
Fabric leaves were a great manipulative to use during the fall months.
We used links for counting, making into creations in play dough.
