A Look Into our day using Mother Goose Time Preschool Lesson Plans
Today I am going to give you a look into a day using Mother Goose Time Preschool curriculum. The Mother Goose Time curriculum provides everything you need each day from the preschool lesson plans to almost all of the materials needed to do every activity. You can read THIS post to see all of the wonderful things included in your introductory shipment as well as your regular monthly shipments when you sign up for Mother Goose Time Curriculum.
Each day is started with circle & Calendar time. Each month in the shipment you receive a themed calendar to go along with the monthly theme. The preschool lesson plans tell you exactly what to do each morning during calendar and circle time. You also receive calendar numbers for the student to add each day to the calendar. Gabe really looks forward to adding each day to our calendar.
Not only do we add the number to our calendar we sing the days of the week song, months of the year song, and count up to the number of the day pointing to each of the numbers on the calendar. After we have the English version of the days of the week and months of the year we will be working on learning the Spanish version. Our morning calendar time is a wonderful way to learn a large array of skills.
Not only do we do calendar time during our circle time, we also sing songs. Yes, on this particular day Gabe was wearing a Woody costume and a birthday hat while we were going school. I guess just one of the many joys of homeschooling 😉 !
During this circle time this day we used pictures of vegetables and played a game similar to musical chairs and when the music stopped whoever’s name I called had to name the vegetable they landed on.
As you can see on their faces they loved this part of our circle time, music is one of Gabe’s all time favorite things each day! Mother Goose Time sends CD each month to go along with songs learned through out the month. I often hear Gabe walking around the house singing the songs we have learned that day.
We played a garden game that the kids really enjoyed. When they would land on a vegetable they looked for all the other fruits and vegetables that were the same color from our basket of wooden food and name them.
Each month Mother Goose time offers a board game in whatever theme that they are working on for the month. Ethan loves playing games, so this is something he loves to join in every time we pull the game out during the month. Most months we will play the game a couple times a week through out the month.
Each month they include a counting activity, the garden counting activity was using bean seeds and the garden counting strip. This is such a great way to teach 1-1 correspondence and also helps improve fine motor skills. Using tweezers would give an add level of fun to this activity as well!
Another one of my boy’s favorite activities each months is reading our Mother Goose Time story and using the props to reenact the story on their own. You can tell by the looks on their faces just how much they enjoy it!
We will leave the story setting and props out for the kids for the month and the kids will randomly just play with it.
There are also lots of fun projects and arts/crafts for the kids as well Mother Goose Time has everything put into a bag so you have everything together for the projects. This is a blessing to a busy mama of many!! For this days activity they made bird planters and inside of them, planted grass seeds.
Gabe decided that his bird needed a blue beak.
The finished planter. It will look so cute once the grass starts to grow in it!
Linking up with THESE great linky parties. Stop over for some more great ideas from fellow bloggers/homeschoolers.
