This week was all about rearranging + reorganizing. The little guy and I had lots of fun shopping and putting together our preschool homeschool space. You know, because organizing is one of my favorite things to do. Always has been and probably always will be.

A huge thanks to Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) for providing us with their Experience Preschool curriculum for free in exchange for sharing our honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. It’s been such a huge blessing to us! As always, my opinions on awesome stuff for little kids are 100% my own.
Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids.
We bought school supplies for the new homeschool year. I mean, what’s not to love about brand-spankin’-new markers and crayons? Oh, and we ordered books for September’s My Amazing Body theme too.
One thing I’ve noticed that’s different this year is that we’ll be focusing on just a few books a week. I definitely can’t wait to get into this year’s curriculum. The little guy and I are both really excited about the changes.
I spent some time going through our stuff and pulling out all things related to the human body. Did I mention that I made the little guy more red water beads for his human organs? More about that later, though. Of course we have quite a stack of books to check out too.
I also stumbled across my anatomy flash cards from college A+P. I cannot believe these things still exist. Lol… I left them out to show the little guy because I thought he might enjoy looking at some of the pictures, but I’m obviously not planning on actually using them.
We also organized all of our manipulatives. We keep the current month’s manipulatives on our workbox cart and then the ones that we’re finished with get tossed into containers.
One of the things that I love about Mother Goose Time is how easy it is to use. It’s literally open and go, which means that I can just pull out a daily discovery bag, and get started. There’s like no prep. I mean, sure. You can take the time to pull everything out of the box and laminate it all if you want to, but it’s really not necessary.
I did end up pulling out the storybook, puzzle, and magnetic storytelling pieces. I know I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again. I’m seriously all kinds of in love with the stuff that we get every month.
We still need to figure out whether or not we’re setting up the circle time display. I so wish that we had wall space in the studio, but unfortunately we don’t. Maybe eventually we’ll have more space, but in the meantime, windows are kinda nice too.
And of course don’t forget to check back next week to see what we’re up to with our new My Amazing Body theme.
