As a Mother Goose Time blog ambassador, I receive the Mother Goose Time Preschool curriculum in exchange for my honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. As always, my opinions on awesome stuff for little kids are 100% my own. Keep in mind that all toddlers 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.
Each month, the Mother Goose Time blog ambassadors focus on a different topic and this month it’s all about routines. If you missed it last week, you can read about how we created a daily routine for preschool homeschool here, but this week I thought it’d be fun to give you an idea of what our weeks look like now that the little guy and I are home full-time.
A lot of people think that just because I’m a work-at-home mama, we spend most of our time at home. Ha. That couldn’t be further from the truth. More often than not, we have lots to do. Sometimes, too much.
Monday is the day there’s not much going on. I’m really hoping to eventually get the little guy involved in a co-op, but that’s not a possibility for at least another year or so.
A friend of mine has a little guy about E’s age and they’ve gotten really close over the last few months, so we try to get together at least once a week and do Mother Goose Time with the boys.
We have lots to do on Wednesday and Thursday too. The little guy and I started going to Preschool Story Time at the library. And of course there’s Awana Club, which I think I’ve mentioned before. Oh, and we also go to gymnastics once or twice a week.
Friday is our day off, so that’s usually the day we run errands, go grocery shopping, etc. I’ve also made a point of taking the little guy to the bookstore as often as possible.
And yep, I realize that’s what libraries are for, but as far as I’m concerned there are two things that you can never have too many of. And those would of course be books and craft supplies. I’m sure that’s no surprise if you’ve been around for a while. Lol…
If you’re wondering exactly how we fit everything in, it’s definitely not easy. And in the interest of full disclosure, sometimes we don’t.
The awesome thing about preschool homeschool is that it’s all kinds of flexible. We add stuff, break things up, and even skip it altogether some days. I know, I know. He’s two, though. Lol…
Balance is more important than anything else. And besides, little kids learn so much just from playing. I very much let him decide what we do. The ironic part of it is that he asks to do Mother Goose Time just about every day. Who would’ve thought, right?
That’s what’s so awesome about this curriculum. Each month, we get a box delivered to us that has everything we could possibly want or need for preschool homeschool. It’s play-based, so the little guy loves it. And everything’s ready to go, which totally makes this mama happy too.
