We’ve had such an awesome few weeks learning about life at the pond with Mother Goose Time. April is all about birds + eggs and we’re just about ready to get started with it. In the meantime though, I thought it’d be fun to share one of our favorite activities from this month. This Pond invitation to create process art experience is too cool.
The little guy and I are still working our way through At the Pond w/ Mother Goose Time and we’re lovin’ it. This is one of the best themes yet. I think I say that every month, though. Lol… Today, we did the Snake invitation to create, which was a process art experience that focused on both fine motor (5.1) and visual arts (32.2) skills.
Each month, we get Experience God with our Mother Goose Time preschool curriculum kit and we definitely love it. Today, it’s all about Jesus being a rock and creating a unique piece of art that’s an illustration of our faith. This project was actually included last month, but unfortunately we didn’t get to it. I had it all set up and ready to go, but…
I can’t even begin to wrap my head around the fact that February is over. Talk about crazy! And we definitely loved this month’s Nursery Rhymes theme from Mother Goose Time. No surprise, right? Lol… One of our favorite activities was the wire sculpture invitation to create process art experience.
We’re finally starting to get into a routine around here. If you missed it, I published a few posts all about it last month including Creating A Daily Routine for Preschool Homeschool and What Our Weeks Look Like. If you haven’t already, make sure you take a few minutes and check them out!
The most awesome thing about Mother Goose Time, by far, is the fact that everything is more or less ready to go. Yay for little to no planning or prep! I mean, sure, there are occasionally things to laminate and we get a gathering list, but most of that is just stuff we have around the house.
The little guy and I had an awesome first week of Baby Animals w/ Mother Goose Time. And of course one of our favorite activities was the Seahorse Invitation to Create. I’m sure that doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone who’s been following along with us for a while. We definitely love process art around here.
Sometimes I share an overview of our entire day and other times I stick with one specific activity or project. Today it’s looking like the Hedgehog invitation to create is where it’s at. The little guy seriously loved it. We started with some craft supplies and an inspiration photo of a hedgehog and went from there.
One of our favorite activities this week was the Robot Tinkering invitation to create. The new process art experiences from Mother Goose Time always exceed my expectations and this one was definitely no exception. The skills listed for this activity were Shapes (16.2) and Logic (20.1).
Not too long ago, I accepted a full-time work-at-home position and I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am about it. I had prayed so hard and for so long about homeschooling. I may or may not have already mentioned how much of a blessing Mother Goose Time has been for us and of course I definitely feel like my prayers were answered and then some. I can’t even believe it.
