We’ve been at home full-time for a few weeks now and we’re right where we should be for the month with Mother Goose Time. Yay! It’s all kinds of awesome to finally be doing things in real time. It used to be that we’d do lots of stuff on the weekends and hardly anything during the week.
There are quite a few things that we can always look forward to from Mother Goose Time. Each month, we get a couple of letter cookie cutters, 2 sets of manipulatives, and a storybook. We also get letter cards for the letter that we’re focusing on for the month. Today, I thought I’d share a few ideas for using some of this stuff.
We’ve been having so much fun with the invitation to create activities from Mother Goose Time. It used to be that we never skipped a tray play activity. These days, we’ve been making a point of doing each and every one of the invitation to create experiences. Yep, they’re that awesome!
If you’ve been following along with what we’ve been up to lately, then you probably already know that we’re at home full-time now. Oh, and the little guy is just about 2 1/2, so I also thought it might be time to switch things up again. Say what? Yep! Soon, the little guy will trade Little Goose for Experience God. Out with the old and in with the new, right?
Today marked a huge turning point for us. It was our very first day of working from home. And it was of course all kinds of awesome. Yep, that’s one of my favorite expressions. Have you noticed? Lol… Our topic for the day was cows and, as always, Mother Goose Time thought of everything and then some.
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.
We were so excited to get started with our Down on the Farm theme from Mother Goose Time. Yep! My little goose was definitely ready to go. And I totally love the expression on his face. Talk about priceless. One of the little guy’s favorite things is of course the two sets of manipulatives that come with each month’s curriculum kit. This month was no exception.
Not too long ago, I was reminiscing about how far the little guy has come and of course how quickly. It seems like just yesterday that we got our very first little yellow school bus box. We were both so excited to get started. I brought the box in, put it on the studio floor, and we opened it together.
Every once in a while, we stumble across an activity that quickly becomes a favorite and last month’s Inventing New Colors activity from Mother Goose Time was definitely one of them. I seriously can’t even count how many times the little guy and I have done this activity.
The little guy and I are seriously in love with the new invitation to create activities that are part of our Mother Goose Time preschool curriculum this year. I’m all about the process of creating. And he seems to be too. We have an insane amount of art supplies around here and he even has lots of his own stuff.
