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.

A dancer is a performer who moves her body in artistic ways to various types of music. There are many types of dancers, e.g., ballet, salsa, modern.

Here’s what the little guy had to say, “I listened to my music while I was painting and used my paintbrushes to dance on the paper. I loved it!” My five year old’s perspective on this particular invitation to create activity. Lol…

Prompts

  • What do you see in the photo? 
  • What do you hear in the music? How does the music make you feel? 
  • What colors or lines do you imagine when listening to the music? 
  • How could you make your paintbrush dance? What designs did it create?

Observe

  • What was the child’s response to the music? 
  • Did he show that response in his artwork?

It was so much fun to watch as the little guy danced to the music with his paintbrush. And of course the results were nothing less than spectacular.

I still can’t get over how much my little kids love this preschool curriculum.  I mean, c’mon! The little guy is 5 1/2 years old. He’s doing mostly kindergarten work.

And even after that’s all said and done, he’s asking to do the STEAM activities from Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time)

We’ve added kindergarten Math and Language Arts this year as well as participating in a local homeschool co-op, but this preschool curriculum is all kinds of awesome and he’s definitely still getting a lot out of the activities that we’re doing. 

Of course baby girl is starting to play along too as I’m sure you’ve probably noticed. When did she become a toddler? Wow!
