Lesson Plan Book
Activity suggestions are described in detail every day to help you successfully facilitate the camp program. If the activities seem too difficult for your children call our office about the infant/toddler supplement book. The Little Goose Lesson Book will explain how to adapt the activities for children ages 9-months to 2-years-old.

Daily Shapes & Easel Poster

Daily Shapes and Easel Poster
Each day bag has a set of shapes. Punch out the shapes at the beginning of each day. Each shape has one of the 6 activities printed on it that you will do during that day. During circle time (we list it in the lesson plan book as “How Our Day Is Shaping Up”), invite children to look at the 6 shapes, identify the shape of the day as listed in the lesson plan book and tape this featured shape to the easel. Then as you review the jobs for the day, tape the remaining 5 shapes on the Easel. Throughout the course of the day, as you finish a job, remove that shape until there are no more shapes on the Easel.

You will read or use this book in an activity two times throughout the month. However, we recommend you keep the book out for children to reference and look at during their free time.

 

Calendar

Calendar and Calendar Pattern Pieces
Start your day by placing today’s calendar piece on the calendar. Count the number of fun-filled days you’ve been working together.

Day Bags

Shapes

The name of each daily activity is printed on each shape. Each shape has a different icon which represents the type of activity you will do with the children.

Daily Shapes

Feather Activity: a simple game to reinforce five values that will nurture good decision-making. These values are Discipline, Integrity, Resourcefulness, Contentment and Generosity.

Game: The high energy game idea will get your children running, building, climbing and crawling through obstacles. These games are great to do outdoors but if raining, most can be played inside as well.

Art Project:Supplies are included to make the new art project every day. The art projects become the masterpieces you can display at the end of the month in your very own art museum. Consider hosting a family day at the end of the month. Children can make entry tickets and be tour guides for their family members. 

Story or Song: Gather together for imaginative stories or a silly song. Each week you will read from the included storybook, sing along to familiar tunes with new lyrics, and participate in fingerplays.

Around the World Activity: Learn about Europe and practice team work as you and the children cook tasty recipes, make flags and decorate scrapbooks.

Money: Learn about needs and wants, where money comes from, how to save and why to give. Discuss the importance of doing your best and how to realize when you have enough stuff. Children learn to save for a dream and spend their money wisely. After this hands-on money game or activity, review the activities of the day and pay each child $5 for their hard work. Children place their $5 in their spending, saving and giving envelopes.
