Themes help preschoolers construct knowledge and build connections through real experiences. Instead of having a day of disjointed activities, themes organize new information around a unified context, which results in a growing web of knowledge.
Each theme creatively integrates colors, shapes, numbers and letters of the month.
Monthly themes invite children to explore new ideas with an interdisciplinary, multi-sensory approach. Mother Goose Time uses music, art, dramatic play, storytelling, games, books and experiments to ignite imagination and bring the theme to life in four weeks of wonder.
FEATURED THIS MAY
Bugs & Crawly Things
Bugs & crawly things creep, crawl and fly their way around the classroom this month! Your child will learn about common bugs, their homes and their unique behaviors. Be ready to fly like a ladybug, crawl like a spider, and buzz like a bee, as arts and crafts introduce the world of insects to your child. Bugs that may have seemed scary before will soon be friendly critters with colorful personalities!
SCOPE AND SEQUENCE
THEMES ARE ORGANIZED UNDER
THREE MAIN CATEGORIES:
1. Me and My Community
Each year, we feature 3-4 themes from each category so children can have a complete understanding of how they relate and connect to their expanding world. These diverse experiences help them deepen their sense of self, make healthy life choices, build compassion for others, become stewards of their environment, and think critically when faced with the unknown.
