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 OCTOBER
Down on the Farm
This month your child will learn all about life Down on the Farm! Your child will get to know chickens, pigs, sheep, horses and more. He will have fun practicing the sounds they make and learning about the food they eat. Your child will explore the different jobs that farmers do, like planting and harvesting crops, feeding and rounding up the animals, and driving a tractor to plow the fields. He will even plant his own seeds and watch them grow! Discuss your child’s creative process when he brings home an array of barnyard art projects. It is an action-packed month of animals, farming, food and fun that your child is sure to remember!
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.
