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 SEPTEMBER
Friends & Feelings
This month your child will learn new ways to make friends, talk to friends, be respectful of differences, and express his feelings. Watch for exciting art to come home throughout the week. Take time to ask why and how your child made the projects. Your child will also bring home games and books. Play and read together. The month is full of discovery, communication and friendship.
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.
