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 JUNE
A to Zoo
This month is a zoo journey featuring animals of the alphabet. Your child will enjoy pretending to be a zookeeper as he designs habitats and cares for animals. He will make a snapping alligator head and search for food to feed it. He will grunt and gesture like the great gorilla and use letter shapes to make animals. He will make his own set of giant moose antlers and explore fluffy sheep and llama wool. The fun of this zoo adventure doesn’t end when he reaches the letter Z; the knowledge will last a lifetime!
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.
