February's theme with Mother Goose Time is nursery rhymes. Week one was devoted to rhymes about numbers. Mother Goose Time is a comprehensive, all in one boxed curriculum. It focuses on physical and emotional development, literacy, math, social studies, science, and creative development.
For literacy work this week Elli practiced writing her name on her name tag, worked on finding and identifying the letter I on the monthly rhyme time poster, worked on a few pages of her my little journal, and listened to Addie read the book of the month.
For math work Elli counted money to buy food, sorted shape beads, used our sorting pie to work on colors, used the sheep manipulatives to work on counting, played a counting game with Addie, played a clock game, sand sorted sheep by size and color.
For creative development Elli made pig finger puppets, a play dough pie, built with cornstarch noodles, painted her own door, made a Baa Baa Black Sheep story telling set, and she and Addie made mice headbands.
Elli also worked on following a recipe to make play dough. She used the look and find glasses to search for different things on the theme poster and then followed the prompts on the back of the glasses.
