Mother Goose Time provides monthly subscription, thematic early-learning materials that work great in a homeschool setting (at home or in a co-op). The materials encourage skill based learning through play, while nurturing a child’s social-emotional, physical, language and cognitive development. And the program is easy to implement, which is a plus.
What do you get in every monthly subscription? Included in every box:
Letters and Phonics Materials – Children learn 3 featured letters per month. Three sight words and a new word family game are included as well. By the end of the year, preschoolers have an understanding of the entire alphabet and an introduction to the dolch pre-primary sight words. That’s pretty cool.
Print and Reading Comprehension Materials – Each month you receive a new book and Storytelling Scene with Character Pieces. These resources encourage emergent reading skills. Add the books to your homeschool library – they’re a great addition!
Emergent Writing Materials – Children have many opportunities to develop eye-hand coordination and fine motor control with the My Little Journal, Postcard, painting projects and monthly games which are focused on building emergent writing skills.
Counting and Number Materials – A new set of numbers, plastic counters, self-check number cards and Math Story Cards arrive every month. The colorful manipulatives help children learn to count, sort and problem-solve.
There are many monthly, thematic options. I received the September curriculum – Me & My Family. It covers – My family, My feelings, My pets, and Friendly Traits. It focuses on the character trait of loving, the color green, circles, and the letters and numbers M, T, A, 1, 10 and 11. The Dance ‘n Beats CD is Dancing with My Family.
I was very impressed! Here are just some of the things I liked (there are so many, I’m afraid I’ll might leave a few out!) –
In addition to their pre-school program, Mother Goose Time also offers:
Little Goose lesson plan – This is a valuable option for homeschooling families with multiple little ones. Little Goose simplifies the Mother Goose Time activities so that children of all levels can learn and play together. It follows the same daily topics featured in the Mother Goose Time lesson plan book and uses many of the same materials.
Experience Baby – This infant/young toddler curriculum is designed for babies 3 to 18 months. It is a relationship-based model which provides experiences to support learning/development.
Dance ‘n Beats Lab – Dance ‘n Beats is a research-based movement program that helps children learn 21 movements to increase muscle control/encourage physical fitness.
