Mother Goose Time with Drizzle Fizzle

Mother Goose Time with Drizzle Fizzle

I found out about Mother Goose from my sons Day-school and fell instantly in love with it. I am not a huge planner so I adore box curriculum were everything you need is in one place. No fuss, no muss is my motto. So to keep track of my sons progress I started listing each curriculum theme and what was covered so at the end of the year I can go back and evaluate him and see what I might want to spend some more time going back over with him again. He did do March, Growing Gardens, as well, but it was through his day-school.

Ocean Commotion
Dive into the ocean and swim with the jellyfish.  Imagine what it will be like to blow fish bubbles and decorate a coral reef.  Wiggle your arms like an octopus, but watch out for the shark puppet!  Paint a whale and share a story with the giant tortoise.

Seasons of Change
What makes leaves fall? Where does the wind come from? Why does it rain? Grab your coat and investigate the reasons for the changing seasons. Make your own thunder shaker and play catch with a hailstone. This theme will encourage you to sort colorful leaves and curl up and rest with a hibernating bear.
