The start of a new school year is always an exciting time, whether you are homeschooling or sending your kids to a traditional school setting. Although we are still a few weeks away from the official start of school, my kids are already bubbling over with excitement. When our Mother Goose Time box arrived this afternoon, they all went crazy. Everyone was so excited to see what was inside, including me. The theme for September is My Amazing Body, and it looks like it is going to be so much fun. Here is a look at what was included in our box. There are a ton of new features for the 2017/2018 school year, which I will do my best to highlight for you.
This packet is included in all September boxes for returning customers and is included in your first box if you are new to Mother Goose Time. It contains everything you need to set up a Circle Time Board in your classroom/homeschool area.
Here is an example of one way to set up your Circle Time board
Teacher Tool Bag
This Teacher newsletter was included this year and features the monthly activity calendar on the inside, and some interesting insights into teaching as well.
This year the teacher guides are in full color and there is a different guide for each week.
Each monthly box includes a different celebration kit, corresponding with the month’s featured holiday. This month’s celebration is a back to school themed party, which would work well in both a preschool or home setting.
At the beginning of each week, a set of Daily Notes is included to send home to parents or to include with your child’s artwork. These would be great to use in a scrapbook with your child’s work as a reminder of what they were learning about when they created their masterpiece.
I am missing day 13, I received two of day 14 by mistake. One quick call to customer service resolved this quickly, and I will post a picture of Day 13 as soon as I receive it in the mail.
This year Mother Goose Time has included high-quality magnetic storytelling pieces that correspond with the included story book. I have a feeling these are going to be well played with in our house. (They are inside Day 19’s bag)
This box was jam packed with fun and I can’t wait to get started with my little guy. We are really looking forward to the whole year ahead. This calendar was also included in our box, highlighting all of the wonderful monthly themes for the year.
It will be so fun to watch my 2-year-old learn and grow with this fantastic program. Become a follower of my blog so you won’t miss any of the fun, and join me soon for more Chaos On the Creek.
