One of our favorite parts of our Mother Goose Time curriculum each month is the cd. Every month a full length cd is included with learning songs based around the monthly theme. These aren’t your standard kids songs either, they pull from a HUGE variety of genres to compose these one of a kind songs. Activities and dances are included within the curriculum through out the month to highlight these songs.
Then once the month is over, these cds go straight into our car. I love knowing that my kids can enjoying learning concepts while we drive and the songs are so catchy that I have many favorites on each album.
This month, like any other, X requested to listen to the new cd as soon as the box arrived. We frequently listen during meals, thus lunch time both kids were dancing as they ate. X particularly loved a song called Cow in My House and asked for that one to be repeated a few times. The silly plot of the song had him in giggles.
So later that night I was looking through the provided materials and was so excited to discover that this month’s included story book is based on the song!
To integrate the learning opportunities even further, this month’s included puzzle is ALSO based on the fun song!
I really love having so many different materials based around one topic. This gives X a chance to keep on thinking about what we’re learning while utilizing different skills. I’m so excited to see how awesome this is for reading comprehension. Listening to the story, hearing the song and using the puzzle will have him so immersed in this story! Music, literacy and math all surrounding this one silly cow! He’s going to love it.
Make sure to check back in through out the month as we go Down on the Farm with Mother Goose Time!
