I walked into a store the other day and and was quickly reminded that July turned into August and August turned into Back2School sales! I love Back2School season. Like “New Years” it is a time to start anew and transition to the next stage. As a mommy it’s a bitter-sweet time watching your kids transition to the next stage/age/grade levels. As a teacher it’s hard saying goodbye to students who transition out of programs, but it’s also exciting meeting new students and planning new learning adventures. Mi Families (“my families”) LLC is planning some fun adventures for families and friends this fall.
Mi Families is prepping programs for provider trainings, parent workshops, family events and youth services. New programs and schedules are developed each season. As the fall season approaches the schedule is filling up quickly and enrollment is starting for our tots to teen programs. Sundays will be saved for special events, Mondays thru Saturdays there will be child care and tutoring options, EXCEPT Wednesdays – I’ll be offering services at the Northern Michigan Homeschool Partnership. Since I’m a busy teacher, and a mommy, some programs will be facilitated by others on the Mi Families-tree team.
Mi Families is growing members and team mates to keep up with program demands. If you have questions about our programs please email me at Christi@MiFamilies.com or network with us on LinkedIn, Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, etc… Social media is a super way to see what we’re about, but in todays world human interaction is super important so find out how you can participate – or sign up your child for our 2-12 year old services. As summer camp winds down children will transition from various camp themes, such as “Hero Camp”, to Back2School themes such as “all about me, my family and friends.”
This week at Hero Camp we’re learning how we can all grow up to be heroes. Some have ambitions to become community helpers, others are planning to discover super powers and fly in to the rescue with Superman and other famous heroes. All our children’s curriculums are chosen based on open ended experiences and adaptability for different stages and learning styles. One of the curriculums used is Mother Goose Time. Many of the pictures in this article showcase materials from their hero kit. CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT MGT. We have many other curriculums in our resource library.
Some curriculums and materials were purchased and some were offered for product review. I’m often asked by teachers and homeschool parents what supplies I would recommend and I most encourage products that lead to open ended experiences and discoveries. Products that encourage kids to “make a friend, make believe and make a mess” are the best teaching tools. Products that encourage kids to be creative and be adventurous indoors and outside are what I recommend. I also recommend you signing your kids up for Adventure Academy this fall! Our youth services are perfect for those who want to tryout “preschool,” those young 5’s who aren’t ready for all-day-every-day kindergarten, and for those homeschoolers who want to get out with friends!
