Changes

We’re still in the first quarter of 2019, but it’s already been the year of changes for my family – and Mi Families.

Mi Families (“my families”) continues to add new programs to our list for families and those who work with families.

All programs are uniquely designed and use top rated curriculums.

Our littlest learners love using our theme based kits through Mother Goose Time.

This month our theme has been health and fitness.

As we start a new month we transition to Desert Discoveries.

Transitions are changes made slowly, so this week we reviewed “healthy me” lessons.

20190227_133540

We talked about ways to stay healthy by eating our fruits and veggies, washing our hands, and getting exercise.

Sometimes it’s hard to get exercise in Northern Michigan winters – where people spend too much time indoors.

In all our classes we make sure to work out both our large and small motor skills.

In tot to tween classes we move our bodies and minds pretending to be animals and explorers.

Just as we work out our bodies, we work out our brains to make them stronger and smarter.

Thinking up ways to stay active – we played a lot of pretend while exploring the world around us.

20190225_172607

We explored the world of art and talked about what we know – and what we want to know.

20190227_133806

This week students wanted to learn more about animals that live in different places.

20190227_133921

For exercise we did a lot of animal and transportation charade games.

We had animal Olympic events – indoors and outside.

20190227_155011

We even pretended we were not living in a snow-covered-land and had a day at the water-park.

It’s still winter in our area so it’s fun to pretend and learn more about warm places.

20190227_171622

We designed transportation systems to visit warm places around the world.

20190301_111643

We talked about how animals use their super senses for migration, adaptation, and hibernation in the winter.

20190227_130803

We talked about animals and people that live in places that are warm and never have any snow…

20190227_171428

We time traveled back to deserts during ancient times…

20190227_085858

We pretended to ride camels to the great pyramids and explored hieroglyphics.

20190227_085905

We explored large and small creatures that would have lived long ago and those that still live in the desert today.

20190227_151012

While exploring desert animals we created our own –

20190227_151037

We made up stories of desert animals living in the north pole – and penguins living in the desert.

20190227_131517

We learned about desert animals that sleep during the hot sunny days and play at night.

20190227_131808

We made post cards pretending to visit the desert and adventures we’d have with the nocturnal animals.

Tots to tweens love learning about other places.

20190227_131257

We’ll continue learning about other places as we transition out of our winter activities and into our spring themes.

20190227_131059

From tutor time to homeschool classes Mi Families is lesson planning for some fun spring activities.
