JUNE 2018 (click 4 calendar) Mi Families (“my families”) reaches out with resources – in attempt to connect others with supportive materials, information, and people that benefit their lives. Our education-through-recreation program approach is not only resourceful, but fun, with a goal to put the fun in FUNctional for families, and those who work with families.
Functional means the operation of a specific task, designed to be practical and useful, rather than entertaining or fun. Too often parents and providers (such as daycare staff or teachers) say they do the minimum to make sure kids are safe and jobs are completed. BUT what if you found ways to have fun completing tasks and caring for kids?
Mi Families offers provider trainings and parent workshops to help adults learn FUN tricks, tips and tools. Mi Families also offers developmental programs for tots to teens teaching them FUN ways to learn. Developmental programs, such as tutor time, use a unique Adventure Academy curriculum that adapts to students unique learning styles.
Some parents use our youth services for time to run errands or go on a date, some parents take the opportunity to stay and build up their tool bag of fun ways to help their children learn. This week we’ve continued learning about houses and how to be respectful to others and responsible for ourselves at home. If your child attended ask them about their chore challenges!
We’ve been using Mother Goose Time’s “Alphabet House” curriculum to learn about homes and communities. Next week we’ll be expanding our home studies to learn more about homes in our community, across our state, around our country, even the world! We’ll be learning about how our home and family is connected with the whole world and ways to be responsible and respectful beyond our front door.
Theme lessons connect early learners with the world around them, while encouraging older students to expand on topics and connect all subject matters.
