More classes descriptions, times, and information about other community collaborations will be posted soon! The leaves are starting to change and so are our programs! We had a wonderful Summer session, but are anxious to fall into fall fun!
Provider trainings and parent workshops provide resources, such as curriculum reviews.
Mi Families reviews curriculums that build up brains and bodies!
Mi Families also creates curriculums encouraging “education through recreation.”
Recreation is defined as an “activity done for enjoyment when one is not working.”
One can argue that learning is work, but learning should also be fun.
One should enjoy learning throughout their life.
No matter our age we should want to learn new things and explore new places.

This week we’ll continue learning about the wonderful world of water – as we make bubbles washing while we do our spring cleaning – and transition into other water activities and water life (Using the MGT curriculum).
It’s Easter week! Which means our week has been cut short for Easter festivities.
Our snow has been falling then melting then falling then melting,
so no idea if we’ll be hiding eggs in snowbanks!
BUT however we celebrate we’ll have fun.
If you celebrate Easter – happy Easter!
If you don’t I hope you still enjoy your weekend.
I hope you enjoy Easter / Spring filled adventures.
This week in our learning adventures we used old Mother Goose Time supplies.
Mother Goose Time is a curriculum that provides theme based crafts, manipulatives, music, etc…
Sometimes I have left over materials, or save certain supplies for holiday fun!
Materials that can be reused I often laminate to use over and over.
Sometimes we re used materials to remember old lessons and transition to new topics.
Easter transitions nice to or from stories like “the Tortoise and the Hare.”
This week we learned about different types of rabbits, turtles, birds…
We also learned about life that hatches out of eggs like turtles, birds, frogs, caterpillars…
Next week we’ll finish up our Butterfly learning activities and transition into learning about bees!
Next week we’ll also go on bug hunts and explore spring activities like BBQ’s and bike riding…
Many of our learning adventures use “education through recreation” curriculums.
Mi Families programs will often be outdoors so dress appropriately for Michigan’s weather.
Michigan’s weather is always changing and so are Mi Families programs!
Mi Families continues to provide programs for families and those who work with families.
