I’m finding it hard to keep up with articles this summer! Between friends coming over for daycare, and students attending our summer school program, and my own family enjoying summer activities – it’s been a busy month! Here’s a link to next months busy schedule! JULY 2018
Summer schedules for many are different then their school year routines. Summer schedules can create anxiety for kiddos who rely on predictable daily patterns. I recommend posting a calendar with upcoming events or daily activity list for easier transitions.
I also recommend posting daily expectation lists to calm the chaos! For example my own kids have a chart to complete their chores and homework before they can have tech time (computer/tv options). They also have limited tech time and spend a LOT of time outside!
This summer we’ll be spending lots of time outdoors enjoying Mother Goose Time’s – Nature Detectives – curriculum! MGT provides a preschool based curriculum that is designed for little learners to be introduced to new concepts.
Older students love to expand on MGT themes. So when tots play in the water, tweens are researching waterways and waterlife. Students help decide where themes lead us as we learn about the world around us. As we head into our nature studies we’re finishing learning about the indoors.
We’ve been learning about habitats and homes and communities this past month. This week we’ve studied homes that travel such as campers and house boats. We made maps and destination bucket lists. We discussed summer vacations and exploring big cities to natural landmarks.
As we continue to learn this summer, we’ll continue to connect with nature and our friends. We invite more friends to join in the fun as we have a couple part time spaces still available for child care or summer school – tutoring. Please email me at Christi@MiFamilies.com for more information.
Also feel free to visit www.MiFamilies.com (or find us on LinkedIN, Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, etc) for more information about our youth programs, our family events, our parent workshops, and our provider trainings! We’re going to start scheduling out fall programs NEXT MONTH!!!! JULY 2018
