We’re having an adventurous summer as a family and through Mi – Mini – Camps! During the summer Mi Families (“my families) offers flexible summer camp options for tots to teens. Families don’t have to commit to full time services and can build their schedule based on part-time or on-call needs! We have only 2 weeks left of this summer’s program, but have a couple openings due to other families taking vacation time…
This past week we had lots of families out on their own summer adventures and we can’t wait to hear about their treasured times spent together. Adventures should always include treasured times – and treasure hunting! While finishing up our summer travels unit we talked about the treasures we can find while exploring. We talked about natural treasures and world wonders and man made mysteries…
Man made mysteries were a great transition for our next unit on Story Telling. Our kids have been loving telling mystery stories around campfires. We’ve been telling tales about our summer adventures, and now it’s time to tell “Back to School” stories. As we head back to school we’ll be learning about schools around the world, and read fables and folktales that teach us about the world, different cultures, and encourage character building.
Fables and Folktale lessons will be using Mother Goose Time’s prepackaged curriculum. As teachers and homeschoolers prepare for back to school I’d recommend this easy to use curriculum for preschoolers. If you use a multi-age/stage approach lessons can be simplified for the littlest of learners to learn concepts, while older students can expand on the themed lessons.
While finishing up the Nature Detectives curriculum from MGT, our older students used lessons to further research on surviving in the wild, how to build shelters, how to read a compass and star maps, how to forge for food, how to find treasure… What they found was the treasure of play and creating away from technology this summer! If you’d like to join us next summer for such treasures email Christi@MiFamilies.com.
Feel free to also email regarding our fall programs. We’re preparing for tutoring and education-through-recreation groups for youth, family events and playgroups, parent and provider workshops… Updates will be posted on our www.MiFamilies.com webpage as well as our social media sites: Facebook, Pinterest. YouTube, LinkedIN… Let us know where else you’d like us to be posting program reminders!
