It’s natural to be curious about nature.
Mi Families uses natural and nature based learning in many of our programs.
Mi Families (“my families”) facilitates youth programs, parent workshops, provider trainings…
Many of our programs have an “education through recreation” curriculum.
Our curriculums have a natural flow transitioning through themes.
Our littlest learners loved transitioning from the bug theme to growing gardens.
While exploring gardening we began learning about the importance of water.
Our multi age programs use the same themes but simplify/expand on unit lessons.
While little learners wondered about water, older students built water ways.
While learning about water ways and landforms, students discussed ways to care for our world.
We use top rated curriculums for our lessons, such as Mother Goose Time.
MGT provides a monthly theme-based curriculum, such as “Bubbles, boats & floats.”
MGT can be easily modified for tots to learn new concepts, while tweens dive deeper into subject matters.
All subjects are taught through hands on activities using a stage before age approach.
All subjects are taught using our STREAMS acronym:
Science, Technology, Reading (&wRiting), Engineering, Arts, (Music&) Math, Social Studies (&hiStory).
All subjects are available in our large and small classes, as well as in our small group and individualized tutoring sessions.
The pictures posted were from this past weeks youth programs.
Next week we’ll continue enjoying our wet&wacky adventures.
Next week we’ll wonder about the uses of water, what lives in water, and about water transportation.
We’ll continue learning about ways to appreciate and conserve water!
Students may get wet and messy during our activities so please dress accordingly.
From the youngest to the oldest all students explore learning materials.
Even in our parent workshops and provider trainings – adults explore materials.
Adults learn how to teach when they actively explore materials and play with students.
This week challenge yourself to explore materials and the world with your kids.
