Family Tree from Week 1, Lesson 1 in Mother Goose Time’s Family and Pets unit for September is a great example of some of the supplies that Mother Goose Time provides with the curriculum. When the new school year kicks off, it is always busy. Teachers are getting to know the kids and the kids are getting to know the routine. Anything that can be done ahead of time is always helpful. One thing we love about using Mother Goose Time’s curriculum is that they help take so much of the guess work out of planning.
For the My Family Tree activity, Mother Goose Time provided the Title Display and Inspiration Photo, and for each child they provided background paper, green paper, brown paper, and the circle stickers. All that the teachers had to provide was glue, markers, scissors and real leaves. These were materials that the teachers already have in their classrooms so they were not hard to gather, and for the leaves, the children had fun collecting them from outside!
Our teachers love that Mother Goose Time provides so many of the materials because it helps make planning easier.
