Mother Goose Time offers a variety of add-ons to their great preschool curriculum. You can get Little Goose for toddlers, More Math and Literacy for kids that are ready for more "book learnin'", Dance 'n Beats for physical education/dance, and Experience God for teaching Little Ones about God.
Little Guy and I were doing a good enough job at blogging about Mother Goose Time that we were offered an add-on kit for free in exchange for more reviewing! *side note: I always say Little Guy and I because while I do the "work" side of things with the blogging, if it were not for him and his hard work we wouldn't have anything to review!* I had a hard time choosing between Dance 'n Beats and Experience God, but I found out I was doing a terrible job at his Bible Education when we were talking about what was read and what was not real and he said God wasn't real. So we had a talk about that, and my decision was made simple!
*another side note: We were driving to my grandparents' house this week and we passed a church. I pointed out the cross to Little Guy, and the following conversation occurred -
Me: Who died on the cross?
Little Guy: Jesus.
Me: Why did he die on the cross?
Little Guy: To take away our sins.
Me: I am so happy you know that!!!
Little Guy: Can I have my sins back?
Me: I guess I have not done a good enough job explaining this...
We then discussed the matter a bit more and I explained that sins are bad things we do, and we can't go to heaven if we have them. I said they are yucky and we don't want them back. I think he sort of gets it now...*
There is a teacher pack with instructions, activities, prayer ideas, and questions to ask. Each day is designed to only take about 10 minutes. It also has instruction on how to use it as a Sunday School curriculum instead of a preschool add-on.
Each day there is an activity to do that helps the children learn the main topic (This month is God Wants Me To Obey) and the applicable story (Moses in the Desert - because Mother Goose Time is the queen of the theme - Our main curriculum topic is Discover the Desert!). Just like the main curriculum, each month is divided into four parts, each with a different theme.
