If I have said it once I will probably say it 6000 more times. Mother Goose Time is the ultimate theme creator. Every month we get a box PACKED full of curriculum that is matched perfectly to the month's theme. Storybooks, games, manipulatives, you name it, it "goes"!!!
The Experience God add-on is no different. God is an Artist fits seamlessly with our Art Studio theme we had this month. It is SOOO true as well. God is the ULTIMATE artist. God made the world and everything in it! Even the best artist has never created anything more than tributes to the beauty God has created.
Every month the Experience God Teacher's Kit comes with Story Cards. These cards usually have pictures related to the story that help the children remember. On the back is the story you read to them, complete with prompts to make it more interactive. This month was a little different, instead of 4-5 cards, we got seven cards, one for each day of creation. The Storytelling Set was pictures from the middle five cards, that the children could add to the first picture. It was really clever, and I love when Mother Goose Time changes things up, but still keeps them familiar.
Along with the Story Cards, Teacher's Guide, and Storytelling Set, each Teacher's kit also comes with a memory verse. Most of the time Little Guy is great at memorizing them, but I didn't try very hard this month. The verse was longer than usual, and although quite relevant to the month's theme, I think it was a little tough for a three year old to remember. Although that was partially my fault. If I were better about doing Mother Goose Time everyday he probably could have memorized it by the end of the month no problem.
The Teacher Guide is great. It has instructions for using it as a part of your day, or using it as a Sunday School curriculum. The main theme is separated into 4 weekly themes, and each week has 5 games, projects or lessons along with devotional content to help the kids really understand what they are learning.
Each child gets a Child Pack, which contain family newsletter with coloring pages on the back, and art supplies for four projects that are connected to the theme. While we don't do much with them since I am Mama and teacher, they would be excellent to use in a classroom setting to keep parents involved.
