God Is An Artist - Mother Goose Time

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.

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

Pros:
- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs


Cons:
- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Is Mother Goose Time Worth The Money?

Last night my husband asked me if I thought that Mother Goose Time was worth the money if I didn't get it for free.  I think this is an excellent question, and one that people probably want to know.

How Much Does It Cost?:
Mother Goose Time costs $75 a month for one child, including shipping if you buy it month to month.  If you can order and pre-pay ahead of time, you can save up to 15%, depending on how far ahead you pre-pay.  If you have more than one child using the curriculum it is only about $5 a month to add a child.  Many of the products provided cover the entire class, including manipulatives and story books.  The things that each child needs come packaged in their own bag for each child.

What I Think of the Curriculum:
The curriculum is great.  It is thorough and engaging.  It provides me with ideas and supplies to teach my son things I never would have thought to teach him, but will make him a very well rounded person.  He now talks about things he never would have talked…
