What's In The Mother Goose Time Box? Part Two

Last time I gave an overview of what was in my Mother Goose Time box for December.  Today I will give more details on exactly what kinds of things are in each specific bag.  I will probably do a few of these, because I want to keep them reasonably short, and there is a TON of stuff!  Just so you know I have been messing with this curriculum a lot since I got it, and there might be a few pieces that ended up back in the wrong bags.

Like I said last time, the first bag is an introductory bag.  It has the Getting Started guide, which has an overview of how to use the curriculum and set up your circle time display, and some additional information.  You only get this bag once a year.

This is my display (you provide your own board or tape it to the wall).  Some of the stuff is on the back (friendly bees, world map, and color palette).  The guide and CD, extra labels and school stuff is not pictured because that picture got corrupted...
The Circle Time Display includes a number tree, alphabet strip (which you are supposed cut to look like grass, but I just taped it on there all lazy like), month labels for the calendar, an artist's palette for the color of the month, a friendly bee hive with a ribbon for character traits, a world map, Mother Goose and her nest, a weather sign and weather pieces, day of the week clouds, cloud labels and a Circle Time CD.  It has velcro and clothespins for the changing pieces.  Also included are Investigation Station signs (for different play areas such as math, sensory, dramatic play, etc.), a Family Information Guide, and I'm a Little Helper Booklet.  These pieces probably won't be used at our house, and are intended more for preschools.

This is most of the stuff for December.  Some of the stuff (letter "V" and /v/ phonics cards, calendar, poster and number 7) is already on the Circle Time display.
Each month you get new Circle Time display pieces, which come in their own bag.  You get a calendar and calendar numbers that match the theme and/or season, a theme poster, letter flags for the letters of the month, a friendly bee that says what the character trait of the month is, a Circle Time CD that correlates with the theme and a song ring so you can know the words, a paint brush and color daub, phonics photo cards, global friends for the world map, big numbers and number leaves for your number tree, the shape of the month, and hands on letters of the month.

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. 

- 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

- 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…
