This week has been a bit of a time sucking black pit of illness. Which probably sounds pretty bad, but I have to be honest with you, and say it was. It was pretty bad. It’s getting better. We’ve had fevers, and tummy bugs, and all sorts of whiny madness between the three (cough, okay, four of us, because I was pretty whiny too) and things just haven’t been getting done around here.
Which means today’s preschool post is more about what I am hoping happens this month, because we have only managed to get one “school day” in since July started. Tomorrow is a new day, y’all, and I am daydreaming all about it.
So- Mother Goose Time. It’s a preschool program, technically.
However, this month, we’re testing a theory I have. Mr. Man is recently 6, and is technically a first grader this fall. This month, I am having him “do” Mother Goose Time right along with Little Miss. Since she is on the young end (quite nearly 3) she hasn’t been able to do every included activity, as I don’t require her to read or write yet. But Mr. Man CAN read and write, and from the looks of the materials, there is no reason a Kinder kid can’t do them too.
I really think he’s going to love the theme of this month. I’m going to have him do everything in the book, and beef it up a little with his separate phonics and math programs, and call that that this month. I think combining kids is going to be great for me, and hopefully, at the end of the month I’ll be able to confirm that Mother Goose Time is indeed a reasonable kindergarten option for most kids.
Wish me Luck!
