Learning Together with Mother Goose Time and Favorite things Friday #11

Welcome back to another Favorite things Friday, where I invite all of you to share (via comments or by linking up your posts below) YOUR favorite things of the week.

This week has gone by in a blur, honestly, the days have all just kind of mashed together. School-wise it’s gone well, we’ve managed to get a lot accomplished. But every day is jam packed with just stuff to do and somehow I am sitting here writing another Friday post when it feels like Monday still (ahhhhh!).

Rhyme Time with Mother Goose Time

This week my favorite school moment was this awesome rhyming activity with Mother Goose Time. We have told this little rhyme a TON in our home, so the kids knew it well, but the little folding poster was a lot of fun and my 6 year old daughter decided we should make a video to share (um, hello videographer class ;)).

We then popped over to the school room and the kids got to make their own beds out of containers and napkins and re-enact the rhyme with their cut out monkeys. I LOVED this activity because I watched my preschooler re-enact the story, repeat the rhyme, care for her little monkeys (put bandages on them as the doctor) and count how many there were. In ONE activity we were doing math, language arts, fine arts, and health and career (well, at a preschool level that is ;)).

The kids wanted me to include THEIR favorite Mother Goose Time activity from the week, which was our Family Fun Day. The kids got to make a postcard inviting someone to Family Fun Day. We spent a lot of time reminiscing some of the best days we have had together and choosing what to draw on our invitation. Then they invited someone to the party! The younger kids invited mom and dad, but the older ones we looked up some of their cousins addresses and they learned how to address a postcard at the same time.

Mother Goose Time Favorite things Friday

One of my favorite things about Mother Goose Time is how each day incorporated so many different facets of learning and that we are learning together! One activity can teach math skills, language arts, science, and more! It continues to remain our favorite part of the day and this month’s theme has been a HOOT.

Favorite things Friday Featured Post by  LindseyLoo

Apple and stack of books

This weeks featured post is from Simply LindseyLoo titled “How to Plan Your Homeschool Year“. We’ve been talking a lot about planners this week with the Home Life and Student Planner Giveaway I have going on and this post was just so timely. I love seeing how other people plan and organize their school year, and I know you do too! Lindsey talks about how she is NOT Type A and because of that, the need to plan for her is even more important if she is going to fit everything in. She starts off by telling you HOW she plans and finishes off giving you an inside look at her daily routine. I just loved how comprehensive it was and found it a great read. Check out her post and make sure to check her out on Facebook!
