Summer Fun with Experience Preschool
Updated: May 25, 2020
As an Experience Early Learning Blog Ambassador, we receive the Experience Early Learning preschool curriculum in exchange for sharing our honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. As always, our opinions on amazing things for children are 100% our own. Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best judgement when planning activities for your children.
The kiddos are wrapping up Bugs & Crawly Things via distance learning and we're all super excited to be headed back to the classroom!
If you've been following along with our posts, then you know that the toddlers and preschoolers have been busy working on lots of fun take home activities.
And toward the end of last week, the teachers started cleaning and organizing and getting things ready to have a spectacular summer after learning at home for approximately two months.
Today I wanted to share some fun things that Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) does during the summer.
I love the June, July and August themes because they always have a "summer camp" feel to them.
Our first theme this summer is going to be Island Treasure and not only is it a review of everything that we've learned so far this school year with Experience Preschool, they also added a fun new Experience Club curriculum that's meant for the school age kiddos that looks really great too.
Week 1 means topics related to Setting Sail. We're going to learn about Island, Boat, Captain, Wind, and Sunshine.
After that, it's At the Beach. We'll talk about Crab, Sandcastles, Shells, Sunglasses, and Sunscreen.
Week 3 focuses on Exploring the Island and the topics are Treasure Map, Volcano, Cave, Coconut Tree, and Waterfall.
And last but not least, Island Fun. We'll talk about Luau and Island Dancing, learn about Surfing, and explore Island Music and Sunset.
I could totally see wrapping up this theme with a luau of our own!
It's going to be a ton of fun! What a great topic to wrap up the school year, don't you think?
One of my favorite things about this curriculum as a teacher is the gorgeous magazine-style Teacher Guides. Every month we receive four full-color guides - one for each week.
Not only are they beautiful, but they're also practical. It's so easy to just grab the current week's, take a quick look and start teaching.
Each one is organized in a way that makes it easy to find what you're looking for, prepare things ahead of time and even adapt the activities for your particular group of kiddos.
This curriculum is a preschool teacher's dream and of course the children love it too!
