Elion loves music and she loves to dance. I watch her learn through music everyday with Mother Goose Times Circle Time CD that comes with the Mother Goose Time Curriculum. All I have to do is start to play the music and Elion comes running ready to learn and start her day. As I play the music each day, I watch her smile grow. This last week we spent time learning about rainbows, snow, and wonderful weather. Her favorite part is the music and singing.
When Elion was learning about rainbows, she learned a new song. She wanted to sing this song to everyone in her family. Through music play, a child can gain more self-esteem and confidence. Confidence in themselves and confidence with the material they are learning. She knows she is having fun singing, playing, laughing, and dancing. As her mom, I am watching her grow with learning, gaining knowledge, and watching her love for learning grow. Music builds her self-esteem and she gets that great feeling we get inside when we are loving something and that makes us happy. It is so beautiful.
Elion does her Mother Goose Time for preschool everyday and I don’t have to ask her if she wants to because she loves doing it. We have found a wonderful preschool curriculum that fits our family. Take a look at some of the fun activities Elion did this week with Mother Goose Time!
She learned about rain and rainbows. I loved when Elion began to make her rainbow craft. She wanted the colors to be just like the one in the picture you see above. We first talked about rain and rainbows before we began our day. I started asking her at the breakfast table about rain and rainbows. She immediately remembered the sponge activity that we did last week with Spongy Clouds. She told me about the sponges (or clouds) and how they soaked up the water. I was thrilled to listen to her excitement because she knew about rain! How wonderful! She was ready to learn that day about the rain and rainbows.
