What’s your favorite dance? What’s your favorite animal? What’s your favorite instrument or song? The activities in this unit will help us answer these questions, discover our preferences, and become more self-aware in the process. Along this journey of self-awareness, we’ll also develop our motor, language, and vocal skills using songs, music, movements, and instrument play-alongs. Prepare to ribbit like a frog, roll like a pig, and swing like a monkey as we join the Animals A-Dancing!

Get ready to spruce up the house in this home-themed unit. We’ll turn tasks such as cooking, cleaning, sawing, painting, and hammering into fun, pretend-play activities that make us move more creatively and use our imaginations. At the same time, we’ll explore the relationship between sounds and symbols, and build community as we sing and play together. Whether it’s a great big house (or a den, nest, or burrow!), there’s no place like Home Sweet Home!
Gather your critters! It’s time for some pet-themed fun as we sing, dance, play instruments, and share our experiences of the animals that bring love and laughter into our lives. We’ll gallop like horses, scamper like mice, and fly like birds as we develop our motor skills, vocabulary, recall, imagination, and so much more. Get ready to meow, neigh, woof, and squeak along as we all join in the Pet Parade!
Come and get it! There’s nothing that gives us more joy and comfort than sharing good food and good stories with those we love. In this unit, we’ll explore food – from preparing to eating – through songs, vocal play, instruments, and focused listening activities. So wash your hands and put on your apron. It’s time to chop the veggies, mix the pancake batter, and grow some peas. It’s Time for Lunch!
Nursery rhymes endure for a reason. They’re quirky, rhymey, and memorable–and are also magical for speech and language development, as they work to “wire” the brain for communication before speech even begins! What bliss to share something with your child that your parents shared with you–or better yet, to learn and share one for the very first time! Welcome to Mama Goose.
