       This is a guide to developmentally appropriate activities in many learning areas – home life/social emotional, math/manipulatives, art/music, science/sensory, language/literacy, outdoor/gross motor, and field trip suggestions. Very little prep is needed to do the activities, just gather the supplies and books listed for a complete introduction with young children or accompaniment to your math and phonics/reading for kindergarten, 1st or 2nd grade. Each month (September through May) incorporates a theme and a character trait into the activities, and is 3-hole punched so you can place the pages in a binder for easy access and storage. Printables are included and step-by-step instructions will make it easy for any parent to work through the activities. You should plan on 2 to 4 activities per day, but plan for what fits into your schedule – “flexibility” is the name of this game. 296 pgs, pb.

     

      Within the packet of pages, you will receive a monthly overview printed on card stock that can be hung up so mom can see what they will be covering during the month – a good visual and planning tool. Sections on the monthly overview list the activities to be done in each area of learning. An Introduction to the program explains the philosophy and a list of what will be covered by theme and character trait. The rest of the pages have beautiful photographs, and step-by-step instructions for implementation.

      Let me give you a sampling of one month of the program. The theme for September is “The World I Live In,” and the character trait is “wonder.” Mom’s Toolbox is the first part of every month and this is where some special resources or items will be listed. In September the “Private Eye” loupe and the book Global Art by Mary Ann Kohl are mentioned. Anything found in the “Mom’s Toolbox” section would be good to get your hands on for incorporation later in the lesson. Home Life and Social/Emotional is the first activity section for September and includes the activities of using balloons and a laundry basket to ‘take a hot air balloon ride,’ make a hot air balloon snack, practice your manners by saying please/thank you, clearing dishes after a meal, and planning an emergency exit plan for your home. You can tell already that not all activities will work for all ages, but that’s the beauty – you can adapt as you need to, pick-and-choose as you see fit. The book list for September includes Hot Air, A House is a House for Me, Can You Hear It, Frog and Toad, and He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands. Language and Literacy for September includes tactile letter practice, children developing their own story, and making a book. Math and Manipulatives include activities such as counting and swinging, making a spindle box (counting box), making shapes, a nature math book, and playing a water bottle marble game. Science and Sensory will have your little ones exploring outdoors with simple tools like magnifiers, binoculars, nature guides, etc., making a nature journal and a pendulum, cooking up a batch of herbal tea play dough and creating nature scenes, making an artistic pond, and make a nesting set using cans. Art and Music includes using chicken wire to use as a weaving loom with fabric scraps, making a painting on a long piece of butcher paper, sculpting clay tree faces, using coffee filters to create artistic reproductions, making salt and mirror art, and learning the song, “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands.” Gross Motor and Outside has activities to develop ball skills and play games like Squish the bug, Hit the Hula Hoop, Wonder-Ball and running an obstacle course. Field Trip suggestions are touring the local news station or grocery store. At the end of each month is a supply list so you can see everything at a glance for easier preparation; most items will be things from around your home. A page for monthly memories and two planning pages are included at the end of the month, as well.

      Throughout each month, on every page, are photographs of the activities and children performing the tasks mentioned on the pages. Each month follows a similar format, so it’s pretty easy to get into a routine that fits your lifestyle. The Printables are on card stock and include photos, game instructions and game pieces, and other items that are mentioned during the monthly activities.

      Intended to give some guidance but not dictate the schedule, Year of Playing Skillfully can become a partner for you and your family as you begin the educational journey with your young learners. ~ Donna

    Neither intensive nor too informal, this curriculum strikes an excellent balance in beginning instruction. Lessons focus on reading skills, but also incorporate math, science, Bible, art, character development, creative thinking and childrens literature. There are 26 thematic units total, with each unit taking five days to complete. Daily lessons will take 60-90 minutes.

    Beginning reading lessons are systematic and thorough, using tactile, visual and auditory methods to teach children letters and letter sounds. The corresponding letter flashcards are beautifully illustrated with animals and other items from Gods creation. Letters are not introduced in alphabetical order, but in an order to facilitate early blending into words (for early reinforcement of phonetic skills) and to correspond with elements of creation. (For example, S is introduced first along with a science lesson about the Sun. Students also construct a sundial, make raisins, paint a sun and see how, like the sun, Jesus is the light of the world.) Textured letters are integral to the lessons (see below), as are the flashcards. Handwriting is also incorporated as are various games, songs, drawing, cut & paste, and other reinforcing activities. By lesson 6, children begin blending letter sounds into simple words. By the end, they'll be reading simple stories. Each unit also has a recommended children's literature title. Math concepts include counting, writing numerals, charts and graphs, sequencing, comparing, classifying, ordinal numbers, fractions (whole and half), time, money, and simple addition/subtraction. Science topics match the illustrations on the alphabet flashcards and consist of objects that can be observed in nature.

    The Limited Ed. Package includes the Teacher's Manual; student sheets; alphabet flashcards, Lauri lower-case alphabet puzzle; What Really Happened to the Dinosuars?; For the Children's Sake; Cuisenaire Rods; Cuisenaire Rods Alphabet Book; Say Hello to Classical Music; an inflatable globe and the MFW Kindergarten Literature Collection with 26 stories to be used with the units. Ant Hill and Butterfly Garden kits are not included in the kits but highly recommended for customers in the 48 states. Both insect kits are also available from us separately.

    New from Learning without Tears, is the Transitional Kindergarten course which teaches capitals, lower case letters and numbers with developmentally appropriate lessons. The heart of the teaching is found in the Teacher Guide. While it may be possible to use the student book without it, children will not receive the depth of instruction.

    Beginning with the introduction, the Teacher Guide reviews the stages of learning and provides a scope and sequence for this level. Teaching guidelines and strategies, multisensory activities, and correct writing posture follow. Detailed lessons corresponding to the student workbook are included. Cross curricular connections and supportive instruction for ELL and Enrichment students are integrated for each lesson. Additional teaching support and activities are available online with the purchase of the teacher guide.


    At this level, manipulatives recommended include: Wood pieces set for capital letters, Capital Letter cards and mat for wood pieces, Mat Man, Rock, Rap, Tap & Learn CD, Slate Chalkboard and Blackboard with Double Lines, Little Chalk Bits, Little Sponge Cubes, Flip Crayons, and Pencils for Little Hands. SC. TG is 206 pgs. ~Deanne
