Review by: Yvonne
“Teach Me Mommy”, is the ultimate answer to my prayers as a day care
provider! This awesome preschool learning
guide is very thorough in helping parents, teachers, and day care
providers to plan activities for fun-filled, educational
days. The book is divided into twenty-six themes with an average of three
to six days worth of activities based
on the theme. Each day is then broken down into segments consisting of
different activities such as stories, songs, finger
plays, crafts, activities, and snack surrounding the day’s topic.
For instance, in chapter eleven, the
theme is December Holidays. This theme consists of eleven days of
different activities surrounding
the many topics we can teach about in December. Including, Santa Claus,
Christmas, decorations, menorahs,
Kwanzaa, and Hanukkah to name a few!
You can easily adapt these outlines to suit your available materials and
stories. You can choose to follow it to a tee, or add topics to
cover on your own. Geared toward preschoolers, this book enables the
parents or caregivers to layout the groundwork of a structured
learning experience, in helping to prepare the child for school. With over
three hundred pages of learning fun, a recipe section,
music section, and special holiday section, this book is a very valuable
resource for parents, caregivers, and teachers alike.
This is a must-have book, even if you only use it for special holidays
when your school-aged children are home. It will be well worth the
smiles! “Mom, I’m bored!” will become a saying of the past for your
child. Don’t we all wish to give our preschoolers the head start they
so deserve? For under $25.00, this book is the perfect answer for the
parent who struggles with the cost of nursery school. Parents are
the best teachers and role models for their own children; why not make the
best of it!
