Zahavah loves reading about zoo animals and as such the theme "At The Zoo"
was added to her thematics for this school year.
I hesitated before picking out themes for Zahavah's school year. After all, a toddler does not quite register that there is a theme going on through the day/week I thought. Still, having thematics can help establish a curriculum filled with activities and as such, I decided to use themes this year. My choices were based on basic concepts such as letters and numbers, the seasons and their holidays as well as themes I knew she'd enjoy.
Zahavah's Themes for School Year 2012-2013
Body Parts & By the Seashore
Shapes & Halloween
Colors & Thanksgiving
Pets & Christmas
Clothing & At the Zoo
In the Kitchen & Valentine's Day
Vehicles & Easter
On the farm & Springtime
Alphabet & Bugs
Numbers & Summertime
Independence Day & Picnics & Camping
As you can see, I've chosen only two themes per month...which means Zahavah and I will be exploring each theme for approximately two weeks. At this point, I do believe it will be enough. Zahavah is still young and needs a lot of unstructured play as well, but I am willing to adjust, shall we fall short of concepts to explore.
