Intentional Discovery

I’ve started working on a plan of intentional education for Asante for the rest of the year. He’s only 20 months old, so I don’t want to be hyper structured in the way I’m teaching him. However, I’ve noticed that he learns well in themes, so I decided to plan 2 themes a month, each for about 2 and a half weeks, where we focus on learning about a certain subject. Here’s what I have so far:
August: 1.) Moving/Forest/Outdoors
2.) Body Parts
September: 1.) Music
2.) Colors
October: 1.) Fall
2.) Food
November: 1.) Family and Birthday
2.) Thanksgiving
December: 1.) Winter
2.) Holiday
I’m researching books, videos, CDs/music, activities, and discussion topics for each theme, along with making some loose objectives for each one. If anyone has any age-appropriate suggestions, let me know! We’ll be using the Little Red boxes at the library, along with the purple PAL bags if applicable. The Columbia Public Library is amazing and I’m so sad that we’ll be without it in a year.

Anyway, this is what I’ve been working on in my free time! If anyone wants me to work on constructing age-appropriate kits, let me know!
