I'm not sure if btown hospital does this, but mine up here has a "pantry" for young moms and their kids where people in the community donate formula, bottles, clothes toys,etc. the young parents earn "bucks" to use at the pantry by going to child are classes, working with mentors to help get them their GED, etc. they have volunteers who help stock the shelves and explain to the moms how to use their new items like slings
So, ya'll have talents that I simply do not have. I mean, I'm good at.....breastfeeding. But I can't really teach that to a class I just feel bad because I don't feel like I have as many "extras" to offer as the other moms do. I just don't need to compare myself to them.
We study nature a lot. We use natural playground. We bird watch. Make bird feeders. We study our native animals. We use teachable moments. Such as finding things in nature that they are interested in. We've played in vernal pools. Found salamanders. Observed a bunny. We use the computer as a research tool. We study any topic the kids are interested in. We do not have set units but we are required to incorporate math, science, literacy, social studies, social emotional, and gross motor into everyday activities and our current studies.
