Around The World- The USA, Intro

Right now I've been planning out the curriculum to use for Am's homepreschooling. She was all set to be enrolled in a real preschool this fall but it looks like we'll be moving, hopefully into our own place this time. That leaves us with no preschool once again- and that's fine. That's a great benefit of being a stay at home mom, I can teach my daughter myself. I've been checking around. We're all set for the fall and will be doing the Harvest Time Preschool Curriculum from Wee Folk Art but that still leaves us with a lot of time on our hands this summer. That's why I've decided to do a loose "Around The World" unit starting with The USA. Each day will have a music CD, movie, craft, food, and book with a bonus gift thrown in every now and again for good behavior (or in our home completing the potty chart).

That brings us to today. Now I'm not making up these idea's. Mostly the crafts and recipes will be links but I'm still gonna post them in case anyone else wants to follow along or have some inspiration. Also, a little about us- while we're not vegetarian we are following a budget and eat mostly meatless meals, especially during the summer when fresh veggies are plentiful. Our food links will reflect that (and our pantry) and might not be the most common food in a country.
