A Ticket to Travel

A Ticket to Travel

The children will pack their bags as they visit a variety of popular destinations and discuss modes of transportation commonly used for travel.

Time Periods

This theme will enable opportunities to learn about different times in history, including Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, the Renaissance, and medieval times. Throughout the month, the children will draw medieval attire as well as work as a class to build a pyramid.

Read to Me

Read to Me

This theme is back by popular demand! The Learning Experience® has a strong outlook on early literacy, and this topic reinforces this belief. The month kicks off with Read Across America Day and the celebration of Dr. Seuss’s birthday. The children will enjoy learning about a variety of authors and many different story genres!

Plants, Gardens, and Bugs, Oh My!

Plants, Gardens, and Bugs, Oh My!

This theme will be sure to have your skin crawling. The children will be discussing life cycles of plants and the benefits to the earth of planting gardens. Meanwhile, as they look at bugs via their magnifying glasses, they will learn how these little creatures aid and benefit plants and gardens alike.

We Are All Special

We Are All Special

The children will have the opportunity to learn how we are the same and different. Additional topics include “Families,” “What Makes Us Special,” and “Peacemakers.” You will be invited to take part as this monthly theme will have a special emphasis on doing good and philanthropy.

Once Upon a Time at TLE®

One of the things we hear most in the curriculum department is about how much the original TLE® themes are loved. During this month of curriculum, the children will revisit some of the most popular previously written themes, which include “Dinosaurs,” “Fairy Tales,” “Space,” and “Under the Sea!”

In Our Neighborhoods

In Our Neighborhoods

This theme is an excellent introduction for the children to learn about their centers, communities, and, on a larger scale, their states. As they learn about their local communities, they will also have the opportunity to discover job roles and discuss what they imagine themselves being when they grow up.

Healthy Habits

During this month, learning will focus around the importance of eating healthy. Special attention will be given to including physical hygiene as a part of a daily routine. Physical health and safety practices will also be a part of the exploration this month.

Harvest

Children will have fun opportunities to uncover ideas, including “Down on the Farm,” “The Animals,” “Growing Food and the Tools Used,” and, finally, “Farm to Table” where the children will sample farm fresh foods.

Forces of Nature

Forces of Nature

Everyone will be amazed with this theme! Children will investigate the earth, wind, and water through hands-on activities and scientific explorations. They will be making their own tornado tubes and glaciers and discussing the cause and effect of such forces.
