Teacher's manual

All Aboard the Animal Train is our year-long hands-on learning adventure for three-year olds. This complete preschool program is flexible and simple to teach. You can begin any time of the year. You can do all the activities, or pick and choose the ones best for you. You can use the program as written for 36 weeks (3 weeks per unit) or shorten it if you want to condense the program for an older three-year-old.

Hands-on learning couldn't be simpler! Easy-to-teach activities are all scheduled for you with almost no preparation. (Who has time to gather ribbon in 6 colors, cut out 50 little penguins, or plan new activities every day?) Your child will learn about 12 animals (one in each unit) through finger plays, creative play, and colorful animal cookie cutters.

Our program is also bursting with fabulous books, all scheduled for you, about each animal. We're excited about this fun, educational curriculum with Biblical values and character development!

Each of the 12 three-week units focuses on a character trait, a color, and an animal. For example, Unit 1 focuses on love (God loves us, so we love God and others), rabbits, and red. In Unit 1 your child will:

  • Hear Bible stories about God's love, sing a Bible song from the included CD, participate in simple character-developing activities, and create a unit poster (from the Student Sheets) to display during the unit.
  • Help make red play dough from scratch, enjoy trying red foods, and go on a red color hunt around the house.
  • Pretend to be a rabbit, learn a rabbit finger play, listen to stories about rabbits, and make a rabbit-shaped sandwich with cookie cutters included in the Package.

You and your child will enjoy four different activities each day:

  1. Clean Up and Together Time — daily activity scheduled in the Teacher's Manual
  2. Story Time — books and poems scheduled in the Teacher's Manual; included in the Basic and Deluxe Packages (A list of optional library books focusing on the 12 animals you will study is also included.)
  3. Surprise Time — five semi-independent activities; toys from the Deluxe Package or other simple-to-gather items listed in the Teacher's Manual
  4. Outside Time — unstructured outside play for health and large motor development
panda

The goals of our program are:

Spiritual Growth
  • God loves us, so we love God and others.
  • Twelve character traits — love, obedience, patience, kindness, sharing, thankfulness, politeness, friendliness, forgiveness, joy, truthfulness, doing your best
  • Three Bible stories and a memory verse for each character trait
Cognitive Development
  • Creative thinking, problem solving, imaginative play
  • Songs and fingerplays
Reading and Math
  • Read-aloud stories and poems to develop reading readiness and a love for books
  • Print awareness, phonemic awareness skills (rhymes, etc.)
  • Informal alphabet readiness — watch the adult write and read words, enjoy several alphabet stories and an optional alphabet art activity
  • Numbers, colors, shapes — a variety of multi-sensory activities develop true understanding
Science
  • Twelve animals — what fun!
Music
  • Each unit has a preschool learning song (about animals, colors, etc.) and a Bible song, using Sing for Joy CD created by MFW.
Physical Development
  • Gross motor skills — pretend to be an animal, play outside, and more
  • Fine motor skills — squeeze play dough, paint and color, learn finger plays, and more
  • Health — focus on nutrition by enjoying healthy snacks
You may have tangible wealth untold;
Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold.
Richer than I you can never be —
I had a mother who read to me.

Strickland Gillian

This program might be just right for you if:
  • You'd like to spend memory-making time each day with your child — an easy-to-teach Together Time activity (15 minutes), Story Time (books and poems provided), a semi-independent Surprise Time activity, and unstructured Outside Time.
  • You are looking for a flexible, easy-to-use, educationally-sound, character-developing program.
  • You'd love a big stack of read-aloud books, paint, sturdy activity sheets, and educational toys, with daily lessons already planned — all at a great price.
If you have a two-year-old: duck

Consider these educational toys, not in the All Aboard the Animal Train packages, that are safe and educational for two-year-olds — Tall Stacker Pegs and Pegboard and Shape and Color Sorter.)

If you are already homeschooling older children:

The All Aboard the Animal Train Teacher's Manual is very easy to follow, and you may find that an older child would enjoy helping you teach your preschooler. However, another option is to just order our Preschool Educational Toy Package which is designed for those who want a collection of preschool educational toys but not a daily preschool curriculum.

Testimonials

The first time I read through the lessons I started getting teary-eyed … it is such a gift that someone out there had the time and passion to create something so valuable for the rest of us! There are so many values and experiences you want to give to your children, but the pace of life doesn't usually give you the time to think it through and plan and research out all the details. This package puts it all at your fingertips! Fun, exploration, good balance of learning and play, values taught in a relaxed way, and more. Wow. Thank you! It's great!

Elizabeth M.

You have done an amazing job putting together the sweetest things for our little kids. Thank you!

Rebecca H.

I like the simplicity of the activities. I like that the projects are easy and I do not need to buy lots of supplies. I LOVE the books.

I like that this teaches character and it is not overwhelming. I had [a different] curriculum I was going to use, but I am glad to be using this instead. This is much easier and less work, but allows my son to feel like he is doing school. This really does not take too much time. The crafts are easy and the books are all excellent choices.

Magda L.

This curriculum seems to go along well with "habit training"—getting my son used to the idea that he has to follow directions and that I have certain activities preplanned for him. I think this is preparing him well for school in the coming years.

I love the great books included in the curriculum. Such a nice selection of books! It's also a great pace and a lovely amount of time—not too much, no stress, not killing his love of what he's learning. I applaud you for that! Thank you so much!

Katie B.

I like being able to open lesson plans and follow a well thought out program. It is easy for me to adjust a program, but it is much harder for me to invent one. My college training in Science and Engineering did not really prepare me to teach preschool. Thank you for all your hard work because I have more time to spend teaching and engaging my children with less stress and frustration for all of us.

Maegan F.

One thing MFW has done for me is really hold my hand and help me do those things that I desire to do with my kids, but never really have the time to plan and prepare.

Thank you for offering this program. It is giving me the tools and resources to be intentional with developing our relationship and also working godly character traits into her life.

Tina P.

We are just loving your program. :)

My daughter loves all the books and wants to read them over and over throughout the day. :) we give them a huge thumbs up. :)

This program has helped me carve out little bits of time just for my daughter and she really looks forward to this new routine. :) She eagerly runs for her cards and activities. :) It is a huge blessing. :)

Thank you. :)

Leah M.

I just love that the approach with this program is gentle, and yet has really impacted and helped my son's learning in a way that he loves. It takes all the ideas of what a child loves to do, and incorporates it into fun learning units. I have seen this with colors, numbers, Bible stories, and pre-writing skills. I am glad you can create something that is filled with learning skills, and keep it interesting and fun for the child.
