The Work Plan

Toddler Tuesday

   The toddlers have been very patient with the rearranging of spaces. Some were frustrated at times when they went to find certain things on the shelf and could not find them right away. So we went over the school area from corner to corner naming things and finding out where the items are now being kept. So language was a heavy subject. A lot of prepositional phrases were used and a lot of games were played like "Where is the___" They enjoyed this and it helped them to remember where things belong. Change was good it added flavor to the everyday routine and allowed natural learning to occur. Not really too many pictures to show their actual montessori works, but I will share what I have.

Practicing the sound C makes while making the dots in the circle. This was also a fun hand eye coordination to be able to dot the marker in the circle.

Sponge squeezing the Island landform . This work idea came from Karen Tylers' Album at Worldwide Montessori. The children loved this work and now they name the landform.

Exploring the broom and dustpan she sees everybody using.

Independently working on putting on her own shoes. This was very rewarding for them. They realized that we could all go outside and play sooner when they didn't have to wait for Miss R and me to put on their shoes.

Outside Fun

                                Overall I feel that we had a well rounded week, and looking forward to more real life learning experiences. To see other toddler activities pop over to One Hook Wonder.


  1. Love your new materials! I wish I grew up going to your academy!! lol Miss you all!

  2. Thanks for linking up to Toddler Tuesday! Pita Pocket has been practicing at putting his own shoes on as well. Love the sponge squeezing! :)

  3. Hi I enjoy seeing all the "work" these toddlers have available to them, however I am a bit curios to know how does the primary teacher feel about all these lessons, taking place before the are in a primary.

    Thank you,
