Montessori Monday

We had a very good work week last week. We got a rhythm that is going really well. I am praying that it stays this way. Here are the pictures of the children while they are working.

  Using pincer grasp transfering the beads to the suction cups.

                                Practicing coloring in the lines.


                                        Polishing silver.

                                       Sandpaper letters.

                                        Golden bead work.

                           Using a "iron" to practice the motions.

                                          Folding napkins.

                      Moveable alphabet with pink series work.

                           Learning to care for plants.

                                          Number Rods..

                                            Presidential Work
This basket contains information cards about our Presidents, the First Lady, branches of government, money  and the White House. Older children will find this fact information interesting and may lead to later research work. Also there is a picture to picture matching work.

There are four groups, three sets have 11 matching pictures and one set has 10. At the beginning level the child will work with only one set at a time.

This is an example of how the work will look matched correctly. There is also information on the back of each card about the President. The picture matching I have introduced to both the preschoolers and the toddlers and they did a fantastic job matching. Some even asked me to read some of the information on the back.
                            The information cards.
