We are Back!! Montessori Monday

We are all doing fine! And we are working!! Thank you for everyone who left those really nice comments about my health. Unfortunately I don't have many pictures of the children working. I wasn't in the picture taking mood. I can tell you that when I take pictures of the children it dosen't affect their work one bit. I think it is a normal thing around here to see me with the camera. I quite often wondered about this picture taking business last week I had a chance to find out.

                          Building a DNA model.

                                               Knobbed Cylinder block.

                                                 Blue Constructive Triangles.

Sandpaper Numbers.

  I took DJ's advice and used the Knobless Cylinder Extension cards and made it a cutting work. The children loved it!! Again the cards can be purchased at

                                                    Addition Strip Board.

      Here are some works on the shelf. Some are the same with a different twist.

                                    Sponge squeezing with a ladybug sponge.

                                                             Nuts and Bolts.

                                                          Pouring water to a line.

                                                         Dry pouring flower beads.

                                                Flower arranging using the clay in the pot.

                                                                 Tonging eggs.

                                                              Scrubbing carrots.

 Practing using a knife. The carrot has velcro between the slices, it gives it a good feel to what cutting is really like.

                   Sorting eggs. This came from Time for Tots.

Counting with one to one correspondence. This printable came from Confessions Of A Homeschooler.

   Another work from Time for Tots. The child uses the stone to match the color of the rabbits' tail.

                                                  Sorting peep erasers.

 Our dirt sensory bin. It has soil, leaves, insects, a scooper,a pot, and our bug vacuum. If you look closely there is a pink butterfly that the child tries to vacuum. This is a fun tool that the children are getting very good at using. Although the season is Spring, it is still very cold here in Michigan. In fact today it is snowing :(
