Works On The Toddlers' Shelf

I have two toddlers who are still in the smaller room patiently learning at their own pace before joining the rest of us in our daily montessori activities. I also now have an infant!!  It has been awhile since we have had the pleasure of being in the company of cooing. I haven't set up anything specifically for our infant, but it is going to happen soon and I will be sure to post about some of his activities. Our infant is 4 months, so we have been doing a lot of bonding during feeding and diapering time. I can tell you that he loves to observe, listen to music, and he only stops talking when he is sleep. For the todddlers I have added the following works to their shelves this week.

                                        Transferring eggs using whole hand.

                                     Pouring buttons.

                                Sticking bunnies in the holes exercising finger grasp.

                                    Spooning pom poms.

 Sorting by color. Sorting by sound or no sound I first saw this work on the blog Chasing Cherrios.

  Matching picture to object with animals. The cards are also touch and feel cards.

                    The Farm. Learning the names of objects known on a farm.

                           Geometric Stacker. This work is a lot harder than it looks!!




  1. welcome back! and I agree, that stacker is hard. My 3 year old (well, 3 on Thursday) still has to really focus to get the middle one correct.

  2. You activities are great! I love them. I cant wait to see what other ideas you come up with for the baby! I have been wanting to ask if you have a school or if it is more of a daycare? Do you do this in your house? I was just wondering! :)

  3. Thank you so much Aly:)

    Stephanie I operate a licensed group day care in my home. I hope to one day become a certified montessori guide and have a school for children whose parents may not be able to afford the high cost of a montessori education.
