a journal of observations with children guiding with the montessori method
The Work Plan
Monday, November 26, 2012
Things are getting busier here!! Which is always good news:) One of the things that has changed is that I don't really have to change out any materials on the shelves often. They are taken to the traditional Montessori materials. I try to save my material making time for extensions or flat out inspiration.
One of the things that I think I will always do is add some Christmas Spirit to our days. We always have a tree set out to decorate.
I do change up the ornaments to keep the surprise element for the kiddos. This work is done by everyone from the youngest " preschooler" being two to the oldest being fourteen. It is a well received work here.
The collage tray gets transformed to a lot of glittery paper shapes.
Here I just changed out beans for ornaments.
Using tongs to transfer bulbs.
I thought I share this photo too because there's nothing like a new pack of freshly sharpened colored pencils.
