  1. So much lovely, busy, learning!

  2. Great activities! I will have to make a shoe polishing activity for Pinky since her shoes will need some help and I know she will love it! Love the peace table...need to finish ours, too! Have a great week!

  3. What do you use for the wood polishing? It's one thing I haven't done with the kids yet.

    1. Thank you everyone for taking the time to leave a comment! It is not often that I get comments on this blog, you all have made my day!!

      I use Murphys Oil in a eyedropper container that the children have used in other works. Now they know how to control the drops, so it doesn't get messy. I prefer Beeswax but had to use what was on hand. They love the wood polishing work!!

  4. I always love glimpses into the life of your classroom. There's always such great work going on!

  5. What wonderful work, as usual! I'm so glad you link up with Montessori Monday to give us all inspiration! I featured your post at the Living Montessori Now Facebook page:

  6. I LOVE the work you do with peace education! I featured your post and peace corner photo in my post at

  7. I am always amazed how you do it all, I really need you to do a day in the life post. From homeschooling to your Montessori school, how you prepare for the week, etc, etc. I thank Deb for highlighting your peace table, he does look like he is enjoying it. But there is so much more here, wonderful work. Kamilah
