What is happening in Montessori Blogland?

Look, feel, smell, eat.

Otis studying root vegetables

The best thing about learning at home is the flexibility. It's easy for us to go from looking to cutting, cooking and eating. 

Today we took a basket of root vegetables into the study to give us some time to sit, relax and comfortably explore. This is also a wonderful language lesson as I gave him, and he repeated, the name of each vegetable.

Then into the kitchen to make vegetable chips.

Tossed in olive oil with seasoning and baked until brown and crispy. A tasty and nutritious snack and a wonderful learning experience.
