I have just a short post for tonight. I thought I would share some fun links but I have a post almost ready for tomorrow reviewing a Montessori subscription service - so please check back in tomorrow if that is something you would like to read.
This weekend Meg Hicks and I joined forces on an Instagram account. Come and see us at kylieandmeg!! It's such a fun process. So far I have been taking the pictures and Meg has been writing the captions. I love how expressive Meg is. I am still on Instagram at howwemontessori if you'd like to see what we have been up to on an almost daily basis.
I recently found this absolutely amazing and beautiful Montessori blog Emil and Mathilda - please check it out if you have a toddler, I think you will like it too!
I am interested in learning more about how children move and how this impacts their learning. We have this rocker and we also have an Ikea swing outside. Swinging or rocking - my children love it. This rocker - I think it's from Germany is amazing.
As usual this is a great read at MariaMontessori about some of the interesting things that occur in a Montessori classroom.
I am currently reading a few books in this series. Let me know if you would like a review. I haven't seen them written about or mentioned before so I have been very interested.
My little nephew has just started crawling and pulling himself up on things. It reminds me how useful pull-up bars are - this is a cute post by Nicole on how a pull up bar is working in her home.
Do you have any favourite Montessorish/children's homes? This is an old interview but it's a constant source of inspiration for me.
On a more personal note in the last couple of weeks Otis has been able to buckle up his car seat independently. It's a huge step and it makes getting in and out of the car a breeze. As above he can now also cut his own oranges! All of these tiny steps of independence really add up. I noticed one of his little school friends tying his own shoe laces so perhaps it's time for us to think about laces too!
