It's Spring - On Our Nature Table!

Nature Table at How we Montessori #2

Otis and I have been working on our spring nature table. It's fluid and it changes daily! The process has been child led, I've made plenty of suggestions but Otis has put the table together. Spring is fantastic for learning about life cycles of plants and animals. Spring is full of colour and life and I think our nature table reflects that. The nature table provides the perfect opportunity to bring learning from outside to inside! We are doing lots of learning about birds, feathers, nests, butterflies, bees and flowers.

"The wind told the grasses,  

and the grasses told the trees.

The trees told the bushes, 

and the bushes told the bees. 

The bees told the robin, 

and the robin sang out clear:

Wake up! Wake up! 

Spring is here!"

"The fuzzy caterpillar,

curled upon a leaf.

Spun her little chrysalis,

and then fell asleep.

While she was sleeping,

she dreamed that she could fly. 

And later when she woke up, 

she was a butterfly!"

I've labelled lots of the items for Otis. His reading is really developing and I want to provide a language rich environment. We also have a spring themed book basket next to the nature table.

This nature table is definitely for touching and playing. Otis loves this little play scene above.
