Growth in the Montessori home at How we Montessori  mushrooms and beans

Otis has been growing mushrooms (and beans) it's - been fascinating to observe the mushroom's entire life cycle.

This is a gorgeous poetry book that we have been enjoying. I Am The Seed That Grew The Tree.

Willow stars at How we Montessori   forest school activity

I noticed this really simple craft at Otto's Forest School class and wanted to make them with the older boys. It's best done with willow which is a little more pliable. But ours worked out well (mostly!), we are calling ours Christmas stars and have them in a jar on our window sill.

We love using open-and-close baskets (a basket with containers that can be open and closed). For a younger child we can use easy to open containers like those with a flip lid and later more difficult containers like jars with screw lids. We like to change the containers fairly regularly, sometimes weekly, to keep it interesting.

Otto training pants at How we Montessori

Otto has been wearing the Grovia training pants but is ready for something easier to get on and off, so we are going to try the Green Sprouts (organic) training pants. Wish us luck!
