Five Things - I've Enjoyed This Week

Matching Community Workers at How we Montessori (4)

How have you been? We have been busy with school work and lots of arts and creative play. We have been getting of the house at least once a day for exercise and we are incredibly grateful for a backyard and nice weather! Here are a few small things that I've enjoyed this week.

Above Matching Community Workers. Otto (2 yrs) loves learning about community workers. We are using Community Helpers Pocket Cards with some Wooden Model Workers. This is great for language development. It was also initially challenging as the models are not identical to the cards. For example the Doctor on the card is male and the model Doctor is female. The Police Officers are wearing different uniforms. But Otto is still able to match them based on their professions. We also have the 3D Community Worker Set but the wooden set has more options and more detail.

SEE THROUGH EASEL AT HOW WE MONTESSORI (6)

I'm loving this see through easel.  Sometimes Otto uses one side while Otis uses the other side. I want to use it with some paint sticks too. The children can paint paper free and it is a completely different experience to painting on paper. The kids make a huge creative mess on it and Otto also likes to use it for finger painting.

A cute story basket. I have a toddler obsessed with diggers and dump trucks and this book is lovely.

EASTER PLAY DOUGH TRAY AT HOW WE MONTESSORI (2)

An Easter play dough tray. Some cookie cutters, model animals and a few Easter stampers. This little rolling pin is just the right size for Otto's little hands.

Otis (8yrs) is reading this fantastic book The Seed of Compassion: Lessons from the Life and Teachings of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. It is a sweet book about the Dalai Lama.
