Let's Learn About Weather!
Learning about weather is so "cool"! No, really, it's the hottest new thing. No, really. Okay, enough jokes.
Spring is a great time to study weather! The weather changes so frequently during the months of March through May and so I wanted our weather study to span a couple months time.
For my first grader, I wanted her to:
-discover the types of clouds
-read about weather instruments
-add to her observational knowledge about different types of weather
Montessori Nature Jars
I like to bring the outdoors in and so do my babies.
They're always picking flowers -even in places they shouldn't. Haha!
So, my preschooler and I recently put together some nature jars full of things she found around our own backyard!
These are a great addition to your nature area or your Montessori area.
Plus, they're practically free to make. Ready to explore some nature up close with your little one?
Spring has sprung a seed study at our home and not only have we been reading tons of books about seeds, plants, stems, flowers, roots and fruits, we're making art with seeds! I know, crazy, right? Well, it turns out your little ones can have a lot of fun making art with seeds. All you need are a few things.
It's March and of course, everyone thinks of rainbows! We had a lot of fun painting our rainbows with cotton balls. It is a little out of the ordinary to use cotton balls, but I'm trying to be more thoughtful of developing my preschooler's fine motor skills. This rainbow art I'm going to share with you today has a 3 fold objective: fine motor skill development, learning colors, and seasonal art!
We're finally finishing up our in-depth caterpillar/butterfly study and this is the last free download from the study! I loved making these butterfly exploration cards! They turned out to be useful in so many ways. You can download them for free at the bottom of my post! Enjoy!
When the first signs of spring arrive, I just get so excited! I love gardening season and am learning new things every year. Getting your children involved in growing a veggie garden is a great way to watch science in action. It doesn't have to be complicated either. Using egg cartons is a great way to start seeds and help your babies participate in the process.
