Montessori Fruit Peeling and Cutting
In this learning set up, work with your preschooler on both peeling and slicing fruit. Plus, tie in a great piece of literature featuring fruit!
What I love about the Montessori method, which I'm learning more about, is the simplicity it lends to learning. You can do montessori preschool activities in your own home. They are practical and essential for our babies.
In this learning activity, I wanted my baby to practice the everyday skill of peeling and slicing fruit. (This is a no brainer, really.) Montessori encourages us to teach our babies everyday tasks.
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?
I'm learning more about Montessori methods and I'm really liking what I see. I decided earlier this school year that we would set out to do a Montessori type preschool with our youngest and I thought I'd share with you some of the ways we've been implementing the Montessori methods through our preschool at home. Today, my post is about setting up a Montessori type space.
We're studying animals in anticipation of our upcoming visit to the big zoo! This will be the first time for both my babies to visit a large scale zoo. We thought they'd enjoy some animal exploration before we go so they'll have some background and it won't be so overwhelming. I added some wild animal books into our preschool Montessori area in our living room to employ curiosity and I also made these quick little picture cars. I wanted to share my cards with you so you can use them with your kiddos as well.
