And finally, the four-year-old's boxes. Trickle-down homeschooling is not this kid's only choice these days, thank goodness.
Feel and Find by Guidecraft, a classic Montessori-style preschool activity.
The letter of the week, with a printable book from Enchanted Learning.
We've had these sorting bears and pattern cards since O was in preschool. So glad M is getting use from them now!
Another classic Montessori-style preschool activity. I printed and laminated a twelve-part color wheel on cardstock, colored in one side each of twelve clothespins with Prismacolor markers, et voila! a great sorting activity that strengthens the oh-so-important pincer grasp.
Reading time with Mom: Our Earth, by Anne Rockwell.
Did I mention the letter of the week was A? ☺ This activity required some help, as each sticker has a very specific spot on which to, ehm, land.
I wasn't as ready with the camera during group time as I would have liked this week, but here is one I thought to catch (as we didn't save the bisected spheres), a science activity from Earth Logic: Our Dynamic Earth, plus the control cards from a Montessori card set, which is just a small sample of the many free resources at Montessori Materials.
I've got tomorrow's boxes all ready to go--hopefully I'll remember to take some photos as the week rolls on.
