Our Montessori learning space is almost finished, although there are still a few things that need to find new homes. Today the children were able to enjoy using it for the first time.
Aaron hasn’t done any Montessori language work yet, so I decided to quickly whizz through the pink series to review what he already knows. This first activity was only intended to be matching objects to initial letters with the moveable alphabet, but he decided it was too easy and spelled out the whole words.
The orange star was supposed to represent “sun”, but he decided it looked more like a compass!
Little Miss Scruffy worked on the knobbed cylinders and then put them away on the shelf.
It is much easier now for the children to take materials to their rugs, rather than having to carry them through the narrow corridor and around the corner. There is also more space for me or Colin to sit with the children while they work, which is lovely. I’m really liking our new learning space so far!
