Montessori Monday

Idea from Montessori Play and Learn by Lesley Britton.


The Trans Game~

I made this game by filling 3 empty baby food jars. One with water, one with dirt, and one with air! These jars represent the different places transportation occur; air, land, and water. Then, I printed off cards that depict different modes of transportation like these!



All the child needs to do is sort the cards next to each jar into the appropriate type of place for transportation to occur. Make sure to mark the back of the cards with a symbol for self checking!

Very cool. I read that same book a while back, but I don't recall this game. So do you borrow these books or do you own it?

Anyway, my Montessori Monday post, inspired by you is here:

I borrowed them from the library and I took extensive notes. I do own Teaching Montessori in the Home The Preschool Years.
