Montessori Monday

The Practical Life part of Montessori work is all about helping children to learn to do things for themselves, establishing a sense of independence. However, another important aspect of these types of activities are training the hand, with fine motor activities, to be able to write. Josh has not chosen work from this shelf in ages.

So, to spice things up a bit, I am working on developing new works that he "cannot resist"! The first of which is a super cool tea party set like this one. He is through the roof excited to use it and gives us a chance to practice manners, as well as pouring etc...

Please visit Koko's Mama at A Thousand Joys for more Montessori Monday!
