    @ Dave + jess – I added the link to the sing along flipchart. The mini objects in the Goodnight Moon sensory tub are little objects I have had growing up and from the kids' toobs of animals. (The yellow chairs are from my Playmobil sets, the comb and bowl from my Strawberry Shortcake dolls…). My parents kept all my things and we visited them over the summer. I had this sensory tub in mind back in July when we were there and went about collecting things:) The wooden moon is from a little book that my mom gave Bear, the Little Old Lady we borrowed from my niece's collection of vintage Fisher Price Little People. The counting bears i found at a consignment sale and there just happened to be counting cats mixed in there:) The bin just came together quite easily:)

    I have a question for you on the all about spelling program for Bear that you have. We are doing All about spelling too, currently in level 1. For now we are around 2-3 weeks into it and my 4 year old is breezing through it. What I've noticed is that there are a lot of dictations as we move along and my daughter can easily do the words with the letter tiles, but I see that the teacher's manual says to write it out. As she is only 4, writing is not perfect, for example she reverses a lot of her letters etc, so gets frustrated. For now we only do the letter tiles, but it kind of gets cumbersome once we get into dictating phrases. One thing is that I could do the dictation using moveable alphabets, but she loves her moveable alphabets and I don't want to turn her off against her love of the work by forcing dictation. For now we do a few sample words and move on to the next Step. How are you guys doing it?

    What a FUN week. You guys got so much done. How fun!! I would love to get some montessori manipulatives for my son, but am not sure where to start or what to get. He is solid in number recognition and one to one matching up to 20. I would like him to recognize (understand) numbers up to 100 and work on simple addition (which we're doing playfully by counting objects). Any suggestions? Thanks!! (we just started Singapore Early Bird Math, which really is a review for him)

    Great ideas! Both my 1 year old and 5 year old love the Scholastic Flip chart. We sing the color and shape songs often. They are catchy little tunes =)

    Thanks for recommending All About Spelling. We are using it with "Strawberry" and she loves it. We decided to go with the Wilson Reading program for "Peter" as it is for kids with Dyslexia. Love all your Montessori activities:)

    Great activities, Julie! The Goodnight Moon sensory bin and counting activity is awesome! I appreciate that you observe which activities interest your children. It's always fascinating how that can vary from child to child and even month to month in the same child! I love your photos, too – and the pink tower and chef photos are too cute! :)Thanks for linking up with Montessori Monday! I featured your post at the Living Montessori Now Facebook page.
