    We have telepathy or something because just last night I wrote a post on conversational math. It's as if you read my mind! :)We used to use a routine chart with photos of JC brushing teeth, eating breakfast, etc. She's always distinguished night and day and talked about it early. And she STILL asks about it daily…"Mommy, is it afternoon yet?" "What is evening?" We've gotten into AM and PM discussions and my husband has taken it even further about talking about time through the genealogy. It came up when talking about Independence Day and she asked if the people were still living. There's so much you can talk about time…We also have a mini calendar where I taped a holiday photo for each month. And then there's the yearly photo album of JC every new year. Well, gotta go…it's TIME for lunch with friends!

    It's a very nice chart! We talk about time all the time, excuse the pun. Interestingly, Anna still thinks that whatever happened before her "quiet time" becomes yesterday and just now starts to get a better understanding when every day begins or ends. It always cracks me up when she makes outlandish remarks like, "I really slept! I slept for 10 pm hours!" after coming back down 5 minutes after we put her to bed. At least she is not measuring time in inches like before.

    This is a great idea and something I'd like to try with L. She is good with tomorrow but anything that happened in the recent past and not today happened yesterday. If it happened a really long time ago then it happened in her "old house".

    Great idea for teaching about time and also for establishing healthy routines! I featured your photo and post in my Montessori-Inspired Dental Health Unit at http://livingmontessorinow.com/2012/02/23/montess
