Knobless cylinder extension.
Sweeping beans into the square and then sweeping them into the dustpan. She doesn’t actually need the square, but since I have it there for J-jo, she is using it.
Grating cheese for pizza. This mini cheese grater is from Montessori Services.
Montessori Tidbits reminded me about this fun “art” penmanship exercise that is in our Karen Tyler albums. Since Bear is reversing her s and f a lot, I thought this would be a fun way for her to get some repetition. She really enjoyed this. Basically, you take a letter template (I just drew ours. There are many free online – but why use ink when you don’t need to?) and the child traces the outline over and over each time with a different color until the template is filled.
We are going through the series of Grammar lessons. I love Montessori for introduction to grammar as it is very concrete and hands on. Here Bear is working with the Grammar Farm (see Counting Coconuts great post listing many resources for the Grammar Farm) and labeling the nouns on the farm.
She also worked on sorting nouns into Person, Place or Thing, Singular and Plural, and Proper and Common. (These are grammar materials I printed out from Montessori for Learning a long while back.)
