This week we continued our Montessori through May lessons, here's the story so far-
Day 19- explore different textures. Using what we had in the home I set up a range of items that Miss Three could touch and handle exploring their texture. Soft, hard, fluffy, rough, smooth, bumpy, abrasive, and furry.
then we explored toys.... pulling out her softies we began exploring their fabrics and textiles used to make the toy and their clothing/detail noticing their different textures.
|Day 18 + 20 Dress yourself and dance to music (with her dad)|
|Day 24- Get dirty.|
|Day 22- explore colours.|
Using clear plastic shapes we explored blending colours and what happens when colours are mixed. Later paints were used to mix primary colours together to make other colours and shades. Water colours are used a lot to paint and create a base to Miss Three's craft pieces.
|Day 8- revisited "Walk the line". Miss Three often practises this when l am|
busy in the kitchen her co-ordination is improving over time along with her confidence.
|Day 25- Fold a tea towel and then we practised writing after having a snack.|
|Day 27- talk about big and small. We explored small and big sponges, |
washing brushes as we washed the dishes.
How cutlery, plates and containers were different sizes.
|Day 26- Wash the dishes. |
|Day 21- Slice a banana with a butter knife|
|Day 29- Hang out washing. Sorting socks, organising items of clothing and using pegs.|
|Day 18- dress yourself + Day 30- put on socks. Miss Three already puts on shoes and |
socks regularly so the lesson was to practise putting on winter tights.
She did a fantastic job and needed little help.
|Day 31- Sweep the floor. A lesson l hope becomes a regular practise.|
|Day 22 revisited- collecting leaves and exploring nature, her surroundings and colour|
