Montessori Halloween Activities- Bats 3 Part Cards

When it comes to Montessori Halloween Activities, I tend to focus on materials that can be used to create related activities, but not 100% Halloween-y. I like to explore related topics like learning about spiders, the human body, and even bats for Halloween! It's fun, related, but also based on reality. Halloween Halloween isn't celebrated here [...]

Montessori Russia Activities and Printables

I'm so excited to be sharing a new thematic unit with you! Today, I am sharing our Montessori Russia activities and printables! This is a theme dear to my heart because this is where I was born.

Art Projects for Kids: Montessori Renoir Printables and Activities

Something Y and I don't do nearly enough of is exploring art and artists. Now that the 12 months of Montessori theme is fine arts, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to do a small artist study. Y really loves to paint so teaching him specifically about a painting technique seemed like a fun [...]

Books for kids: sharks!

Finding the right books for kids can be a challenge, at least for me. Y is currently four and a half years old (seriously where did those years go?!), and is so inquisitive, but gets bored easily. Hence the challenge when it comes to kids books - I need to find something that is stimulating, [...]

Parts of a shark cards

We have really been digging deep into our Montessori inspired shark unit! Y has been learning a lot about sharks, including the different parts of a shark.

Green bean life cycle printables

We have recently started preparing out garden for spring. Because we are still (yes, still!) working on our home, our backyard is still home to never ending construction materials. So we started working on the front yard. While, it's not the ideal place to plant our veggies, we did start. Y is just so enthusiastic [...]
