Montessori forest animal printables

Do you have a child who adores animals? I know I have 2! They just love learning about different animals, how they behave, and where they live. Y is really interested in understanding how different families function, including animals. If we see a bird outside, he will me, "Where is the bird's mama?" I know [...]

Montessori Hibernation Activities

Halloween Halloween isn't celebrated here [...]

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, [...]

I'm so excited to be starting a new unit study! For the next few weeks, we'll slowly be exploring sharks (and hopefully the ocean more in depth, but we'll see how things go). I've been planning to set these up so long ago, but we just have been so preoccupied that I have yet to [...]
