Well I finally got picture of my tray for our theme this month! I am very excited about these since they have turned out well (at least I think they did)! Our theme this month is Farms. I chose this for a few reasons. One was that there are alot of easy to read and write words for Bunny to work with. Another reason was that we are planning a field trip to a farm in the area soon! Finally I saw Counting Coconuts farm theme and I fell in love! 🙂 So I ran with it, especially after Bunny said she liked it! 🙂 So here is what our shelves have on them:
(this is a salt and pepper jar, I thought that it would be good practice for salting food. If someone has a better way to teach this let me know!)
Nuts and Bolts
Washing the horse
Open and close basket
Farm Animal Booklet
(Bunny writes the animal name under the sticker)
Part of the Horse
(Montessori Print Shop has these. I LOVE their 3 part cards)
Farm Family Cards
(These fabulous cards were made by Lori at Montessori MOMents! They help teach the names of male, female, and baby animals)
Farm Animal 3 Part Cards
(These are free from Montessori for Everyone)
(I am following the Dwyer Approach as opposed to the Pink, Blue, and Green Series, So everything in this box is with sounds I know she knows.)
( From Counting Coconuts)
I also am in the process of making a grammer farm, but that is a whole other post when I finally get it done! 🙂
Smelling Bottles are new this month!
I am getting my sister to use the Cricket to make me some really sweet farm animals that I am going to put some math problems on. I will do Addition and I think I will introduce subtraction and carrying! I will have to post more on that when I get it!
So that is what we are up to this month! I hope you like it. Let me know if anyone has another idea for some other work! Bunny LOVE new work! Happy Schooling!
