Montessori Monday~ The Black Strip!
Well today we did the follow ups from Great Lesson Two, the black strip! I had planned to do the third great lesson, but then I knew that doing the black strip with the kids was just too good to pass up! They LOVED it! I told the story and unrolled it in the classroom, then we took it outside! I think that they were really impressed with how long it really is and how very little time that humans have been here! They were SO excited to stretch it all out down the sidewalk and I know that it left an impression! The older girls even decided that they wanted to measure how many of their feet long it was ( 109 in you were wondering). I also did a quick presentation on the Clock of Eras. This wasnt so exciting, but after our presentation, they all did get to work! However, what they did was mostly other Montessori work! 🙂 I did quite a few presentations on some of the other works in the classroom and it was fun!

I’m so glad I delayed the start of our great lessons by two weeks so that we could watch you all do everything first! It helps keep me inspired to do the prep when I get to read your posts about it. We did the frist great lesson and it was super 🙂 I just wish I wasn’t bogged down in album reviews so I could actually post about it! Thanks for sharing!

Ohhhh…I cant wait to see how your lesson went! It is fun to see how other people do it! I love that we get to repeate everything each year! It helps me feel like if I did something little off this year, next year I can change it! I’m glad you stopped over! Happy Schooling!

I’ve a question for you, where did you get the black ribbon for this presentation. I am trying a little DIY here and I dont want to spend $50 on the black strip, so could you tell me where I can get 109 feet for black ribbon for really cheap?!!
