Montessori on the Go!
Well I dont know about you, but when I have to take the kids to the doctor we seem to sit and sit. I wish I could take some work with us to make the time more productive and fun! Being homeschooled I know just how much work you can get done while waiting! However, most Montessori work requires taking a suitcase! 😉 So a friend of mine gave me some scrabble tiles and they were sitting around (waiting for me to do a project with), and I realized that I could let Bunny use them as a moveable alphabet! It was small, and very portable! It was awesome! Bunny and I made words and we even played the command game (I made words like “hop” and “skip” and she read them and did the action)! It was a great way to pass the time and to learn at the same time! Not knowing how long it would take at the doctors, I also tossed a set of Bead Stairs in a small container. My plan was to play addition with her. So there we have it! Montessori on the go! It is a great way to occupy those moments that we are not doing anything! Here are some pictures of our work!

great idea! 🙂 We spend so much time waiting at our doctor’s office this would be a fun activity

Those scrabble tiles are perfect for on-the-go learning! I bet it made the wait much more pleasant for everyone.

Great idea Stephanie. Bunny is advancing quickly with her spelling and writing. So fun to see!

Great ideas. I usually bring books in my purse and we read those. We do mental math games in the car and practice skip counting. Mostly all oral schooling in waiting situations.
