Our New Friends!

Yesterday I had the joy of watching two sweet kiddos. They are going to be joining us a few days a week for the next couple of months. Bug is almost 3 years old, and Tadpole is just 1. So needless to say this has altered my days and my classroom a bit, but I think it will be worth it. I had a lot of fun watching Bug start exploring our Montessori room, and I was amazed at how quickly she wanted to do work. She repeated several of the polishing works, and she also loved to play hopscotch. So I need to find thing with alot of movement for her to do.I also presented her with the Pink Tower. She put it together her own way, but she seemed drawn to it, so I’m sure that she will correct this on her own. If anyone has any ideas, I would love to hear them!

Tadpole is one and I didn’t realized that my house had become less baby proof as Pup has gotten older! 🙂 It has been my job this evening to make sure that I have everything ready for him to be mobile tomorrow! He is very interested in crawling everywhere and looking at everything! I also need to observe him more  tomorrow to see where his main interest seem to be. I have also been combing the internet looking for some good Montessori ideas for an Infant. Again, if anyone has any good ideas I would love to hear them! 🙂 So far I have made a couple of shelves in our classroom with things I think he may like, and I have made a few treasure basket. I think it will all work out really well. I just need to stay on my toes and keep doing some research. More about how this is going later! 🙂
