Well…today was not how I planned.
So today was one of those days that just didn’t go as planned! Sometimes you just have to know when to quite. School work was not a good idea. We did try it, but no was able to concentrate, so we just let it go today. I don’t know if that is something that is a good idea, but sometimes it preserves the sanity of the mommy and the fire of learning in the kids! 🙂 We were trying to talk about the days of the week, but short of a couple of songs, it was not fun for anyone. Bunny just doesn’t want to talk about this. Its moments like this that I really feel like I need more information and training in Montessori to know what I need to be doing. Do I let it go totally and move on ( I mean she will pick it up as we work on our daily calender) or do I try new activities tomorrow? If there are any thoughts on this, please let me know.
On the plus side, Pup has been working with the cylinder blocks with great concentration and she even is playing with the Pink Tower (no one else up to this point has even shown interest in it). She is also LOVING her winter dressing basket! I think that I will have to make a new one each month. She seems to really like the “dressing up” aspect of it!
Bunny has been creating alot with paper still! She thought of rolling it up to make some 3D thing. If I let her create, she will go for hours! She also did some botany puzzles ( I gave them to her for Christmas and she loves them. I dont have the control charts out for them yet, I will bring those out later). She also cleaned her room, and cleaned all the baseboards yesterday.
So that is what we are up to right now! Let me know what you think or if you have ideas! I love comments! 🙂
