Another idea from "My Montessori Journey"
In the beginning of the month I got the idea of "Matching snowflakes" from My Montessori journey and added into my classroom activities, the children loved so much that with "Valentines Day" coming I decided to design this "Heart Matching" activity and share with all of you!
I want to thank u all for the wonderful ideas that u have and for sharing.

Every year we have an Art Show at school, these are some of the children’s works from last year! I also posted the Very Hungry Caterpillar long poster that I made to put in our library. Besides teaching the primary class, I also teach Art Appreciation twice a month and I love teaching about the famous painters to the children, last year they learned about the Art of Eric Carle, Vincent Van Gogh, Keith Haring and many other artists. Here is a few of them!
We are on holiday till the 5th, so no school photos! I am preparing some new materials for the classroom! Will share with you all later!
Last, I want to thank you all for the visit! Let me know who you are and how you found my blog! Are you Montessori Teachers?

More Practical Life Activities
Pouring salt

Garlic crusher/grinder
Children will be eager for a “turn” making cracker crumbles. The rotary handle moves smoothly, workings are visible. Safe (no blade) and easy to use. We crush/ground crackers, the children loves to eat the cracker crumbles.

Bouncy Whisk
This whisk relies on a bouncing motion that’s very different from circular whisking. Equally efficient for whipping eggs and cream, and for having fun making soap bubbles.
