Homeschooling & Special Needs, Inspired by the Montessori Way

Montessori Monday March 14, 2011

Monkey is 4 years 1 month old

The past week was much slower than the weeks before, in part because things were so busy with the family as a whole.  But, Monkey was able to do some work…especially the nature based work (mostly because I teach nature studies for preschoolers at Monkey’s homeschool co-op).

We did a in-depth unit on frogs & toads this past week. Here is one of our favorite books (Uncover Frog), and our guidebook of Ohio amphibians.

Our "life cycle of a frog" display--frogs/tadpoles/eggs in acrylic

Life cycle of a frog craft

Life cycle and frog figurines (I have no idea where the tadpole went...the kids had it when they were working with it, but when I went to take the pictures, it was gone)
