Barefoot in Suburbia

Homeschooling & Special Needs, Inspired by the Montessori Way

Montessori Monday September 6, 2011

Bitty Bug is 2 years 8 months old.  Monkey is 4 years 7 months old.

Here is the weekly review of the work Bug & Monkey did in the Montessori room.

Some butterflies for the kids to observe

 

The "please touch" table for the next couple weeks (there are also butterflies under glass for them to observe). On our main level, we raised some butterflies from caterpillars, so the kids also witnessed the life cycle in person.
