One last post for today…our Montessori work October 26, 2011

I’m almost completely caught up on posts!  I have a couple more to get to, but I’m just going to attempt to get one more post out today.  Bug & Monkey’s week (or two) in review!

After the pumpkin patch, the kids get to do their two favorite works--the first one is scrubbing pumpkins! The kids love sitting on the porch cleaning all of the new pumpkins.

 

Their second favorite work of the year is to hammer nails in pumpkins. This year the older two wanted to make actual designs with their nails as well.

 

Monkey working hard!

 

Jedi and his Frankenstein design

 

Monkey and her face design

 

Bug and Monkey collecting leaves at the park

Their stash of leaves!

Pinning clothespins to foam pumpkins

 

I made a spider web out of pipe cleaners for the kids to put the spider rings on.

 

Monkey threading the spiders on the web

 

Sorting the Halloween rings by shape (skull, spider, bat)

 

Bug working with the fraction skittles

 

Spiders in the sensory bin!

 

Monkey learning to weave using strips of paper

 

And finally.... This is what happens when I give Bug a brand new box of crayons. She loves to break them all and peel them. I probably should have just given her the old ones!
