Here is what we have been up to in our Montessori Classroom this week.
This activity is an extension to the Sea World theme. Children are encouraged to draw shells from observation.
There is a story that goes with this activity about the ladybug who did not have any friends. Children make a pass with rice for ladybug to find her dragonfly friend. Children are encouraged to sprinkle the rice within the lines.
Children pour water in the bowls with floating objects and then transfer them from one bowl to another using strainer.

Check out this awesome stuff for extending children’s learning
“This is a well made product. It reminds you of a beach ball but when it arrives you find it is much thicker and more durable than most beach balls. Also, if you are the least bit worried about the print being unclear and hard to read because it’s stamped on an inflatable globe, don’t be. It’s clear as a bell and a wonderful learning tool for little ones. My 4 year old was asking me questions that would be SO much easier to answer if I had a globe yet, I didn’t want to sink a ton of money into a fancy globe. Also, he’s not old enough to have interest in it EVERY day so this was the PERFECT solution.”
