So I’ve sadly been neglecting things here…and so we’re already to the August. This is probably the only August post I’ll get around to…so in short here’s August.
Montessori: I’m now an intern. Yay! I have an official career for the first time in my life. It’s pretty sweet actually. Not sure how long I’ll do this but for right now it’s a good thing and I’m pleased, that is when I’m not mostly tired –which considering this weekend is WAY too short the tired is a legit feeling.
I got to set up the practical life area mostly by myself–which means I got to create lots of works for the kids to do. This is called grasping. When you’re 3 yrs old it’s pretty neat-o.
This is the sponge squeezing work. You transfer water with the sponge from one side of the bowl to the other. This is actually a work that I find very therapeutic even at my age.
And here are all the works I assembled…grasping, scooping, spooning, dry-pouring, sponge squeezing, liquid pouring, the ever popular tong & marble work, and the super popular table setting work and of course lacing.
And the place where I’ve spent a lot of time…
It’s a pleasant enough place to spend’s one day.
