I hope you had a great holiday. We’ve been enjoying family from coast to coast and are in the middle of a month-long visit in San Diego. It’s a nice mid-winter break from the cold weather and snow, so we’re soaking up the sun and getting outside as much as we can while we’re here.
For the beginning of the year at Our Montessori Home, I want to focus on infant and toddler activities as well as the some of the basics of the Montessori philosophy.
Infant/Toddler Montessori Activities
Here’s what you can expect to find in the next month or two:
- Creating a Montessori environment without losing the home
- Setting boundaries in the Montessori home–keeping family first
- Planes of Development & the Readiness of the Child
- How to Present Infant/Toddler Activities
- Explaining your choice to pursue the Montessori philosophy to family and friends
- Setting up an Infant environment
- Setting up a Toddler-friendly environment
- Motor Activities
- Cognitive Activities
- Practical Life Activities
- Sensorial Activities
- Language Activities
- Social Activities
If you don’t have an infant or toddler, don’t worry. I’ll still be posting activities for preschoolers and focusing on making homemade Montessori materials from time to time.
