Our monthly theme in January/February was transportation. I had a lot of fun with this theme, though it was hard to create Montessori style “work” pertaining to planes, trains, and automobiles. What Joey did do was gaining familiarity with the types of transportation, beginning to retrieve objects by name, and discovering how wheels work (no more throwing cars for us!).
Here’s what was on our shelf:
As you can see, not a whole lot of transportation-specific work partly due to Joey’s age. My plan is to do each theme twice a year until Joey’s three. I’m going to to need more ideas and variations, so I’d love to hear any ideas you might have!
