Practical Life - Peg dinosaurPeg dinosaur and thought it would be exactly the kind of thing P would enjoy, since she loves dinosaurs. However, we have recently started watching The Land before Time and P decided that actually she wanted a long necked dinosaur so she allowed me to give this activity to J.
Sensorial - Felt shapes
Sensorial - Smelling bottles
When I went to get out some of the activities the girls had previously used, P asked for these specifically. Both P and J love these smelling bottles, and this time when I showed P how they worked, she was able to match up the smells in the different bottles (she's nearly 3 1/2). It was great to see the development in her abilities.
Language - 'P' basket
This contains all the things that were in it last time, all objects that start with the sound 'p'. This time they are also joined by two lovely poi, made by my very good friend Kirsty for the girls.use the poi (I am pretty useless at the poi, so I could only show them the very basics of how poi work, but they were satisfied enough to wander around the house randomly whacking themselves and other things with the poi).
Language - Dominoes
P has a beautiful set of dominoes that she got for her birthday, so I put them into a basket (for easy access), for her to use as a matching game, or to play with.
I've put these under language, because all the Montessori blogs I read have matching activities as a language one, although I'm not exactly sure why.
