Currently, we are working on several language lessons. We are working pet animals, primary colors, and the names of family members and classmates.
Montessori lessons are designed with extensions to accommodate varying levels of development or understanding.
Chase and Ryan enjoyed getting to paint this week. Painting is an extension of our color language lesson, as well as an opportunity for sensorial exploration and to promote fine motor skills. It sounds a bit messy, but that typically means it’s more fun.
I have introduced a post and rings for the children. If there is something new in our classroom they are going to find it! The post and rings also promotes fine motor skills, and a sense of accomplishment. The extension to this work is the ability to introduce a smaller ring, when the child has more refined fine motor skills.
