Can It Be Montessori Monday??

I have had this particular Montessori Monday post planned for weeks now!  I set everything up the last week of January, right before we found out we had to move, so we didn't really get to take them out until this week.  With so many age ranges I try to rotate practical life, sensorial, art, and other shelf works at least monthly since I can't have something out for everyone all the time.  (There just isn't enough space.)

Cutting & Gluing Hearts
I try to always have something that involves cutting and gluing, even if it is just magazine collage.  
Fine motor practice for Caleb and Kylee and art for Aidan.   







Heart Mirror
Self portraits for the oldest three.
Lots of funny faces for the younger two.





Flower Arranging
Fine motor for Logan
Design for Kylee.





Materials Notes:  Heart shaped mirror is from IKEA, although I saw something similar in Target's dollar spot.  I buy my fake flowers at the dollar store and cut them apart into single stems so that I can have a variety of colors and styles.

Ah! We love flower arranging! We add an additional component with using sand in our vases (they look similar to yours :-)) My most recent slip in of this particular activity was in April: http://preschoollearning.blogspot.com/2012/04/flowers.html
