INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY!

What a woman! She has inspired me in my practice, my own education, in parenting and in business. She was a pioneer in education and an inspiration to the world! If I could go back in time to meet her I would! Such an amazing and courageous woman.

I hadn't realised how tiring playing with an object permanence box was!!

Photos from Learn, Create, Play's post 08/08/2021

Great observations! We love how Learn, Create, Play extended the learning.

Photos from Learn, Create, Play's post 08/08/2021

This looks amazing, we love the addition of heading cards. There are some budding artists here experimenting with colour!

Photos from Learn, Create, Play's post 08/08/2021

Just stumbled across this on Facebook! It's so lovely seeing our activities being loved by little ones!

08/08/2021

Win win! When children work independently allowing you to get something done yourself that's got to be a good thing?!

We love seeing our activities in action! little ones busy doing the colour hunt; one of the activities from our colour box.

08/08/2021

Just look at that concentration face! getting stuck into one of the activities from the colours box and learning which primary colours to mix to make secondary colours 🌈

A beautiful setup from using items from last month's colours box 🌈 🥰

ACTIVITIES IN THE SPOTLIGHT!
This month's box is SCIENCE 🧬🧲

Picture 1 - Animate and Inanimate Cards
This is the activity I was introduced to when I did my Montessori training. The concept behind it is to introduce animate and inanimate to give a concrete understanding of the classification of animate and inanimate items.

Picture 2 - Parts of a Flower 3-Part Cards
The idea behind this activity is to teach vocabulary and introduce text linked to flower anatomy.

Picture 3 - Parts of a Tree 3-Part Cards
The aim of this activity is to teach vocabulary and introduce text linked to the parts of a tree.

Picture 4 - Parts of a Flower Reference Sheet
This can be used alongside the 3-part cards or on its own to teach vocabulary and introduce text linked to flower anatomy. It also helps to distinguish the different parts of a flower.

Picture 5 - Parts of a Tree Reference Sheet
This can be used alongside the 3-part cards or on its own to teach vocabulary and introduce text linked to the parts of a tree. It also helps to distinguish the different parts of a tree.

Picture 6 - Magnet
Because Montessori advocated the need to learn from first hand experiences, this is perfect to introduce the concept of magnetism because it is a real magnet!

Picture 7 - Magnetic & Non-magnetic Objects with Heading Cards
Use the magnet in the box, explore with the objects which may or may not be attracted by the magnet and categorise them under the headings.

Picture 8 - Floating & Sinking Objects with Heading Cards
The purpose of this activity is to introduce the concept of floating and sinking. Children can begin to relate the characteristic of floating and sinking to weight and density and further develop categorising objects.

Picture 9 - Cotton Reel, Elastic Bands and Sticks (to make an elastic powered car)
This is a fun activity and a great introduction to kinetic energy and force. The activity also encourages refinement of fine motor skills.

Picture 10 - Propeller & Stick (to make a hand propelled helicopter)
This is another fun Introduction to kinetic energy and force, but with just the use of the hands. In turn this helps to refine fine and gross motor skills.

One of the activities included in this month's box! It's unbelievably simple, but lots of fun; a kaleidoscope! You will need a toilet roll middle and some sticky tape. Decorating the tube is optional. The mirrored card to turn the toilet roll into a kaleidoscope is cut to size and included in the box.

🌈 This activity will help your little one further develop their visual perception of how reflections create symmetry.

ACTIVITY IN ACTION!

I took my four children out on the colour hunt (included in this month's box). All the children got involved, even the eldest who is 17 (the youngest who is 8 months just wanted to eat everything!) It was a great activity we all thoroughly enjoyed!

(The second picture shows the branch we thought was a huge snake in the tree!)
