In Nido 1, when it's 93 degrees in October, we play Autumn Jazz, strip down to our diapers, and pretend that the weather is enjoyable 👍🏼🍂🎷

I love watching this guy's concentration and development of skill--ill judgement on my part for not choosing a vase with a wider mouth 🙈😬 #learningthroughexperience 🌼 🌼 🌼 🌼 After he completed this simple flower arranging task we carried the vase to a shelf in the diapering area to be looked at by the rest of the class. #beautyintheenvironment #sensitiveperiod #flowerarranging #montessoritoddleractivities @daverog @helenkrogers
One of my favorite experiences as an Infant Caregiver in Montessori is watching this little community evolve so uniquely and independently. These children have created their own form of communication and interaction that we as adults simply can't understand or really be a part of. We simply get to sit back and enjoy 〰🙏🏼〰
We've been practicing our 10 Little Natives song to share with you all on our Feast next Friday! My heart is smiling as they sing this all by themselves!
Jacob's first lesson with land air and water. He wanted to do it all by himself and he did it so well.
"Children of this age are urged by the laws of their nature to find active experiences in the world about them. For this they use their hands, and not only for practical purposes, but also for acquiring knowledge. If we leave children free in this new kind of environment that we have provided, they give us quite an unexpected impression of their nature and abilities. They seem to be happier, and they have such deep interests that they can work for long periods of time without fatigue. As a result, their minds seem to open out and they become eager for knowledge." - Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind
Sometimes waiting for snack can be difficult. Other times you have a helpful friend to pass you snacks through the gate 👌🏼
