This is a sequel to my previous post on montessori for toddlers. Some friends requested to see how our shelves with the materials looked like. We were able to cater one room for teaching purpose and this is also my helper’s bedroom with her foldable mattress kept aside in the day.
We have 2 BESTA shelves from Ikea. One for practical works and one for math works.
Last month, we replaced some works with the following materials…
We have 2 sets of 3 containers filled with beans, rice and buttons. These materials can be played as a game of sound matching. Keep one set of 3 containers with you and the child, while you leave the other set of containers in another room. Shake one container and let the child go to the other room to find the matching container and bring it back to you.
The orange colored water is simply water mixed with a bit of food coloring.
