We are a big fan of Montessori-inspired unit studies. It is such a fun, hands-on way to learn about new concepts!
Few months back we went on a fun beach holiday, and i had picked up packet full of gorgeous,lovely sea shells. We used it for few of our works here and there, but for most of the time they just were sitting idle in my Montessori supply cabinet. So i thought of creating a unit study focused on sea shells, and I am so glad I did, because my son has been having so much fun!
Let me quickly share with you the activities on his Montessori shelf. I will also link up my video at the end, so that you can have a closer look at the activities 🙂
1. Practical life: Dry and wet pouring works. I have started introducing a few glass cutlery on my son’s shelf (ONLY under my supervision). I was reluctant at the beginning, but i wanted to see how he could ‘handle’ it.
So far he is doing a wonderful task of carefully holding the glass wares. I am so proud of this little boy who is all of 30 months! I am so grateful to Dr. Montessori and her thought process behind every work and philosophy that she introduced to us.
