Montessori has come to my attention a lot recently through my cousins home schooling ethos and my own research into the theory behind the education. I am therefore delighted to be hosting this post by Emma Lawson suggesting ideas of how to incorporate Montessori style activities into your daily routine with your child(ren).
The Montessori approach to learning is envisaged in such a way that a child is well prepared for lifelong learning. Getting the most out of one’s education entails a lot of diligence and it is best to start preparing kids as early as possible. There are numerous activities that stem from the Montessori approach, which can be used at home so as to advance your child’s learning.
To celebrate World Book Day, I have compiled a list of J’s 15 favourite books. J loves to read! We spend more time reading to him than he plays with toys. When we aren’t reading to him he likes to look at the pictures himself. J particularly loves animals and lift the flap books as well as books that make a noise and he enjoys sharing his food and drink with the animals in the books. J’s love of reading means that we need plenty of reading material (partly to stop me getting bored!) so I have combed libraries, preloved baby sales, car boot sales and bookshops looking for the best books for him and these are his favourites.
