Montessori: care of environment

MAKING A HEALTHY SNACK

With guidance I let James choose some things for a snack. His selection was very good. He chose cottage cheese, berries and pumpkin seed, flax granola. I admit I only had to remind him we recently bought some new granola. These were all his choices.

I helped James select some measuring cups for portion control, with a little math on the side. James got a bowl and spoon.

Half a cup of cottage cheese.

One third of a cup of berries. Yes, he did sample them first.

Science: Parts of a flower

James seems to be quite good at drawing. I demonstrate how to draw something part by part and he copies my drawings. Today we decided to draw the parts of a flower.
