It was suggested at my Montessori training that we try using real watercolor paper for painting. We decided to give it a try...and what a difference! The results of the paintings are astonishing. We will splurge on fancy paper from now on!
In March we studied ASIA with lots of Asian music and activities! Everyone loved the sushi! Japanese matching cards Chinese paper dolls A basket of Asian objects Thanks Kosei and mom for the sushi snack!
Miss Kari is now offering a "Mini Montessori" class 2 Saturdays a month for ages 0-3. It's a great place for parents and babies to interact together in a prepared Montessori environment. It's an hour (9am-10am) of a little worktime, a little Suzuki baby music, and a little snack. The cost is a small donation to our "Pennies For Peace" jar. Email Miss Kari if you and your child would like to attend and she'll send you the date of the next class.
