I can hardly believe I'm posting about March activities - can it really be March already? This month, we have plenty of St. Patrick's Day-inspired fun on the shelves. I am looking forward to working with the children with these lessons and showcasing our classroom during our Formal Observations. Throughout this month, I have invited parents to observe our classroom - they will attend in half-hour increments to see firsthand all that happens in our classroom. Without a doubt, they will see these activities in use:
|Practical Life: Dry Transferring Shelves|
|Practical Life: Wet Transferring Shelves|
(Amazing how the color can change everything!)
We'll be making Irish 'good luck' bracelets on sparkly, gold pipe cleaners.
|Threading materials to make...|
|...a beaded rainbow! (Thanks, Montessori Journey!)|
|A fun Opening/Closing variation...|
|...with seven lucky pennies!|
|Paper cutting strips to make Irish flag collages.|
|These 4x6 pieces of oak tag will be used for making the flags. After the child cuts the strips, they can glue the pieces onto the oak tag. It might be fun to tape a small dowel or Popsicle stick for a flagpole...|
|Math: Numbers 11-19|
I wrote the numbers on decorative shamrocks and thought the little clips would be perfect for...
|...hanging them on the line.|
