I've been relishing my time at the annual American Montessori Society conference in Dallas, TX and forgot to post last week's photos!  Actually, most of them are from the previous week because we had yet another snow day and a teacher workday last week.  In any case, there are some interesting pictures of activities from around the classroom.

Making shamrock shapes by stamping green peppers - so simple, but the children loved this!

Drawing flags of the world and writing the names of the countries.

'Shamrocks and Lucky Pennies' for a Cards and Counters variation.

Exploring with the Pink Tower.

Paring the sides of Geometric Solids.

Reading practice with the Vowel Tree.

Practicing letter recognition and sounds with the Language Step Board.

Making small arrangements of flowers for our classroom.  

Tracing shapes for a sensorial experience with the Geometric Demonstration Tray.

  2. Ooooh, loving the timeline of seasons!

    It's hard to believe your class is already rounding into the end of the school year! So much great work has been completed, it's so much fun for me to pop in here to see their progress.

  3. Thanks, Heather. I too, was just thinking, "How can we be coming into the home stretch?"
