Montessori Monday

Generally, this is led by Barbara at but it appears she's out of town with family today. But, I had this prepared and, for a certain reason that will become obvious soon, I wanted to make sure I posted this today.

One of the Montessori ideas I have the hardest time implementing is teaching little hands to use "fragile" grown-up items (like real plates, glass glasses, and the like) through training, explanation, and practice with "the real thing". Having so few nice things, I'm so so so paranoid about it by habit. But, there's been one neat benefit of letting go of those fears.

Here's to hoping we can learn to continue this practice with equally successful results!
