On The Shelves:Montessori Monday

The Dot Game. The Printable came from Montessori Print Shop.

                  Equivalent Fraction Concentration.

 Math story problems with a Christmas theme. I found this work at teachers pay teachers website, authored by Shelly Gray. I did try to link to this but was unsuccessful.

Parts of The Sailing Ship, this also came from Montessori Print Shop.

Following DJ's interest to work with tools I purchased this Pirate Ship kit from Lowes. It is a Build to Grow product, love the directions that come along with the kit.

Ken fell in love with Fables so she will be doing some reseach on Aesop and doing a study on the fable "The Lion And The Mouse. Here are some of the books she will be using.                                                           

 Some printables I found to help guide her along the way.

As part of her study she will be creating the mask of the lion, and the mouse. The materials,she plans to stroytell her report.

DJ will be researching Snakes. He really has a strong interest in learning more about snakes. Here are some books and printables he will be using.

 I prepunched some paper and felt for them to make some covers for their reports, or for books that they want to write .                                                                        

  Another cultural work from Montessori Print Shop. I love the vocabulary and it stumped them to learn that Venomous isn't the same as Poisonous when I asked them if they could tell me the difference. The bowl on the tray contains examples of  venomous animals.
 I am linking this post to Montessori Monday hosted by One Hook Wonder and Living Montessori Now.                                                                          


  1. Great ship activity, my boys would love that!

  2. Oh by the way, what type of hole puncher do you use to punch through felt?

  3. NoorJanan Homeschool- I am glad you stopped by and left a comment, I so enjoy reading them. I picked up the one hole puncher from my grandfathers' house. When he moved he left somethings and this was one of them. They just don't make things like they use to.

  4. no they don't:) I am glad you have it, the holes are perfect!

  5. You have such fun, thorough lessons!! Thanks for sharing!
