Rachel here. My original plan was to update the blog every Friday with what the girls were doing for Montessori, but we already had so much by today that the post would have been astronomical. Here is what we've been up to so far this week.
Grandma snuck this little number home with the girls on Saturday, and we love it! On one side of each block is a letter, and on the other is an object that starts with that letter. Reese had a ball finding the letter sounds she already knew and saying the sound and then the object. VERY CUTE!
This week's letters are "m" and "f." We've spent the last two days working on "m". Reese is doing a GREAT job with her letter sounds. I'm so excited! I can't wait until she really starts to get the hang of it, and we can start doing sound sorts. For art time we made a coffee filter moon (an idea I got from her spring art class). Dab it with a yellow bingo blotter and spray with some water in a squirt bottle, and it gives it a really cool effect. Reese stuck cute little star stickers around it to resemble the night sky.
I have some really fun (well I hope they're fun) tasks on her shelf for tomorrow. This is so exhausting. If she wasn't learning so much and we weren't having fun I may not have the energy to continue. So far though... this is so worth it. :)
