This week was our last class for our homeschool co-op pre-k group this year. Next month we will be having parties and taking field trips and then we will be enjoying our Summer!! We wrapped it up with a learning centers class. This week I had some help and it really made it way more fun! I brought 17 activities, and another mom brought 19 activities. It was great to have so many options. I hope that I can have help again next year.
Before I show you what was on my trays, I want to let you know about an AMAZING resource for new Montessori moms (or old ones), Justmontessori.com. Thanks to Our Montessori Story, I learned about Just Montessori a couple of months ago. She has provided her entire curriculum online for free. I know I *could* make up my own, but hers seems to be perfect for us. It has made my life so much easier just to follow her lead. I still have to gather the materials and put my things together, but I don't have to come up with a plan. So, um, yeah, most of these ideas came from her :).
Sweeping seashell pieces.
Seashell cards and counters.
Land, Air, Water sorting work. From Montessori For Everyone.

Catching water animals with a 'net.'

I found the cutest scrubber and just had to make a tray out of it. It wasn't until the children used the tray that I realized the scrubber was too big for them. Oh well, I found myself a cute new scrubber.
Open and closing tray.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have found some ideas that you can use with your little ones. God Bless!
