Montessori Monday: Full of Practical Life

This week was jam packed with art! I must have a six inch pile.... I didn't get the camera out too much, as I"m trying to create an uninterrupted rhythm to our work period.  We went nuts making charts and surveys about our family's personal preferences.  Bean made one out of the work for North American Animals....what is your favorite?  She can be so organized, she built herself a survey folder.  We've been busy doing food prep and physical skills with practical life!  

Please see my post at Mommy Moment this week about practicing for winter clothing!

Cooperation with orange juicing


Pumpkin, age 3-  squeezing clementines (they are so easy for little hands!)


Bead Scooping.  That muffin tin is actually a glue stick package.


Care of environment, pencil sharpening.  They found it very attractive, even though we have another sharpener in the art area.  


Sand Tray for the letter m.

One more quick puzzle before we go.....!

Making charts and collecting survey information.  Favorite animals and  favorite shades of colors.
Apple Tweezing.  I simply changed the vessels, all that was old is new again.
