montessori at home

A few days late I know, but I didn't want to become too predictable! We've just been so busy!

This week we looked at writing letters, as Theo's become quite obsessed with it lately, especially the letters for his name. So I set up a little copy and trace sort of activity and used some different textures, flour and lentils for him to draw in.

He picked it up really quickly, and I used alphabet flashcards randomly selected for him to copy. I would ask him what the letter was, and then to draw it. Theo can recognise all the upper case letters, but struggles with the lower case, so it was a good opportunity to focus on them.

It was a very fun, albeit very messy activity, that ended with us making hand and footprints in the flour, which then may have ended up all over the floor...
