As I've said before, I like a blend of Montessori/Waldorf/our own thing. I've started creating little spaces around the house with age-appropriate activities for Lulu. She is big into taking objects out of a container and putting them back in, or into a different one. So I need to come up with more of those activities for her.
Anyway, for now - this is what we have in the learning area - Duplos, little bird house with soft birds that can be put in a hole and taken out the side, some board books (another basket of books is out of the picture to the right), a shape sorter, and a basket of musical intruments:
And I LOVE these soft blocks (below) - these are normally stacked on the other shelf (on the other side of our nature/season table). Lulu is a fan too! :)
In the "kindergarten" realm, I am preparing some more plant-centric activities for the week for Bug. And thinking about ordering the June curriculum from Little Acorn Learning for some more Waldorf ideas. Summertime gets rough here in the Desert - I need all the ideas I can get for keeping us all occupied and happy! :)
