as i have discussed briefly before, i started to introduce birdie to some at home, preschool lessons this year. i have researched several different approaches and i must say that she is loving the montessori method. this week we worked on "button games" (above) using a hodgepodge of buttons and a muffin tin to sort by color. she has also been doing a balance exercise called "walking the line" using simple string or yarn to stress good balance and posture (below.)
birdie is also loving doing arts and crafts with colored paper, cutting and pasting and watercolor painting, and she has been joining in on nature hikes with her big brother and sister. she starts a preschool gymnastics class next week, which we are all very excited about.
life is good here.
