Now that May is almost upon us, we see the full beauty of spring everywhere. Since many of us donât take enough time to stop and smell the roses, letâs make an exception, starting now.
May is the perfect month to present lessons about flowers. Your study doesnât have to be all or nothing. Design your lesson plans, using a cross-curricular approach that involves Montessori practical life exercises, science, art, and other disciplines. You can select which of the following resources below will fit your childâs individual interests.
Make May Memorable with Flowers https://montessori21stcentury.wordpress.com/2013/04/29/making-may-memorable-with-flowers/
is full of Montessori inspired ideas for crafts, Mother's Day gifts, flower arranging, starting a flower garden, plus flower-themed Montessori sensory and practical life exercises. This post contains many art related lesson planning ideas, as well.
My hope is that the collection of resources listed in this post will make May 2013 a month of memorable learning and giving. :-)
