Beginning Readers

Self read books for beginners

Love these self reads!!! I bought them directly from the author a Montessori teacher herself at this years Montessori Conference. The illistrautions reeled me like a fish on a hook! They come in levels of phonetic progression and cute cards to color. Check out to order a set and for great tips on reading the Montessori way.



Way cool right?! We went to the park and magically one of the parents happened to be a fireman. He mentioned it after chatting about how great our boys played together. Before leaving he invited us to use his gear to take pictures. He gave the kids the run down about the special equipment and its purpose and even shared a cool heroic story. It was such a great way for the kids to get a tiny experience on what its like to be a fireman. Thanks to all service members trying to keep the communities safe. You rock!

Just Hanging

Funny how much Zire enjoyed me hanging upside down. He cheered me on as I tried getting my long legs around the bar while hanging for dear life. I like to show him that I like to have fun too, it feels good!! 

" Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed." - Maria Montessori

Lets continue celebrating Independence!! Give your child the opportunity to accomplish a task for themselves today, they crave it. When they are able to do so, these experiences increases their inner confidence, self esteem and belief. This feeling they can only acquire by doing, so let them do!

Here are some simple ideas you can guide them how to do independently:

- Taking clothes on and off.

- Putting on shoes.

- Drying body off after a bath or swim.

- Rubbing lotion or sun block on.

- Letting them help make a snack.

- Brush their own hair and teeth.

- And so on...

All your doing is including them in their daily routine. Remember to be encouraging and put away any preconceived ideas. This provides your child the opportunity to be in control in a healthy self rewarding way.

Drop a line! I would love to hear your experience with implementing independence at home.



The Wiblets

books for toddlers

So I wanted to share our new additions in our home library. I love the theme of these books, they hold great life lessons within the colorful pages.

Zire is self reading now and "Demanding Dudley" has been a great way for him to connect to the good feelings that follow using our manners. I also love that the lesson and illustrations is presented in way he can relate with, being a ''Demanding Dudley" himself sometimes. Its been a helpful source to go back to when his demanding attitudes come out for show.

The book he's reading in the video is "What We Do After School" this book is a awesome sing-along to promote consistency with our home routine after camp (later on school).

Mommy approved!
