Vito is 40 months old.
If you read my post on the 12 Months More of Montessori for Earth Science, Vito and I will be working on animal habitats. We tried this before, in its simplest form when Vito was still a toddler and I decided to move forward into a more abstract approach (with a little sensorial) now that Vito is older. In this post, I’m going to share the learning materials the boys are using and the books to go along with our activities.

Vito is 40 months old.
In line with our Earth Science activities, I decided to introduce Vito to land and water forms using the Montessori Sandpaper Land & Water Form Cards and the Safari Toob vehicles. I came up with this idea because a few weeks ago, Vito was really hooked with our land, water and air transportation figures from Safari Toobs.

Vito is 39 months old.
This month, I’m helping Vito explore the Asia continent . We’ve started continent study last year, which was followed by an exploration of the penguins in Antarctica. We occasionally look at Mapsand work on the continent puzzle, and based on my observation, Vito is ready to learn Asia.

We are exploring the world of penguins this month and Antarctica! Materials here are a mixture of old and new (some were Mavi’s). There’s no timeline for this unit, we’ll do this spontaneously all throughout the month of January, in between Vito’s Montessori works and other activities.

This was a simple and easy to setup activity for Vito. Looks simple but he loves doing this over and over again!

Our recent trip to the United States reignited Mavi’s interest in geography and he asked me if he can review our landmarks of the world figures so he can check the places that he has already visited.

We are all in love with our wooden London Playset/s which we acquired recently. It’s so precious and beautiful that I can’t seem to take it out the bag!
Now how do we use these figures?

Few weeks ago, Mavi and I were learning about Ancient China. I decided that this year, we’ll be focusing in country-based studies rather than continents. Last month we worked on Australia, and because of Chinese New Year being celebrated during February, I guess this month is the best time to conduct Chinese-themed activities.

A few weeks ago, while were doing an Australia Unit, Mavi and I talked about the animals in Australia and in which habitat they belong. We’ve done this years ago but it’s always nice to revisit and add a little depth in the topic.

January is usually the best time to have winter themed activities or do either Antarctica or Arctic activities. It is the time when kids can envision these frozen part of the planet due to the cold/extreme weather. To start with, I set up an invitation to play tray in our shelf and displayed books to go along with it. These can be accessed by the boys whenever they want to and not age specific, big boys and little brothers can share and play with the tray!
