Will it melt the heart? experiment

When there is ice and snow on the road, we all see those trucks sprinkling salt on the roads. There is a very logical and simple reason for this. Recently, I presented an experiment to show exactly how and why this is done!

Arctic themed activities

I am so excited to announce that this year, I am gong to be participating in the 12 Months of Montessori series! I am so honoured to be able to join several amazing bloggers as we share wonderful Montessori inspired content every month this year!

This month, we are sharing winter themed activities. Y has been loving our hands on arctic themed activities! Today, I am sharing our trays, with all of the printbales and additional resources we used to enhance our learning!

Panda themed cutting strips freebie

I mentioned last week that I am pretty excited about our Chinese New Year shelves! I really loved being able to visit China when I was 17 (more than ten years ago! oh my how time flies!). I really enjoyed putting together China themed learning activities for my son, and having a chance to remember and reminisce on my time in China. 

Today, I am sharing a China inspired printable for younger kiddos - a Panda themed cutting strips freebie! You can read about how and why you can use these printables for your own toddler below. 

Arctic themed cards

We have been having so much fun with our Arctic and Antarctic themed activities! We are starting to wind down with our winter themed activities and printables, but I wanted to share our last themed printable for this unit! Today, I am sharing beautiful arctic image cards that you can use to enhance your Arctic themed studies!

Black and white arctic animal cards

As you have seen, we have been working on tons of fun arctic themed activities this month with Y! Of course, I don't want to leave out Baby Natasha, so I created some black and white image cards that she could also use! 

Psst! But the fun thing is that these cards could also be used for toddlers. I created each card both as completely black cards as well as black and white, outline cards. Toddlers could use these as matching cards to create a fun visual discrimination work. You can read below why visual discrimination is a very important work for young tots!
