Happy Valentine's💝 Day. I hope you had a lovely celebration. Today, I will show you a sneak peek into our Learning Space (our classroom), as well as a summary of our Valentine's inspired activities.
When we moved into our new house (in September of 2016), and I walked into this room and saw these tall double windows and a cathedral ceiling, I knew it will be our learning space. Montessori classrooms are known for their light, airy and child-tailored environment, and I hoped to resemble it in our home-setting. (Adrian is sitting at a Safari table, on this chair. View Table/Chair Height Guide in this post.)
We read this Valentine's book, which is perfect for a three-year old. The story of Saint Valentine is very sad, and this "Rookie" series book has just enough information with big colorful illustrations on each page-spread.
On this shelf we have:
- Pipe-cleaner beading activity (read a post here, also see below),
- Odd and Even activity (read a post here );
- Polar bear unit study (in preparation for International Polar Bear day on February 27);
- Penguin tray (read our Polar Regions Unit Study here).
Below is a summary of our Valentine's inspired activities with links to their respective posts. I also organized the activities by areas of Montessori curriculum.
