Pin-punching is an activity that requires (& builds) concentration & discipline! The child uses a slightly pointy tool to carefully punch tiny holes along the black line of a shape. We then gently pop-out the shape. In this case a Christmas tree that can be made into an ornament. 🎄#christmastree #montessori #montessorischool #montessoriart #finemotor #discipline #concentration #earlychildhood #missionviejo #christmas #christianmontessori #christianpreschool
We love watching our birds! They’re happy to have the playground all to themselves. #birdwatching #lovedoves #missionmontessori #montessorischool #missionviejo

Happy Thanksgiving Week! Food prep seems very appropriate right now but it is a favorite all year long. Banana slicing; the perfect first food prep activity for a young preschool or toddler aged child. Children gain confidence when they are successful at “real life” tasks such as this. Montessori parents do you encourage independence & self care at home from your child? If so, tell us how! #montessoritoddler #montessoriathome #montessori #foodprep
First writing exercises in the Montessori classroom are offered w/ sand, chalk & water. In this way children are learning sensorially & w/o the frustration of mistakes on paper. Happy Sunday ☀️
