Flower Growing Part 4: Snails


All that lives dies, through age or an accident cutting life short. For some, life is a battle to stay alive, of finding food to eat or fending off those that wish to eat them. All of us kill in some shape or form – it is part of the circle of life. Whether its killing the potato by digging it up, slaughtering a cow for its meat, or breathing in microbes that our immune system destroys lest they take hold and kill us. Many adults are unaware of how much death is around them each hour they live. For a child learning these things, understanding and excepting them are important parts of understanding life as a whole. The place we start is in the garden, where life comes and goes with each season.

The marigolds have gained life and are growing, and last night the snails found one and tried very hard to eat it too. Tonight they will complete their feast. First order of the day – find the snails and move them on.

欧若拉每天的学习工具


身体越来越重,也越来越懒,每天很愧疚的让欧若拉看1.5小时的卡通片,这样我好睡懒觉,但是每天30-60分钟的学习是不能少的,数字,拼音,字母,48拼图,语文是重点抓,以前的闪卡背面都有图片,现在跳过有图片的直接学动词了!

Flower Growing Part 1: Planting Seeds


Gardens are so important for children. Its a place where they can play safely and securely on their own and where they get to discover Nature on their own terms.

Aurora takes great pleasure in watering the plants, pretending to mow the lawn, digging, chasing butterflies, watching bees and birds and joining in all garden activities. Last year she helped collect the seeds from some of our flowers. This year she has planted some of them. Lets see how many grow! Plant boxes are recycled from fruit juice bottles. M is for marigold. ? is for, erm – we don’t know!

Montessori Tasting Bottles

Want use the tasting bottle with aurora ages ago, finally we tried yesterday and it works out very good
i used salt, sugar, chilli powder, pepper 4 different test, i try them first make sure its not very strong for her, i have tested her by end of the day and she can tell me exactly the 4 different test, next time we will try vinegar and other cooking materiel

This set of 4 pairs of bottles with dropper lids on a wooden stand refines a child’s gustatory sense.

Each pair of bottles (one with a white top and one with a black top) can be filled with the basic tastes of sweet, sour, salt and bitter. The child has to find the matching pairs by carefully tasting the different contents.

This is an activity that should be supervised by an adult.

ELG: Investigate objects and materials by using all of their senses as appropriate.

Aurora 2岁了
一直想尝试介绍她这个蒙特梭利味觉瓶,昨天终于尝试了一下
从开始介绍开始,今天我们要来尝试不同的味道,我们有4个瓶子,不过因为是一开始所以只介绍了4个味道给她

甜,咸,辣,胡椒
工具: 餐巾纸, 调羹,糖,盐,辣椒粉,胡椒粉,垫子,水
用勺子挖一点方巾冰块格里面,然后用味觉瓶吸一点自己先开始尝试,味道不要太过刺激,特别是辣椒,只要知道有辣味就可以

下午在问她味道的时候她已经能能正确告诉我这4个味道了
下次我会准备醋,番茄酱,等各种调味作料
