Earth & It's Seasons

My favourite learning area outside of Language would have to be Geography. So I was really excited when I was approached by a former colleague who is now a home-school mama to put some resources together for her.

This pack provides the foundation for understanding how the Earth's movement around the Sun effects changes in the seasons. The task/activity cards are designed to appeal to different ways of learning (multiple intelligences) and encourage students to enrich their understanding.

Rainbow Frog Adjective Game

One Montessori activity I love is the Detective Adjective Game. You can find an outline of this at HERE, but essentially children learn to discern the different types of triangles through a guessing game using adjectives as clues.

Last year I made a different version of this game for a tutoring student with learning difficulties. I got the idea after we had a session discussing their favourite book Rainbow Frogs.

Coming Soon...

A place and space for educational resources and ideas that fall (a little) outside of my love of Montessori. Many will be Montessori inspired, most will be designed for hands-on learning activities.

Stay tuned!
