Hello Tulips’ Families,
Thank you to everyone for being attentive to the last post 🙂 This week’s changes of clothes were much smoother!
The children keep going on daily walks and we even made it to the garden this week! There is something special about going on walks and being outdoors. Small children are attentive to the smallest things that become unnoticeable to us, so I love that they can get mesmerized and enchanted by the simplest things they see. It teaches us (adults) so much about being present and enjoy every moment. Besides all the little things they saw, this week we found a male praying mantis, a hawk, doves and bees!
Connecting with nature is one important aspect of the Montessori Education. I know that for many of you the respect for the child, the freedom of movement and how we understand “play” are also appealing aspects. If you, like me, are interested in learning more, I would like to share a few resources that I trust and recommend:
Podcast: the Montessori Notebook with Simone Davis
Podcast: Unruffled with Janet Lansbury
Last but not least, I have a few items listed in the Tulips’ wish list. If you are interested in donating an item to the our community, feel free to send me an email 🙂
Enjoy the photos and have a wonderful weekend!
See you back on Tuesday,
Ms. Karol Diniz
