I'm working my way down the list of activities that Montessori schools encourage. It seems like a lot of normal day-to-day chores, but they are actually very important skills for little ones to learn.
Today we worked on scooping/spooning and pouring. I pulled out a box of beads and some items from our tea set and sat down on the floor. Little Brother was curious, but not interested. That is until.. I started scooping and pouring, then he politely took over and played for about 20 minutes.
