Laterns are a traditional Chinese New Year decoration hung to chase away bad luck energy. Our children have been decorating our classroom with these simple latern decorations. The folding and scissor cutting strengthen small motor skills too!
I see hope for a peaceful future when I look into the eyes of my children
This blog is simply a way to share what's on our shelves with families, other teachers, and anyone who is interested in Montessori education.
Feel free to use our activitiy ideas in your homes and classrooms. As a small, new school we operate on a pretty tight budget. Many of our materials are homemade, purchased second hand, or creatively repurposed. Since "reuse and recycle" is quite a trendy movement right now, we are very much in style. Together we can strive to create rich learning environments for our children. We are always learning and looking for ways to improve our work, so we look forward to hearing from you. We encourage you to comment, share ideas, and ask questions.
We'd love for you to spread the word. Go ahead and link away!Please do not copy pictures or text for publication without permission.
