Day Fifteen

Tour a Montessori school. Observe the classroom set up, or the prepared environment. Take note of what you may consider adding as elements to your home, whether a work such as a pouring work or accessible snacks and beverages, for example.

Day Sixteen

Make the child’s bathroom experience accessible to him. Provide a towel within his reach, consider adding a Faucet Extender and a Light Switch Extender to give him more independence. Perhaps even decorate the bathroom with child friendly reminders about washing hands and fun soap!

Day Seventeen

Give your child the opportunity to practice meal prep with his kitchen tools. He can peel carrots, juice lemons, or mix and measure ingredients. Bread is a great item to bake with children. If you would like other ideas, check out this wonderful books called Pretend Soup . Collaborate with your child on meal planning. Give her visuals, or let her draw out the plan.

Day Eighteen

Read (or review) The Whole-Brain Child by Dan Siegel and Tina Bryson. and Positive Discipline for Preschoolers by Jane Nelson.

Day Nineteen

Commit to helping your child with reading & writing through materials such as a salt tray and pin poking. Check out this post on How to Encourage Writing in Preschoolers for more ideas. Learn more about Montessori’s language philosophy and Montessori’s approach to language development.

Day Twenty

Explore the senses by making a sensory tub, going on a listening walk, a texture hunt, or playing music.

Day Twenty One

Let your child completely dress himself no matter how long it takes.
