Are you ready for summer? I am for sure but not without a solid learning plan at my fingertips. Like any good Montessorian, I create a well-planned environment to give the child liberty to lead his own learning. As you know, I am a huge proponent of self-directed learning and that is how we're structuring our summer. These Montessori summer learning activities and resources are great for parents & teachers!
Montessori Summer Learning Activities
A big part of that plan is with Montessori materials & printables. You see, with the right resources, there is no stress. Don't worry, I have tons of Montessori resources to make your summer learning easy and loads of fun!
For those of you who receive my newsletter, you know that I have been giving you details little by little over the past few days. You may have also caught wind that this Montessori Summer Bundle is not only special because it is amazing and offered at a ridiculous discount ($450 worth of materials for $25) but the funds raised with this bundle are going to an extremely important cause.
We're Doing this for Natalie – Learn about her Story
An amazing contributor and friend within the Montessori community, Renae from Every Star Is Different, needs our help. On March 14th, Renae’s sister, Marci, gave birth (via c-section) to a beautiful little boy named Kyler. A short two weeks after Kyler’s birth doctor's diagnosed, Kyler’s older sister, Natalie, not even two year's old, with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Natalie immediately began treatment at the nearest children’s hospital – about 90 miles away from her home. As a contributor & affiliate of this Montessori summer resource, I am donating a portion of my earnings to help Natalie and her family. So, the more people buy the bundle, the quicker we can help Natalie.
What is Included in the Montessori Set?
As I perused this bundle, my heart went pitter patter and my stomach filled with butterflies over the excitement of summer learning. I could close my eyes and image my boys and I using a variety of the materials to make learning fun and engaging.
There are 24 top-notch experienced Montessorians contributing to this bundle of eCourses & downloadable printables. Here is a sneak peek at a few of the awesome resources included in this pack.
Cloud Activity for Preschoolers
I imagined my sons and I laying on the cool grass in our backyard looking up to the sky studying the clouds. We enjoy identifying shapes and designs but also like to integrate a little science with naming the types of clouds. Chickie & Roo's cloud printable cards are THE perfect item to put into my back pocket. I've already printed the cards on cardstock and laminated for safekeeping!
Pond Dipping Activity
One of our favorite activities to do during the warmer months is to explore the ecosystem of ponds. So, we get to study life cycles with Mama's Happy Hive's printables. Then, we can also study the layers of a pond and pond animals with help from Chickie & Roo & Fiddlesticks Kids, respectively. So, we're taking our exploration to the next level this summer.
Layers of the Pond
Life Cycle Printables
Fruit & Vegetable Exploration Activity
We're also going to be using I Believe In Montessori's Fruits, Vegetables, Berries Activities Pack to dissect and explore the inside & outside of fruit, understand the types of berries, and identify types of vegetables. What better time to do this activity than during the amazing sunny summer months!
