One item I am particularly excited about for the boys work space is their “Habitat Basket”. This basket will include various items for my sons to explore. The items will rotate every few weeks to keep the boys interest.
Our first basket was “Farm”, which I know is not officially a “habitat” but it works for us. It included Safari's Farm Toob plus the Vet from their Peoples Toob. I loved being able to integrate the Community Helper theme into the basket. I also included a child's magnifying glass, books about Farms and Gentle Revolution's Bit of Intelligence Horse Card. If you have not checked out these cards, please do. The cards are beautiful and detailed, a great addition to any classroom, play area or bedroom space. In a nearby basket I placed our Parts of a Horse three part cards.
Here is what we plan to include in our Basket:
- Safari's Toobs – Farm, Arctic, Desert, Rainforest, Galapagos, River, In the Water, Coral Reef and Ocean Toobs
- Gentle Revolution's Bit of Intelligence Cards
- A Child's Magnifying Glass
- Farm Three Part Cards from Montessori Print Shop
