I went to montessori preschool as a kid.
One of the things we always did was practice pouring things from one container to another.
I tried it with Max today.
He loved it. I think he did it over and over for about 15 solid minutes which is like two hours to a grown up. He was shockingly good at it.
Then I drew his name on three sheets of card stock and he worked on telling me what letters he was painting with what color. He gets X right every time.
Then he worked on stamping with these paints. I love them! So colorful and they work great
Then he very seriously worked on cutting all the edges of the paper. Not cutting out the letters, he was HORRIFIED when I tried to talk him in cutting out the letters. But he cuts fringe all around the paper. I don't think it really matters what he cuts at this point, it is more about learning the technique.
Or am I off on that?
