A Little Practical Life

We are just now starting to get into the swing of things with our Montessori materials.  We actually did a lot of work this past week, you can check it out on this Tot School post from Friday.  E has been getting more interested in practical life activities, and her favorite one right now is helping me water the plants outside.  I bought E her own watering can, I fill it up for her from the hose, and tell her which plants to water.  She is learning the names of the plants as well as how to use the watering can and carry it without spilling.
