Friday's Favourite's!

Well it's the weekend and I'm glad this week!  My Mum and Dad have been in Canada for the last month travelling and visiting my brother and sister-in-law, and I have begun to miss them this last week!  Tomorrow after gymnastics I am taking the girls over to their house to drop off essentials and an 'oven ready' meal, and the girls have plans too!

I have made the decision to include our home-educating adventures on this blog too.  I tried to start another blog just for that but decided against it as I really want to concentrate on just one and the home-ed and childminding intermix anyway!

I had a busy week with the childminding group's Big Toddle on Wednesday morning, and a group meeting on Monday where we explored 'Working in Partnership with Parents'.  I will put the information together on here for you over the weekend if anyone is interested.

So here are my favourite's this week:
  • The Montessori Goldmine where my weaving frame was featured!
  • This colour matching game from 'I make stuff'
  • In Montessori, a farm is used to show children practical examples of how grammar works, and how it is used in sentence building.  I like this approach at 'The Work Plan' which has cards with a picture and the name of the animals on for toddlers to match to and provide a prompt for learning them.
Next week one of my toddlers returns from a holiday in France and we are going to have a French theme for the week, I have collected some nice resources together and hope the little ones will enjoy it!

Have a lovely weekend!
