Parts of a Plant

September 14, 2010

Possum is 4 years 4 months

Chicken is 2 years 2 months


Here is a Montessori style concept book that I made with the boys.  It goes through the various parts of the plant.

(Mine is on the left, Chicken’s in the middle, and Possum’s on the right).

Possum particularly loved doing this.  Chicken loved it because he felt very grown up and was having Daddy cuddles at the same time.  (This was another waiting activity in a cafe).

The plan is to tie it in to discussions about veges and what parts of plants we eat.

I am learning this is all a much more organic process and formalising it doesn’t work unless that is what the kids want – at least at this stage.  (I always knew that, but sometimes it takes me a while to listen to myself!)

There are certain things in life that seem to require an amount of testosterone.  Washing cars requires more than I possess!

Here are a few pics of the boys learning the joys of polishing the car with their Daddy.  They really enjoyed the afternoon.

Chicken spent a lot of the next day checking out his reflection in the duco, and then holding up various toys to check their reflections, too.

Hello world!

I am a slightly crunchy, Christian, career Mummy to two little boys (Possum born 2006 and Chicken born 2008), who babywears, and tries to practise grace-based discipline (although I don’t always succeed!)

I also have a fantastic Hubby.

I love to cook and paint.  I love the sky and bubbles.  I am not very good at housework and I really hate driving.

I live in Australia.
