Interpreting the Farm
I had to share this rather humorous take on the farm. This child has only been presented through the preposition, so there are a few mistakes, for all you Montessorians out there. She decided to embellish her work by drawing pictures of the animals. I think it says, "The pig is feeding her pigs. The geese ate the mother dog. The horse is standing on the barn and the geese on ________. The big fat _________ fainted on Sunday and the donkeys on _______________________ in the barn." If you have any ideas to fill in the blanks, let me know by commenting!
I am a Montessori teacher who just completed my 10th year. I feel lucky to have found a calling that incorporates so many of my interests: music, theater, art, literature, and sports. I adore singing, tennis, and gardening. I have three fabulous children ranging in age from 14-21 (all Montessori-educated). Montessori opened up the world for me. I found out I love practical life and making beautiful things, which I have dubbed "Jane Austen Time."
