2014 - All Wrapped Up

When I began this blog back in June I really wasn't sure where it would take me and how long it would last.

To be honest I am still finding my feet and trying to balance work, family, life and my desire to share. Some days I feel I would like to start fresh and I reflect on what that might look like and whether or not I would let this stand or take what I am happy with over to a new venue. Other days I feel the process is what it is and things are starting to take shape and I should let things be.

Behind the scenes I have a long list of draft posts ranging from theory based discussion (e.g. Montessori & Steiner Compared) to classification of botany and zoology. Some are half written, some are just two lines of notes. Something to work on in my spare (ahem) time.

I want to say a big thank you to Living Montessori NowWhat DID We Do All DayMaking Montessori Ours, Study at Home Mama, A Montessori Lexicon, The Learning Ark, Rogue Montessori, Vibrant Wanderings and my readers and followers for your support.

Wishing you all a safe and happy holiday season.

Parts of a Fruit - Parts of the Pear

I mentioned in an earlier post I am in the process of going through my albums and updating some materials.

I am rather pleased with my new parts of the fruit nomenclature and definition cards that in the spirit of Christmas giving I thought I would share them.

I have created two sets - one with the traditional yellow edge for fruit (ready to put onto green card) and one with out. Because I have put everything into the one file (nomenclature, definitions and blackline sheet) the file is on the large side (1MB) - you REALLY need a smaller file let me know through the contact form.

I have also made the cards with a choice of titles - either "parts of fruit" or "parts of a pear" - your preference.

For the file with the traditional yellow border click HERE.
For the file with a plain border click HERE.

I will look forward to sharing photo's of these in action along with a control booklet in the new year.

Happy Holidays!
