my first (semi) solo day with eleven toddlers (and three very
supportive and helpful staff members).
it was amazing –
exhausting, but wonderful.
one of the primary components of the montessori philosophy
is the notion of the “prepared environment.”
essentially, the prepared environment
entails having a beautiful, organized, and purposeful
environment for the children to enhance their
(there is quite a bit more to it,
and more i have to learn,
but you get the general idea, right?).
i wanted to spruce things up in our
little classroom, so here are a few changes i made:
^^^ a reading nook ^^^
^^^ cleaned out the book case ^^^
^^^ hello organized. wish i had a before picture for you! ^^^
^^^ cleaned up and decorated our little toilet area ^^^
i cannot wait to make a few more changes
and share the end result with you.
and now, it’s time for this girl to go. to. bed.
