A Montessori Moment?...

... and ten minutes peace and quiet for mum!  I added the question mark as I'm sure true Montessori followers would find a flaw in this picture, but as I understand the concept, it is allowing children to learn through practical doing.  So here we have a photograph of Pip eating and sorting raisins into a small container.  She was absorbed in the activity for a good ten minutes!  As you can see from the shot it is still dark, yep we were up before the birds!!

  1. Haha Montessori enough! Isn't it fantastic when they are so absorbed in something? That sweet baby concentration... Ah, happy thoughts.
