Hi, I am new to this forum, please forgive me if I phrase things incorrectly. I recently came across Montessori and decided it would fit my 18 month old DD (and my) lifestyle/personalities well. I am having a hard time finding information on infant/toddler Montessori homeschooling activities, and would love it if anyone had suggestions or links. I have started incorporating things as I find them, but I am not sure if I am doing things in the "right" order.
So far we do:
As much outdoor activities as possible, walking and discovering/touching things.
Started practicing scooping/pouring - but sometimes she tries to eat/drink the materials :)
I bought a big bead lacing set (not opened, it says 3+ but I was thinking about using it now?)
DD loves wooden puzzles (not sure if that's montessori), I got her some shape pattern puzzles, but they also say 3+
Lots of reading
Play doh (again not sure it's really montessori)
Things I want to do from reading a few posts here today:
Sensory box with different "feeling" things.
Color box(es) for sorting
Need to find my shape sorter DH "put away"
Please, any ideas are welcome...hopefully I can contribute to the group more when I get my feet under me a little :) I wish there was a book that had lots of activities by age and explaination of what each activity developes (maybe there is?)
