Montessori Moments: Her Own Work

I love when children just take off and make up their own work!

Without a word from me, she headed over to the continent puzzle map.
She took out all the puzzle pieces and placed them on the "frame" of the puzzle as she has been taught.
She then got out the continent cards.
As she took a small card, she would locate the matching continent puzzle piece.
She then placed it where it belonged and put the card next to it.

 This is where she was in her work, when I notciced her.

She eventually placed the large cards on top of the smaller cards and even placed some of the name cards on top of them.

Good work, done well, I'd say!


  1. I love this idea and that kids can and will do the work on their own! That is awesome!

  2. This is a great idea and example of what kids can do without help.
