Montessori ABCs

Can you believe that we’ve been stuck inside for almost five months? I can’t believe it either. Aside from possibly contracting the virus, there are millions of other things that have been consuming my thoughts. The main thought that keeps me up at night is my son’s development –mental, social, emotional, psychological, etc. But this is nothing new.

I also wonder if our days are filled with enough stimulating activities. So, instead of wondering, I decided to do something about! I’ve put my creativity (and very expensive Master’s degree) to work and created Montessori Toddler ABC Conversation Starters!

This is just part one in a series of homeschooling resources I plan to create. If you like this product and would like to see more, just drop me a comment! I can also accept CashApp payments if that’s easier for you. Email me at jaemommma@gmail.com and I’ll get the file to you!

How to Create a Montessori Nursery

As I was scrolling down my Facebook feed, as I so often do, a series of pictures caught my eye. And to make matters 1,000 times better, the pictures were baby themed (not exactly helping my baby fever!). Cassidy, a former co-worker and friend, shared with us photos of her Montessori-inspired nursery.

I was familiar with the Montessori teachings and I was 100% up to speed to nurseries, but I wasn’t entirely sure how a nursery could be “Montessori”, so to speak. So, I got to Googling. In short, a true Montessori nursery is a baby’s room that is set up with child-safe and child-centric furniture and decorations. Everything in the room should be safe and accessible to the child. This encourages autonomy and fosters a child’s natural love of learning and curiosity.

Below are some pictures of Cassidy’s super cute, Montessori-inspired nursery!

To foster learning, creativity, and independence, children should be free to move about in a “prepared environment”, in which the children freely choose from a number of developmentally appropriate activities. That being said, you can turn any space in your home into a Montessori space!

This approach can take some time and dedication to implement, but with lots of creativity, a few Google searches, and lots of patience, you too can create a Montessori-inspired nursery for your little one! Just remember, no amount of baby-proofing can substitute a responsible, attentive care provider!

My Body, My Choice!!

When I found out that I was pregnant, I made a promise to myself, my husband, and my unborn that I would do whatever necessary to protect his (or her, but I knew I was having a boy. That’s another story for another post) body autonomy, within reason. So I guess you could say that this design was inspired by my pro-choice, body-positive, laissez-faire, Montessori parenting style. Nothing bothers me more than when someone tries to make my son hug or kiss them without asking. Now, people will hopefully get the message without me saying anything!
