Toddler Enrichment Ideas:
Please email a picture of your child with their artwork, project or doing their activity to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “enrichment”.
We will compile the pictures we receive and send them out regularly so the class can see what everyone is doing.
Please email a picture of your child with their artwork, project or a photo of them completing an activity to email@example.com
- Art Projects: Have your child hold their project and snap a picture! Check out some projects below!
- Physical Education: Take a picture of your child being active such as yoga or dancing!
- Practical Life: Capture your child helping out around the house. Remember Practical Life teaches Order, Independence, Concentration and Coordination (OICC)
- Take a photo of your child waving to his/her class!
Remember that Montessori Toddlers are used to “doing it themselves”. Allow your Toddler to be as independent as possible.
