I've been toddling around the internet these last few days in particular pursuit of Montessori inspired work. It interests me somewhat. Not entirely, but somewhat - in so much that it can be used without sending me broke or crazy finding pieces to use.
To my delight this afternoon I discovered that I have an AWESOME jigsaw that would fit all together with this method.
The pieces are a generous thickness too.
It's just a shame that I only have one copy of each letter though.
I think these will blend in very nicely with the playdough letters, and flash cards.
I probably have quite a lot of items that would fall into the Montessori category for the early years. I just have to make the connection.
