I always loved presenting poetry as a Montessori teacher and with my own children. The poetry basket is an appealing tactile way to introduce poetry for preschoolers. Counting Coconuts links back to My Montessori Journey as the inspiration for the poetry basket. Be sure to check out the posts on both Counting Coconuts and My Montessori Journey for ideas on how to prepare and present the poetry basket.
Here are links to some other wonderful Montessori-inspired Christmas activities (along with other activities in the posts) which are perfect for use at home or school:
