Using Themes and Pinterest Activities to Follow Your Child’s Interests and Choices
I know that many of you feel overwhelmed by the number of possible activities available online. Your child can help you with that! An important part of Montessori education is following your child’s interests and giving your child choice whenever possible.
If you have a child who is often uninterested in educational activities, you might want to try having your child help you choose which activities to prepare. If you’d like to use a theme, you could check out this post: Should You Use Unit Studies? You’ll find links to all my Montessori-inspired themes in it. You could also go to my Pinterest boards with activities of all kinds.
Either way, let your child help you choose activities and/or a theme he or she would like to do. I also have a post called “I Love Pinterest for Parenting and Teaching Ideas!” You can get ideas there of Pinterest boards I have available.
Giving your child a choice of activities you prepare will increase the chances of engaging your child’s interest and natural love of learning. It’s frustrating to prepare activities your child doesn’t show interest in. Since you can easily design your activities around one child at home, why not do that in a way that will be helpful to both you and your child?!
