Otis (5yrs) makes his own lunch almost every day! But it's up to me to provide healthy food options. On the blog I'm talking about using the Health Star Rating to make healthier food choices! #healthstarrating #healthstars #spon #montessorikitchen #kidsinthekitchen

I used to think that independence was something we adults have to teach our children and so we love how in Montessori, children "learn to be independent". But I recently realized something important--a little shift in perspective, a more nuanced understanding that's changing my life yet again. I realized that independence is NOT something we have to TEACH the child. Independence is already his natural WORK--his FIRST work when he came out from the mother's womb (Maria Montessori said the child's "conquest of independence" begins "with his first introduction to life" when "the child leaves a person--his mother's womb--and this makes him independent of her bodily functions"). And every day since, more and more, the child's work is essentially a work of independence--in movement, language, mind, and will. And when we observe it's easy to see these. Independence is not something we have to teach--children are already doing it, working it, gravitating towards any activity or work that will help them achieve it (a stool they can pull up on by themselves, insisting on brushing their own teeth, enjoying choosing, etc). Nobody tells them, teaches them to do such and such so they can move, express, think, choose independently--they're already doing it--they already know what to do when they're ready for it. And so our work as adults is not to teach independence, but to tune in to the child so much and well so we know exactly what he is working on and to provide an environment that allows for the child's natural drive, natural work of independence. An environment with opportunities that support and celebrate their "conquest of independence". A shift in perspective and thinking--we don't teach, as Einstein (I think influenced by Montessori) said, "I never teach my pupils, I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn." The more I experience and experiment with and think about and tinker with Montessori, the more I begin to understand why Maria Montessori said, "If we consider this we begin to have a glimpse of reality. The child is not an empty being who owes whatever he knows to us who have filled him up with it. No, the child is the builder of man."

Practical life in the kitchen

Cutting using wavy knife. (Disclaimer: jangan tiru aksi ini jika anak belum dilatih menggunakan pisau sepenuhnya. Latihan step by step perlu and please do it under strict close observation)
Sekali lagi saya tekankan, in Montessori,we use real object for real work and bersesuaian ikut umur.
Mula2 dulu,saya start ajar ziyad guna pisau sapu jem kat roti tu then saya upgrade guna wavy knife. In addition,latihan santai guna wooden veggies cutting pun main peranan juga.
Surprisingly, ziyad tahu sendiri yang pisau sifatnya tajam n you might cut your finger. Sama seperti konsep guna breakable glass jug untuk tuang air dalam cawan. Konsep kaca itu mudah pecah,so they will be extra careful when handling glass, sama mcm pisau juga. I noticed he will be very careful when cutting real food mcm banana ke,papaya, egg,apple and etc.

As I mentioned before, I bought ikea kitchen set for him to work properly on it. Bukan sekadar hiasan di ruang tamu sahaja. Hehe. No pain, no gain. Worth for every penny.
Nanti saya kongsikan pula items yang saya beli untuk setup mini useful and purposeful kitchen for ziyad inshallah.

Today, featuring 5 Montessori kitchen spaces to love! These are all gorgeous and bonus -- great IG accounts to follow. Featuring @rachachanmontessori @midwestmontessori @minicityfarmers @al.luluuu @freeandunfettered 🔗 in profile

Avery's kitchen space complete with a mini fridge, dishpan (hidden), and a source of water. I love watching him use this space. #averycooper #futurebaker #22months #montessorikitchen

MOST RECENT

Together they conquer the kitchen (and I follow close behind)!
.
.
I am noticing that they have identified process and order in their practical life work in the kitchen
.
.
- Identified where the tools were
- Identified what tools they needed from their cabinet
- ‎Found spots that needed to be cleaned
- ‎Used the appropriate tools in the appropriate order
- ‎Intrinsic reward...the spot was gone
- ‎Looked for a new spot to clean

So grateful to witness these developments.
So grateful to find the energy to observe and follow them through these experiences again.
So grateful to get down to their level again
So grateful for these busy bodies
So grateful for my mommy body
.

What are you conquering today???

- Cooking -
Helping mummy with tomorrow's lunch before going to bed is such a relaxing activity, both for you and for them. It helps you being ahead of schedule and helps them to free that little last energy they might have left. Have you ever tried it?

Ayudar a mumi a preparar la comida de mañana antes de ir a la cama es super relajante, tanto para vosotros como para ellos. A vosotros os libera del estrés de tener que hacerlo todo al día siguiente y ellos terminan de gastar esa poca energía que les quede antes de dormir. ¿Lo habíais probado alguna vez?

A few days ago, these two helped prep their pasta dinner.

With big brother we used to spend so much time doing practical life work in the kitchen from as young as 14 months. With the twins it's been a bit harder to manage both in the kitchen up until more recently because...well there's two of them and I still have to get stuff done!

But the last few weeks they have been showing a lot of interest in the kitchen and I've been running with it especially because there has been more productive work than just referring the two of them. The key once again is a prepared space for them to thrive in. My immobile pregnant body struggled with this a month ago but I'm excited to have them in the kitchen more now that I can keep up again. And no, a newborn is not stopping us (yet). Swipe to see them prep the pasta from pouring it into the pot to cook (keep in mind this took about 45 minutes for them to do, so I made sure to start early enough to give them that time to explore), to topping it with sauce after it was ready. And big brother makes a grand appearance at the end to give it a final whirl.

With them, it's never too many cooks in our little kitchen!

Yes, while the newborn was wailing in the background, and big brother was telling one of the twins, "it hurts when you bite, you shouldn't bite", I was re-doing the same dishes with the other twin because they both wanted to do the dishes. (I think that's what caused the biting scene!) #lifewithtwins

What's that he's shredding? Any guesses? (Swipe to see)

This is a great example of gross and fine motor skills working together. He uses both hands to coordinate picking up, transferring the food, identifying the various buttons and pushing down the food from the shoot. His fine motor skills work hard to press the rather hard and tiny power buttons.
They don't work slow on purpose. It just takes them longer to process the steps and move their bodies. Something our large and mighty adult fingers, more experienced brains and much more coordinated bodies, take for granted.

I really need to have him try shredding the old fashion way again. This generation... #grossmotor

We, fully grown and very developed, adults struggle to coexist with one another whether it is living together, working together or just being together on this Earth.

Yet here we are giving them [our tiny humans] lessons on how to take turns, share and be nice to one another.

Sometimes we need to just pause and take in what they are modeling for us. They are little reflections of us but we too can be much better people by being a little more like them.
This picture melted my heart. They worked together, with very minimal communication but so much understanding and chemistry. They have their own system and sometimes we are the ones that get in the way.
In the video: you can see the brothers balancing on that tiny stool together. They were hanging on to one another, waiting their turns to get down and still working with a purpose. I don't know how they do it, but I am willing to learn.

Tis the season for warm food here in the PNW. Anyone else cooking soups? Our 3 year old buttered the bread and our 5.5 year old helped open cans. The Pampered Chef can opener is helpful for safe removal of can tops.

Here is another one of Big Brother shortly after his 3rd birthday. This is a continuation of my last posts on fine motor skills. Do you see similarities in his hand position in the last picture and this one? He's doing two different tasks but using the same movement. Similar muscle strength. And so much focus. This is why observing is so important! You will see the similarities.

The outlined letters he's coloring over are leftovers of his birthday party decorations. (We like to repurpose and recycle when possible). Not quite the perfect Montessori metal insets but it sure reminds me of them. (Oh how badly I wanted those!). Those ity, bity, fingers are getting stronger and so much more coordinated to do these finer tasks.

This is one of my favorite pictures of my oldest son (Big brother) utilizing his fine motor skills. He had just turned 3 in the picture and was going through a sensitive period with cutting even though he had been cutting foods since he was 1.5 years old. This sensitive period was different because it is when he made the shift of enjoying to "write". At this phase he wanted to cut everything and he had developed this amazing hold for smaller foods like grapes, berries and olives (pictured here). Up until this time, he had very little interest in drawing, or coloring for more than a few minutes. And to my surprise, it didn't bother me one bit. But in just a matter of months it was amazing to these skills right here evolve into his sudden interest in writing, drawing and using writing tools.

Stay tuned for some more throwbacks showing my oldest ones progression into "writing" using his fine motor skills.
