Water Transfer Activity with a Funnel

This morning, as soon as Adrian woke up, he rushed to his water activity tray.  Today we are trying a funnel. Variations of this activity are endless, but at a minimum you would need an apron, a tray, a cup to pour the water in from a pitcher while using a funnel.

First, I presented the activity to him. He could not wait to try it out by himself.

(1) Spooning water; (2) pouring water into a tiny jug; (3) using a funnel; (4) cleaning up

Being respectful of the environment is such a big part of Montessori education, and I do see how it translates to my son. There is always a sponge on a tray for any water activity, and he is so meticulous in cleaning up any spills. Adrian also insisted on having a crochet doily for this activity. We all love beautiful things, and I see how Montessori education deepens our aesthetic values.

"What about trying without the funnel?"

"It worked!"

To me, one of the most inviting aspects of Montessori Philosophy is to "follow the child" & let his/her inclination, passion, and aptitude lead the way. For example,  Adrian goes and retrieves few basters he used the day before: initiative is always encouraged in Montessori environment, no matter what age.
