This Giveaway is now closed
(Clicl here for the results)

                                                 

I've had the wonderful  opportunity to review this book by author  John Bowman, and have only great thing's to write about it. This  resource is for parents, grandparents, childcare providers  and teachers alike. It's a book full of exciting Montessori Activities complete with  illustrated  pictures  in a fun and understandable format that is easy to follow.
It  has a long  list of  links of Early Learning Activities online, a list of Early Learning Materials  to shop and a great list of  Good First Reading Books. He  talks about  how to present the activities and the goals  for each  Activity. It also gives you a  list of simple stuff (you can find around the house) you can incorporate in your Early Learning Activies for your child.

He tenido la maravillosa oportunidad de opinar sobre este libro del autor John Bowman, y sólo puedo escribir buenoas cosas sobre este. Este recurso es para los padres, abuelos, proveedores de cuidado de niños y maestros por igual. Es un libro lleno de ingeniosas actividades Montessori que se  ilustran con imágenes en un formato divertido y comprensible facil de leer.
Tiene una larga lista de enlaces de  actividades de aprendizaje en internet, una lista de materiales de aprendizaje y una gran lista de nombres  libros para introducir  a nuestros hijos a la lectura. Él habla de cómo presentar las actividades y las metas para cada actividad. También le da una lista de objetos simples (que se  pueden encontrar en la casa) para que pueda incorporarlos  en sus actividades de Aprendizaje Temprano para su hijo.
Here are some Activities that we've made with C before and John  Bowman mentions on his book:
Estas son algunas actividades que ya  hemos  realizado con C  y John Bowman menciona en su libro:

  

                       Magnetic & Not -magnetic / Magnetico & No - magnetico






                                        
                                          Constructive Triangles / Triángulos constructivos



                                        
                                           
                                          Sorting Activities / Actividades de clasificación


After reading John's  book I've discovered many other things that I can do with my daughter in our next month Activities.
 Now that you  have a better idea about this useful resource let's talk about our AWESOME GIVEAWAY!!

Después de leer el libro de John, he descubierto muchas otras cosas que puedo hacer con mi hija.

Thanks so much for hosting!! I would be thrilled to win either item. I have been a bit of a blog slacker lately and this would be huge motivation for fall.

Take care,
Kerri

Elle Belles Bows said...

I really enjoyed checking out Mr. Bowman's site. I greatly appreciated the examples that he gives in his math section. I appreciate how well he breaks down the lesson too. Math is an area that I do not feel confident in teaching to E. So, I would love to learn more.

Thanks!

Kerri
