As I brought in all of the materials my sons teacher gave me the kids started to use them. The maps were the most popular. This is a must in any Montessori homeschool. They are really drawn to maps and puzzles and figuring out their place in the world.
Here is sweet boy working on the United States and Bella working on Canada. Bella came up to me and said "I'm going to trace Canada". I'm sure her brother helped her figure out which country she was tracing!
Sweet boy is working on Mexico and Bella is working on Bolivia.
