Montessori NAMC Curicullum/Albums – H2’s current stage

May 22, 2011 Leave a comment

I’ve been focusing so much on M and H these days, I feel H2 is neglected in terms of acquiring skills and learning. Well, he’s happily cycling the tricycle and doing lego, menggentel plasticine (like playdough), roleplaying/acting with his sisters, maybe it’s not all that bad. However, a lot can still be done.

So I went to the NAMC site, and identified that H2 is at the infant-toddler stage. Alhamdulillah, when looking at the TOC of the manuals for infants and toddlers, he seems to be acquiring and have acquired most of the skills he should have for his age. Below is the current checklist for H2. I don’t think I’ll be so rigid, and necessarily be doing all, but they are mostly good ideas. It’s a good list for mummies to do with their 2yo.

So I’ve put a ‘/’ to some of the activities that I think H2 has been exposed to. Once the activity is re-enforced, another ‘/’mark. I think maybe 3 slashes ‘///’ for me means thatH2 is suitably exposed. So there’s the plan!

Oh..added an Islamic Studies list at the end, still working on it.
