This little dude started school full time this week and god it’s been hard! . I’ll be in live tonight (Saturday) in my Facebook group at 8pm with my 3 top tips on how to get your kids talking about their day, without the tears and tantrums! . To join the group, hit the link in my bio! See you tonight! 💕 . #organiclearning #education #learning #Montessori #montessorilife #practicallife #hyggekids #hygge #holisticlearning #homeschool #homeedessex #homeedlife #preschool #preschoolers #toddlerlife #leighonsea #leighonsealife #homeschooling #homelearning #homeeducation #teachersofig #teachers #learnthroughplay #learnforlife #teachersofinstagram #childhoodunplugged #homeeducator #mumlife #momlife #sahm

Hi everyone! . Today is the last day to book onto this round for the Phonics for Parents course this time! . It’s £59 for a super easy 4 week online course, delivered through Facebook. . 🍃 30 minute content video for three weeks delivered by me, experienced teacher and Montessori guru 🍃 Live q&a each week where I will be answering any questions you have on the course or your child’s reading journey 🍃 A catch up week to finish the course so you can go back to any content you have missed. 🍃 A whole load of printable resources including flash cards, word cards and a progression guide 🍃 A brilliant activity guide . Plus BONUSES for the next person to book on include: 🍃 A toys and games guide to support phonics learning 🍃 A Phonics book guide so you know what to look for! . FAQs: . I’m not sure I have time... The course content is around 90 minutes in total! 90 minutes that you can catch up on at any point within the 4 week period. . Do you do payment plans? Yes! Pay half now and half when the course is finished. . Does my child need to be at school? No! It’s great to get yourself prepared for when they show an interest. . I’m not sure that now is the right time for me and my child. That’s okay, I’ll be running the course again! Probably not until the new year now though! . Will you keep the price the same? No sadly not. Right now I’m completing the piloting phase of this course and next time I run it, I’ll be putting the price up. . Will you sell the resources separately? Yes, I will be selling them for £19, but they are only for people that know how to use them. The resources are brilliant, but they won’t mean much unless you know what to do with them. The course is the valuable bit and this time around you’ll be getting all the resources plus the course content and my expertise for just a tenner extra per week! . Any other Qs, feel free to contact me

So how was school today? Always hearing “I don’t know” or “I can’t remember”? Here are my 3 top tips on how to get them talking! 1. WAIT IT OUT You have to remember, they’ve been busy all day, their brains have been working so hard and they’ve had a lot to take in. Your child will need time to wind down, to process everything that’s gone on in the day, have a snack and a drink etc. Trust that when they are ready to talk, they will talk. Save the questions for later on. 2. TELL THEM ABOUT *YOUR* DAY When they’re well rested, giving them little snippets about your own day opens up a conversation. It puts no pressure on them to join in if they don’t want to and it may trigger their memory and remind them of something they did that day. 3. ASK CLOSED QUESTIONS Asking yes/no questions, or questions requiring only one-word answers gives your child the opportunity to join in with minimal commitment and less thinking and remembering. If they’re tired, they probably aren’t up to having a long-winded discussion about their day, but they may be happy to answer a few closed questions. .

TODAY my phonics for parents course starts! If money has been holding you back, no problem! It’s not too late to join us. . For a £14 deposit and £15 per month for the next three months, you’ll get all the expertise and all the resources for a tiny payment each time. .

Yoghurt coated corn on the cob is where it’s at! Living her best life 😆

The set up at Nestlings this morning! FREEDOM of the child is what it’s all about. There is nothing here that the children who attend cannot interact with. They’re encouraged to be independent, by making their own snack and drink, and there’s always loads of practical life work and sensory play too! 💕 . #organiclearning #education #learning #Montessori #montessorilife #practicallife #hyggekids #hygge #holisticlearning #homeschool #homeedessex #homeedlife #preschool #preschoolers #toddlerlife #leighonsea #leighonsealife #homeschooling #homelearning #homeeducation #teachersofig #teachers #learnthroughplay #learnforlife #teachersofinstagram #childhoodunplugged #homeeducator #mumlife #momlife #sahm

Who’s said this? It’s harmless right? Nope, sorry, it sends unconscious negative messages to our kids. . By celebrating the weekend, we are unconsciously telling our kids that that’s all they should live for, and that school isn’t the best place to be. . Saying that they HAVE to go to school during the week makes it sound like a chore, and like they won’t have any fun there. . And that sort of messaging carries through to adulthood. . Tweaking our language, just slightly, means that we can give out much more positive vibes to our kids! . “It’s Saturday, that means we are all at home together!” “Saturday means swimming!” “At the weekends, we see Nanny and Grandad!” . Are you living for the weekend? . #organiclearning #education #learning #Montessori #montessorilife #practicallife #hyggekids #hygge #holisticlearning #PositiveVibes #howtotalktokids #preschool #preschoolers #toddlerlife #leighonsea #leighonsealife #Saturday #weekend #teachersofig #teachers #learnthroughplay #learnforlife #teachersofinstagram #childhoodunplugged #homeeducator #mumlife #momlife #sahm

Look at this amazing perpetual calendar by @beckingsaledesigns . There are so many skills involved here - counting the days, days of the week, months of the year, the weather, the season, but also threading the discs onto the dowel helps develop fine motor skills, the indents of the pictures help develop memory, and there’s spelling and reading the words too! . 📸 @thrivingmindseducation . #organiclearning #education #learning #Montessori #montessorilife #practicallife #hyggekids #hygge #holisticlearning #homeschool #homeedessex #homeedlife #preschool #preschoolers #toddlerlife #leighonsea #leighonsealife #homeschooling #homelearning #homeeducation #teachersofig #teachers #learnthroughplay #learnforlife #teachersofinstagram #childhoodunplugged #homeeducator #mumlife #momlife #sahm

My class this afternoon 💕 . As part of #worldsmentalhealthday we chatted about the difference between mental and physical health and noticed a lot of parallels. . I wanted to give them ownership of the session so I asked them how they would like to continue the lesson. And they came up with some amazing creative ideas - art work, circle time, role play, team building, compliment circle, lunch club to name a few! . I gave them free reign to create what ever they wanted that was related to the topic, and this is what a few of them came up with! (Swipe to see in full colour). . They designed and created their own “worry wall” complete with a worry box where they can write down a worry and pop it in the box for the teacher to read. . They also wrote some worries on post it notes and gave each other advice. . None of this came from me. . This is 100% NOT on the curriculum, but it is 100% worth giving time to. . What have they learned? A whole bunch of stuff! Empathy, how to listen, how to talk, how to open up, compassion, kindness, creativity, problem solving, reading, writing, fine motor, team work, turn taking, compromise, self worth and probably a ton more that I haven’t listed here. . Academic skills? Hell no! But what academic skills are worth having if you can’t be emotionally available? . The British school system fails most children in the most basic way - not meeting their emotional needs. . There is so much scientific evidence to show that happy kids make more progress, learn better and easier, and are less pressured. Why is it that our government continues to ignore the science and evidence and is continuing to throw in more and more testing, more and more pressure? . They are honestly the sweetest bunch of kids and I’m so lucky to be their teacher! . #organiclearning #organiclearninghub #teachers #teachersofig #teachersofinstagram #worldmentalhealthday2019 #mentalhealth #ofsted #morethanascore #year6 #boycottsats #kidsarewholepeopletoo #whereisthelearning #learninghappenseverywhere #childled #childledlearning #childled #childlededucation #Montessori #letkidsbekids #childledactivity #faireducationforall #getthetoriesout #kidswellbeing #thenextgeneration

👌🏻👌🏻 . Posted @withrepost • @teachovertherainbow 🍎 These trees were both 17 years old when harvested. The smaller one competed for space in a small plot with many other trees. The larger one was planted out in an open area not having to compete for space. What if these were students? One student in a crowded classroom with a high student/teacher ratio and the other student in a less crowded classroom with a low student/teacher ratio? If that’s the outcome for a simple tree, what do you think the outcome is for a very complex human trying to be successful in a classroom? Don’t forgot to add in all of the outside forces that students face before they even step foot in the school house.

Yasssss! . Meeting your child physical and emotional needs does not mean that you are “giving in” or “letting them get away with it” because they “just want attention”. . Kids crave CONNECTION not attention. When they are acting out is because that’s the only way they know to get connected with you. . In turn you get happy kids that know you have their back no matter what. . #organiclearning #education #learning #Montessori #montessorilife #practicallife #hyggekids #hygge #holisticlearning #homeschool #homeedessex #homeedlife #preschool #preschoolers #toddlerlife #leighonsea #leighonsealife #homeschooling #homelearning #homeeducation #teachersofig #teachers #learnthroughplay #learnforlife #teachersofinstagram #childhoodunplugged #homeeducator #mumlife #momlife #sahm

THE most amazing review, thank you so much Ursula @thekidsareplaying . Posted @withrepost • @thekidsareplaying || Stay & Play with @organiclearninghub || 🔸 I remember the first time I saw Organic Learning Hub promoting their #Montessori sessions at @do.it.like.a.mother_hq a while ago. I remember thinking 'At last! Somebody had the great idea of opening a place (aka sessions) where the independence and the physical, mental and social development of each child is the focus, and these are enrich with amazing learning resources.' or something like that. 😅 Today, we spent part of our afternoon at a Stay & Play session with Emma (it was lovely to meet you!) and it was all we were expecting to see and experience. A lovely set up with wooden toys, sensory stimulation, learning reaources and open-ended games. Emma was coming and going, and making sure we were all comfortable and happy. My youngest (3) spent the session counting, grouping, practising phonics, drawing with chalks, playing with plasticine and he managed to find some sort of counting bar and use it as a sword! 🤦‍♀️ I spent most of the time sitting back and chatting away with a friend while drinking tea. The next Stay & Play session is on Tuesday 29th of October from 12:30pm - 2:00pm and you can book now. Check @organiclearninghub's website in their bio and check all the different session their have. . #organiclearning #education #learning #Montessori #montessorilife #practicallife #hyggekids #hygge #holisticlearning #homeschool #homeedessex #homeedlife #preschool #preschoolers #toddlerlife #leighonsea #leighonsealife #homeschooling #homelearning #homeeducation #teachersofig #teachers #learnthroughplay #learnforlife #teachersofinstagram #childhoodunplugged #homeeducator #mumlife #momlife #sahm

Did you know that scaring your kids can actually be a good thing? It means that they are more practised in managing the fear emotion. . For kids under the age of 6 in particular, introducing fear can be as simple as playing peekaboo, as lively as jumping out on each other in hide and seek or as nerve wracking as encouraging them to take big risks! . Allowing our kids the opportunity to experience mild versions of fear diffuses it’s intensity. It also means that next time they experience something scary, their brains can better integrate the signals which means it will be less likely to cause so much emotional distress. . It’s still really important for us to be there to support them though. Children under the age of 6 are unlikely to be able to manage more than one intense emotion at a time, so we need to make sure that we are there to comfort, if fear becomes overwhelming. . #organiclearning #education #learning #Montessori #montessorilife #practicallife #hyggekids #hygge #holisticlearning #homeschool #homeedessex #homeedlife #preschool #preschoolers #toddlerlife #leighonsea #leighonsealife #homeschooling #homelearning #homeeducation #teachersofig #teachers #learnthroughplay #learnforlife #teachersofinstagram #childhoodunplugged #homeeducator #mumlife #momlife #sahm

With Halloween coming up it’s natural for us parents to wonder whether our children might be scared of something and preempt the fear. . However, by making the assumption that something may be scary for our children, we could actually be doing them a disservice. . Take the dentist for example. As adults, many of us dislike visiting the dentist. And many of us are likely to tell our children “it’s nothing to be afraid of” before they’ve even had a chance to find out for themselves. . The dentist is a massive trigger of fear for many adults. But it won’t be for your kids. Children are not born afraid of the dentist, or spiders, or the dark, or certain animals. They learn to be afraid from us. . By assuming fear is present and saying phrases like “there’s nothing to be scared of”, we are subconsciously projecting our own fears onto our kids. We are telling our children that there is something unnerving about the situation, and that increases their adrenaline levels. . They become fearful of a situation before they have had a chance to experience it. . Hey, they may even like the dentist or spiders! . #organiclearning #education #learning #Montessori #montessorilife #practicallife #hyggekids #hygge #holisticlearning #homeschool #homeedessex #homeedlife #preschool #preschoolers #toddlerlife #leighonsea #leighonsealife #homeschooling #homelearning #homeeducation #teachersofig #teachers #learnthroughplay #learnforlife #teachersofinstagram #childhoodunplugged #homeeducator #mumlife #momlife #sahm

This is such a great way of allowing your baby the opportunity to look at tiny objects without the risk of them putting them in their mouth! When the bottles move, the objects move too which adds a little extra interest! . Posted @withrepost • @play_at_home_mummy • BABY SENSORY BOTTLES • Sensory bottles are so easy to make and so versatile - we’ve been making them for years! . I made these ones up the other day when I was rotating Miss 5.5 months’ toys. I use these plastic Voss bottles - I’ve had them for ages, I found them at my local woollies! They’re usually in the same spot as the glass ones, so you have to look carefully for them! They’re perfect for babies and kids 🙌🏻 . I filled these with: bells, coloured pasta and blue water. The bells I’ve been collecting for years. Mostly from spotlight I think! The coloured pasta is rigatoni - I dyed it to make necklaces with the girls ages ago using food colouring, vinegar and a zip lock bag! The water I dyed using blue food colouring. Some people choose to super glue the lids shut when making sensory bottles. I didn’t this time because Miss 5 months isn’t strong or coordinated enough to open them yet! . She’s really been enjoying exploring these, and especially loves the blue water - I think the reflections it has and they weight it gives the bottle are appealing to her! We will do many more of these as she grows 😊🥰 . . . . #earlylearning #playislearning #teachermum #playmatters #reggiokids #invitationtoplay #childhoodunplugged #playbasedlearning #toddleractivitiesathome #learningthroughplay #toddlerplay #preschoolplay #babyplayideas #playathome #stayathomemum #playathomemummy #preparedplay #homeschoolaustralia #montessoriathome #followthechild #babyplay #montessoribaby #instamum #reggioinspired #playbased #diybabytoys #babyplayspace #babyplay #babyplayhacks #babyactivitiesathome

It’s so natural for children to have worries. And generally, those worries are developmental. . Here are some ways you can expect your child to show fear and anxiety dependant on their age: . 0-6 months - loud noises or loss of contact with significant adults 7-12 months - fear of strangers or objects that loom over them 1 year - loud noises, when hurt, when separated from parents 2 years - animals, large unfamiliar objects, darkness 3-4 years - vivid dreams, anticipation of an event, animals, masks, darkness 5-6 years - physical injury, “bad” people, supernatural beings like ghosts or witches, thunder and lightning 7-8 years - being alone, death, being seriously injured, darkness 9-12 years - school performance and tests/exams, physical appearance, serious injury, death, not wanting to grow up . Do any of these ring true for your kids? . #organiclearning #education #learning #Montessori #montessorilife #practicallife #hyggekids #hygge #holisticlearning #homeschool #homeedessex #homeedlife #preschool #preschoolers #toddlerlife #leighonsea #leighonsealife #homeschooling #homelearning #homeeducation #teachersofig #teachers #learnthroughplay #learnforlife #teachersofinstagram #childhoodunplugged #homeeducator #mumlife #momlife #sahm
