We are a family with three 'wee winkles' exploring the pleasures and perils of educating at home using Scripture, Montessori and a lot of love!

The sense of taste

For the sense of taste I made a felt mouth on our little roll up felt mat.
While it might help Lamb learn the basic parts of the mouth and the names of the teeth, I did it more for a counting exercise as he places the teeth. He gets mixed up from 14 through to 18 so I thought a little practice wouldn't go astray.
We also added the next row on our five senses chart.
Lamb was able to read 'hot' and 'cold' and glue the correct pictures into their squares but he needed help deciphering the other words. Once he knew what they said, he knew what picture needed to go where.


  1. Oh my goodness, lady, WHY don't you have many, many more followers yet?? Your ideas are brilliant and original and I hope that many other homeschooling / Montessori mothers will 'discover' you soon. Your originality is refreshing and I am super glad that I found your blog - thanks for leaving the comment on mine, I am so glad you did.

  2. Thank you so very much for the encouragement! Mummies at home could all do with words like these from time to time. It is lovely to find someone who shares your philosophy, whose ideas you can share and who can use your ideas making them all the more worthwhile, so thank you again! I guess this is what blogging is all about!
