I Did It Myself!: I Can Get Dressed, Brush My Teeth, Put on My Shoes, and More: Montessori Life Skills (I Did It! The Montessori Way)
In Stock At Our Store In Toronto (2229 Danforth Ave.)
This books is a wonderful way to talk about and teach self care to children ages 2-5.
Self-care skills, like hair brushing and self-dressing, help children to develop independence and self-confidence. These skills also teach them to listen to their bodies, i.e. my nose is running so I need a tissue to wipe it.
Inspired by the Montessori curriculum, the unique book format features an interactive skills chart that's included on the inside back cover, with sturdy slider windows for each activity. This offers children the perfect incentive to make self-care a daily routine, as they complete each activity, slide the window, and confidently declare, “I Did It!”.
Includes photos of children:
Washing their hands
Brushing their teeth
Brushing their hair
Blowing their nose
Preparing for the day
Each task includes step-by-step photos from Montessori teacher Saniyyah Kahalilallah.
