I am really excited to be getting my Montessori teachers certification through NAMC. It is so enjoyable, I actually look forward to studying:)
Here are a bunch of Montessori activities I have put together for my munchkins for Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur. At the end of the post is a link to all the printables you see in the photos. Feel free to download and print any of them you wish for your sweeties.

Using the tongs, dip a sponge in any color water, let it soak,
