The Night Sky!

It has been quite a while since my last post, but that doesn’t mean we stopped learning. So my next few posts will fill you in on some of the projects we’ve done.
Since she was at least a year old if not earlier, Little has been pointing at the moon. With a wide smile on her face and pure enchantment in her voice she’d  say, “Moon up high!” It was only fitting that I follow her lead by making the moon more accessible to her.  So, I replicated the night sky.  I started simple with just the moon and stars. As she gets older we’ll add more.
Mesmerized!
Our exploration of the night sky included the planets.
I added pictures of the moon phases to the reading corner in her room.
Moon Phase matching
This was easy to do and her response was so cute. For a while she’d say full moon when she looked up at the moon, but a few nights ago while outside she pointed to the moon and said, “Asking Gibbus”. I exploded, “Waxing Gibbus? Waxing Gibbus? Yes, Waxing Gibbus!!” What a magnificent thrill!

De-Shaun Silas formed a blog to share the joys of parenting she supports her child's development. De-Shaun is a loving mother to an energetic 2 year old boy and Professional Nanny of 18 years. Her love for the Montessori philosophy began when she had the opportunity to work for a family whose children were being reared using the Montessori philosophy. Their maternal grandmother, a retired AMI Montessori Directress, took De-Shaun under her guidance. After De-Shaun gave birth to her son in 2012, she adopted the Montessori parenting and educating approach. Using what she learned from the directress, De-Shaun transformed her family’s entire home into a Montessori environment. Although she works 4 days a week, her free time is spent planning activities for other families and working with her son. She holds a degree in Early Childhood Education and is working towards Montessori Certification. She has worked with children with learning disabilities and homeschooled children.
