North America Flags

We are a little bit behind with our teaching lessons. We still are on North America continent/geography and learning about flags of each continent. Eaton doesn't like the Montessori presentation of 3 part cards. I think that this method is good for older kids but not a toddler. What I did is that I wrote down the name of each country at the back of each card and I was showing them to Eaton in the form of flashcards. Then, we had a game in the form of questions. This way is the best way Eaton absorbs all knowledge and then participate in answering my questions.

Keep your lessons short!

Haha. He's so cute! Love little baby voices!

Josiah doesn't like flash cards, so we use just the control card for 3 Part Cards. I leave them out on his shelves. We'll go through about five or more sets in a row that way. He hands them to me and tells me what it is if he knows. If not, I tell him. That's how he prefers it. He isn't too big into matching yet, so using all the 3 Part Cards is out of the question! Kids are funny with their little personalities and preferences.
