Simone reviews the book, "Sewing in the Montessori Classroom" by Aimee Fagan
I loved this book from the opening page where Aimee says she is looking for practical life activities to include in her classroom. "I knew that I wanted activities that were culturally and socially relevant and appealing in my classroom, but what could those lessons be? ....For me, the answer was sewing."
The book shows the sequence of sewing activities you could do with your child even at home. Each activity has very clear steps and beautiful photos.
* The beginning sewing activities build from threading beads on a string to sewing cards.
* Intermediate sewing activities include learning to sew button bracelets, bookmarks and simple felt finger puppets.
* And more advanced activities progress to making pillows and drawstring bags.
* Embroidery, french knitting and finger knitting are also included.
All with really clear, simple instructions to follow.
A really lovely modern Montessori book with projects you would love to make with your child. Available on Amazon or order it from your favorite independent bookstore!
I have no affiliation with this book. Just think it is worth sharing!
