Siblings love to work on the same projects together. But even if your kids are twins, they may be at different developmental stages. Take your cue from Montessori schools, which offer hands-on learning materials that teach sequential skills. For example, the more developmentally advanced child could work on assembling a model vehicle. This activity may require the use of child-safe tools and fasteners. It engages the child’s fine motor skills and problem-solving skills.
At the same time, the other sibling can work on assembling a different vehicle, which doesn’t require the use of tools on very small parts. Instead, this sibling can figure out how to put things together using magnetic connectors. As this second sibling grows and learns, he or she can move on to the more advanced model vehicle that requires the use of tools.
The Montessori School features carefully prepared classrooms full of beautifully designed, engaging learning materials that students can work on independently or collaboratively. To find out about school enrollment , call our campus in North Dallas at (972) 985-8844 or in Allen at (972) 727-2800.
