"Home work"

On the way home from school, Lucas was telling me how he showed one of the younger kids one of the "works" in the classroom. ("Work" refers to the various tasks and projects in a Montessori classroom). He told me he would show me the work once we got home.

As I was putting dishes away, Lucas set this up all on his own, even the sign.If you have problems reading this, it says "Practical life number #1". The task? Essentially pouring water from one cup to the other, and back again. After he gave me the "lesson", I did this a few times. I must have done a pretty good job, because he said, "Excellent work, mommy!"
