How are you? We are ok, struggling at times. This whole homeschooling thing has it's challenges. We have toured and Caspar has spent some time at their new school. It's a lovely place, a Montessori school right on the river. Children can attend up to 15 years, which I think is equal to grade 9 or 10. Observing the older classrooms has made me feel really excited for the future, to know that a Montessori schooling doesn't have to finish at the primary level. It's really opened my eyes. I know many people consider Montessori for younger children or even just preschool but Montessori has so much more to offer.
I wanted to share a few links with you if you have time for some Montessori reading.
Here is a treasure trove of articles useful for parents at Montessori Services, lots about practical life and a few enjoyable articles about baking with children. I really hadn't thought about baking with premade pastry but I think Otis would enjoy it.
I totally freak out when asked to be interviewed and I usually decline! But who can say no to Baan Dek? Here is an article where I was interviewed by the lovely team at Baan Dek Montessori - Spotlight: How we Montessori.
When I look for Montessori (in the home) inspiration I often click over to Montessori on the Double.
Here is a sneak peak of how the children's study is coming together, it's actually a really fun space to be in (as pictured below, we recently put a big crafting table in the middle of the room - it's working out well) and Otis (pictured above) doing some shape work.
I hope you have a lovely weekend!
