I know I shared before that I feel very blessed to have a wonderful “classroom” space in our home. It really is a nice space and the children are content when working.
I do my best to introduce lessons as I observe they are needed and I know in my heart that I am doing a good job.
Sometimes when I am observing I think about what it would be like for my girls to be in a regular Montessori classroom with many other children & different teachers/guides. Do any of you ever think about this?
This summer we had the opportunity to visit our dear friends in Florida! Colleen from Sunrise Learning Lab is also a trained Montessori teacher with a “classroom” in her home. I was so thrilled that my little girls had the opportunity to see another classroom & be introduced to some new “works” by my dear friend.
As I observed my girls I almost had tears in my eyes – I was proud that they used the skills they had learned at home (such as getting out a mat, respecting the materials etc) but I also loved watching how they interacted and worked with Mrs. Colleen! I loved that they had the opportunity to try out many new works that we do not have in our home!
- What tips do you all have?
- What works and does not work for you?
- For those of you who do Montessori or homeschool, do you ever have these same feelings of wondering what it would be like to be with another family or in a school environment?
I would love to hear your thoughts!
(Next week I will be sure to post about our Brown bear, Brown bear work – the girls just LOVE it!)
