A Glimpse of Life at Montessori School

When I first began this blog, it was to keep a digital scrapbook of sorts, to remember the little Montessori things we did as a family.  Madeline had transitioned to traditional schooling, and we did some things at home with a Montessori twist.  Then, when the twins went to Montessori School, we turned our home focus on home.   We just snuggle, read, and create open ended art.

As one of their 5 (yes, FIVE trained) Primary Teachers, I was able to snap a few photos throughout the year with my smartphone.  Overall, I took over a thousand photos, but just this handful without my other students for privacy reasons.  These two were ALWAYS working with friends, so the moments were few.  Next year will be KINDERGARTEN (Primary THREE)!!!!

This summer, we will do plenty of reading, counting, art, sewing, and cooking.

What a unique view I get.  Feeling blessed as summer begins.  I GET TO TAKE TWO HOME!
