In school Ken discovered more divisibility rules on her own. DJ is multiplying up a storm. and Michelle is so pleased with how well Teaching Textbook has prepared her to be promoted in Algebra 1 at the Academy. Having half days was a good call considering how much was added to our daily lives.
I have tons of photos to share of what I have been up to. It has been my personal goal every since the kids started being homeschooled to have all of children that I guide together sharing a space. I tried sharing my living space as a school room. but that didn't work!! Too many unforeseen things happened that I wasn't ready to really give up my life! I know it wasn't actually giving up my life:) But that is what I felt like after adding many rules to keep my privacy intact. Then the kids wanted their own office space and it worked, still I was very busy running in and out of rooms to keep the lessons flowing. Now the preschoolers and my kids are at a place where they can respect each others work space and materials, I am so happy about this.
It is not easy to accomodate Montessori materials in the space that I have. I will be rotating materials as soon as they are mastered to be able to bring out new work. It is something that I look forward to doing and all the kids are happy about these changes to our environment. It was not an easy task to figure out where everything would go!!
In the hallway I have our Sensorial materials and Physical Science activities.
The math work resides on the right hand side of the wall and on the back wall.
