One mom's adventure in Montessori homeschooling.
Former teacher, self-training Montessorian, in my 8th year of homeschooling; now homeschooling my 2 kids and 1 from another family (he's a 16yo who would like to be referred to as "Bob"), AND looking after my 2 nieces, 5yo and 2yo.
You know, she might have! Had them focus on nature or something.I sat kind of thinking about it after I wrote--I kind of saw her sitting down somewhere (inside, outside, didn't matter) and telling stories or singing songs, in a gentle, loving way. Or maybe just chatting with them. Getting them settled, then as she saw them ready to move on, might have done some lessons or directed them to something else.Of course, I didn't do any of that. :/ I was trying to catch up on laundry and whatnot. I'm thinking I need to reschedule my own time during the days to really maximize my time with all of the kids.
