Yes, today. We don’t have any of those newfangled devices like iPhones or iPods so I have no use for this freebie, but it sure looks good! Daryl always says our blog should be titled “One step up from the Amish.”
These are my favorite Montessori principles and ones I’ve always tried to incorporate here. (Trivia tidbit: I attended a Montessori school in California until first grade. My mother enrolled me in preschool there at 3 so I could skip kindergarten and enter first grade at age 5. I hated traditional schools but I loved Montessori.)
We had so much fun with this! Why is it that if I try to teach my kids anything traditional with math they act as if I’m performing dental work without anesthesia, but every time I find something like short division or Russian Peasant Multiplication they act like I’m handing out chocolates? Anna actually asked me for more pages of it the next day — twice. It’s odd fun.
All my thoughts and favorite answers to a really ridiculous question.
