I love the age my son is at right now. Just going on 4, his world has been all about Legos, dinosaurs, and Lightning McQueen for the longest time. But lately, something has changed.
Lately he’s become much more curious about everything and that’s been prompting some interesting questions.
Like BIG questions...seemingly out of nowhere.
Which is great, if you're prepared for them. Leave it to a 3 year-old to go from talking about his favorite flavor lollipop to asking how humans are created.
This is what went down on our drive home from school last week.
When I was considering making the shift from teaching public school to teaching at a Montessori school, I did a little research, looking online and talking to other teachers about the differences between traditional education and the Montessori approach. I read and heard a variety of opinions but, after working in an accredited Montessori environment for about five months now, I've come to see that much of what I heard about the Montessori philosophy, at least at the elementary-middle level, was inaccurate. Here's my take on some of the misconceptions after teaching in the environment for half a school year (already?!).
I'm Krissy & I'm so thankful you're here. Teacher-Mom life is rewarding but it's tough--we need fuel (& each other) to keep going. I hope this is a place you can go that feels like caffeine for the soul--uplifting & highly addictive ;) Check out the categories below and, if you like what you read, subscribe to make sure you always have good Sunday morning reading to go with your coffee :)
