Barefoot in Suburbia

Homeschooling & Special Needs, Inspired by the Montessori Way

Lesson Plans for week of 5/2/10 May 2, 2010

Filed under: Preschool — Barefoot in Suburbia @ 4:39 pm

Hey everyone!  We had such lovely weather last week that we took the last week off official school stuff and did a lot of outdoor work in the garden.  Monkey, Jedi, & Bug did a lot of planting seeds and exploring the outdoors…including a close encounter with a coyote!  Yikes!  That was probably not the highlight of our day…seeing a coyote near your three young children is enough to knock a few years off your life, I think.  We also did a lot of unpacking…we probably have just another 2 or so weeks of unpacking ahead of us before we’re finally all settled in from our move.

This week’s Montessori room plan for Monkey for the week is: (And as always, these are the days I plan to introduce the work…she can have it out as long as she wants)
