Barefoot in Suburbia

Homeschooling & Special Needs, Inspired by the Montessori Way

Montessori Monday October 11, 2011

This week and last week have been a whirlwind of Autumn field trips, so I’m a bit behind in posting.  I’ll attempt to catch up over the next few days, but we still have a couple more trips lined up.  It’s time to squeeze all of that “real life” homeschooling in before the wintery weather hits!

Here is the review of Bug & Monkey’s time on the school room last week! 🙂

I brought back out the girls' favorite work from last year--scrubbing the baby! I usually do this right before we go to the pumpkin patch so they can practice on something a lot cleaner than a pumpkin. Both girls love this work and always spend a lot of time making that baby clean.

Monkey using construction paper to learn how to weave


Bug working with a screwdriver


Bug still washing that baby! 😉


This week Monkey was working on writing, copying, and her address, so I made her two copies of a house--one had her name and address on it and the other was the one she copied her own onto.


Bug using dot paint for "D is for Dinosaur"


Bug pouring glass beads


Monkey snipping paper


Monkey pouring water with various containers. This was actually just a spontaneous work because Jedi was using those containers for one of his science labs. Bug decided to take them over and use them for pouring water. 🙂

  1. Doll washing was always a favorite when I was a teacher and when my daughter was little! Your other activities are great, too! Thanks for linking up with Montessori Monday! I featured your post at the Living Montessori Now Facebook page:
