We’re finally back in the school room this week. The last of the construction to repair the basement (including the school room) after the major flooding that happened in a bathroom was finally finished Friday afternoon, and we spend the entire weekend setting everything back up. It’s now almost 11 PM and the last of the finishing touches was done to the room to get it all ready to start tomorrow.
This year, things are a bit different. We are still doing tot school with Bug and Montessori-inspired preschool with Monkey. New this year is that we will begin homeschooling Jedi for 2nd grade. He was previously at a Montessori school, but due to several factors (including the teaching style at the school no longer working with our son due to his having autism), and now we are giving homeschooling a trial run. We always have agreed to continue a particular educational style only as long as it was in the best interest of the child, so when Jedi really started struggling and falling behind at school, we had to make a change. This change might be permanent or temporary, depending on whether it is still in Jedi’s best interest. Right now, he’s very excited to get started!
So, next week we will be back with our regular weekly review posts. Today, I leave you with the updated tour of our school room. Most of it will look familiar to those who have been here for awhile, but there are a few updates…mainly our 2nd grade learning shelves.
