Back to Work

Your children won't be inspired to do much if their environment is chaos. It's a practical idea for life in general, but it's an important tenet of Montessori. Part of the process is, in fact, seeing organization in your surroundings. The children didn't receive new curriculum with this latest overhaul of their school room, but they've been invigorated with an enthusiasm for their work that I haven't seen for a while. Needless to say, I am happy with that.

  1. Great job creating a workable working space - just what I needed to stay inspired as I tired of working on achieving the same space for Eli and I to share!

  2. That has always been the struggle with this particular room. Before we moved here I had my own study/office because I worked from home. Even when I was on the computer for recreation, I found I didn't like being separated from them. But incorporating my office into the school room was almost worst. Now we all share the space and because they're older, it feels less frustrating.
