Montessori Stamp Game - although some say good to use up to grade 3 I find it great for getting back into the groove of math (for all grades) and learning not to be overwhelmed by math problems that have 4 digits - great for adding, subtracting, multiplication and division.
We use many free print out projects from Montessori websites including this Compass Rose project and as you can see we do most of our work on the floor - similar to Montessori classrooms
a geography project we worked on this week - geography and learning about the whole world around us is an important part of the Montessori approach
the latest project I started (I have several unfinished but needed to change it up a bit) - a lap blanket in some chunky wool that has colors that reminds me of stormy seas - perfect for cozy evenings on the couch here in England on the seafront
we also made it to Chichester with our friend Alexi to explore an open air museum of an old village, a great outing that we all enjoyed (a post on that later) and a tuesday and sunday full of rugby. The boys are figuring out the game bit by bit, are adding new bruises and are having fun with the rough and tumble of being boys. A full week of fun and work indeed - Cheers
