  1. The school year is off to a phenomenal start for my older two children (8 and 6). My youngest, however, is feeling really left out. I had planned for her to sit in with her siblings as much as she wants, with small activities for her to do during our longer lessons (finger paint/lauri toys/etc). She is also doing ETC primers, Singapore Essentails Math, The Reading Lesson, and Rod and Staff ABC workbooks. The problem is, she finishes her math worksheet in a few minutes, while my olders work on math for 30-45 minutes, and I am typically in and out of working with them during that time. All the w
  2. I've checked the other toddler threads and can't find what I'm looking for. I just started doing full school with my K'er today and that left my 2.5yo high and dry for a playmate. This little guy is fabulous about playing on his own but I can't handle the aftermath. He's a walking tornado. So...can anyone suggest some activities for him that don't require me to help him with but will keep him occupied for more than 5 mins? We have pattern blocks and he likes those but he needs some variety. We also have a myriad of buiding toys but I need something new that is special for school. I l
  3. If you were to pick 1 or 2 must-read books on Montessori education for 3-6 year old, which books would you pick? What would be the top toys/ activities that you would recommend to buy or make for a 3-4 year old? Any tips, tricks or advice on a homeschool Montessori education?
  4. This isn't really K-8, it's more for the preschooling forum that doesn't quite exist here, but bear with me: I'm imagining a book that explains how to do a series of food prep/cooking/baking projects with little kids. Ideally, this book would have a series of recipes of increasing difficulty, it would recommend tools and techniques appropriate for toddlers, and it would suggest "extensions" that would reinforce concepts and skills. I'm thinking of like a foodie version of The Read-Aloud Handbook or Young at Art. Any ideas?
  5. Guess I should know the answer to that one, but am looking for some extra inspiration. I have an extremely active and curious little boy who basically wants to get his hands on everything and is pretty inquisitive. He can only occasionally sit still for a book so I am really looking for something hands-on and some computer suggestions other than Starfall...
  6. I'm stumped about what to do with my toddler while I teach. He just turned two. As soon as he notices we're doing school (about 2 mintues into it) he wants to join us. This usually involves his opening markers and drawing all over the table, spilling our books, making silly faces, and constantly interrupting. I've tried letting him "quietly" do "school" on the side, but it doesn't work. He constantly wants my attention for something. If all else fails he asks to go potty knowing I'll stop. What do you do with little ones? I'm expecting a baby soon too so it can only get worse. :001_smile: I kn
  7. Other than learning about art through books and music, can I get some art/craft ideas? Or a good place to find them? I'm artsty, but when it comes to actually setting aside time and doing something, it seems daunting. I'd like to set aside an hour a few times a week for some creative art/craft time, but have no ideas. What do you do/use etc? Thanks. This would be for a 3.5 and almost 6yr old. They love arts/crafts too.
  8. I hope you do not mind me posting here, as my daughter is not accelerated or anything, I just thought I was more likely to get more helpful posts for such a young kid here than on the other board. My daughter is almost two, and she has been getting harder and harder to deal with lately. I know that some of that is just normal for her age and some of it is probably related to having a new baby in the house, but I also know that she is way better behaved and happier when there is something she can do to engage her. But we have zero funds, my husband needs the car to go work/study, and we a
  9. I tried something new with my little guys (3 and 2) today and it turned out to be great fun. I gave them each a block of styrofoam (saved from packaging material) a wooden hammer and some wooden golf tees. I showed them how to hammer the tees into the styrofoam like nails. They absoulutely LOVED it! I have never seen such deep concentration from either of them before. It held their attention easily for an hour - unprecedented for a single activity!!! I'll definitely be giving this activity to Daddy to keep them occupied while I teach the biggers! note- must be supervised! Those golf te
  10. What are some good reads about how to teach preschoolers? Not *curriculum* per se, something more general. I would like to learn more about how young children learn and ways to make it more fun. :bigear:
  11. I am looking for a free website that will give me ideas to do with my son using the letters of the alphabet or numbers. Something that will give him hands on activities. I also would love to find free Montessori or Waldorf activity idea links. Thanks so much!!!
  12. I have started researching the Montessori approach to teaching more deeply hoping to implement certain aspects of Montessori for my younger child. While reading The Absorbent Mind I realized that my other child would also have done well with Montessori. Those of you that have used or are currently using the Montessori approach, could you please tell me what books I should read covering the 6-9 age group? I just picked up "The Montessori Method" from the library and "Teaching Montessori in the Home: The School Years (I own the Pre-School years). Are there any other books I could read for this a
  13. I am trying to get some ideas for keeping the smallest kids busy while I work with the others. I know there have been threads on this before and links to some blogs with great ideas. I must be searching the wrong thing this morning because I am not finding anything.:tongue_smilie: Anyone have blogs, links to old threads, ideas for me?
  14. I am trying to come up with ideas to keep my 2yo boy occupied. We used to have a rice box, which we had to get rid of because of the mess. I would appreciate if everyone willing could reply with at least ONE activity that a 2 yo boy enjoys. I will list some things that we already do. 1. play dough 2. painting with water on construction paper 3. pouring water into containers at the counter with a big towel underneath :) 4. playing outside 5. coloring 6. sweeping 7. blocks 8. dancing w/music 9. books 10. playing with cars 11. chalkboard 12. Individual playtime with sib
  15. My dd2(end of April) wants to learn, but I am not sure what to do with her. She knows her ABCs (song, the letters, and knows A is for apple, alligator for all the letters.) She can count aloud to 10, but also is recognizing and pointing out 2 apples or 4 babies. She can do up to 25 piece puzzles independently. We have done some science skills like measuring and pouring, telling me which things float or sink, and making colors. She knows her colors, shapes, body parts and animals/sounds. I have LHTH, we are doing it at full speed but she needs more. If she gets bored she destroys the house! :
  16. We are not ready for school yet, but I would like to begin a very simple and fun program this September with her. I know I could just play with her, and that's what I want it to look like in her eyes. But I would like to have a loose set of plans for each week. I am thinking of an hour of play in the morning then an hour of play outside in the evenings. I would like this to be learning play time though. So here are some ideas I have started to come up with. Lacing beads and cards pattern blocks read lots of books to her games like Hi Ho Cherrio finger painting play dough listen to to
  17. I am thinking of using a sand/water table and was wondering if anyone had any lists of things to use with it and/or activities? Thanks so much!
  18. I'm looking for some fun learning activities to put together for my 2 & 4 year old. I'm not looking for anything formal, just some things they would enjoy doing, mostly play type activities. They want to do "school" like their big sister. :) I have some ideas for some bean/bead sorting and lacing things, but I would love to hear about some other activities. Any kind of reading/math readiness ideas would be awesome as well. They love building with blocks and do that one thing daily. :) Any ideas are appreciated and I'd especially love some ideas that I could easily put together/make myself
