Montgomery Academy Toddler Version: Painting

Last week, the toddlers were busy drawing and playing with salt dough. This week, they painted and drew, although I only have pictures of Little Boy.

Looks like fun!

I just finally had time tonight and go back and read your whole blog from the beginning. I really enjoyed it, thank you. I am going to be reading closely to see how your Well-Trained Mind/Montessori/etc., combination goes (or keeps going I should say). I love that book and think about ways a classical education and a Montessori education can be combined often. All the details you provide make it easy to see one way that can be accomplished.

Thank you for all your kind advice and feedback over at my blog.

Wow! I'm impressed! Thank you for reading it. I used some Montessori with the elementary children because that is what I had been used to with the preschool children, but I have much less knowledge/have done less reading, etc. on Montessori at the Elementary level, so I didn't feel comfortable going with a strictly Montessori Elementary curriculum. I was also starting with children that were either at the end of lower Elementary or at the beginning of Upper Elementary and hadn't had any Montessori since preschool. Plus, it seemed easier at the elementary stage to do some blending of curriculums, so that is what I have done.

I love your blog too!
