Our week

Hope everybody had a wonderful thanksgiving weekend! We had a great time sharing feasts with friends and family.  I am personally thankful to my wonderful husband and all that he does for us.  He has taken upon the full responsibility of providing for us, because of which I get to do what I want to do most, raising our beautiful daughters.

Last week was short, but a very productive week at our homeschool.  Here are some pictures of D in action.  D completed a big work last week, Reading Folders sort.  

Here she is checking her work using the control of error on the back of the phonogram cards.

In the next few shots, D is working on the cylinder blocks, monomial and binomial cubes.

Here she is working on the Writing Exercise I posted about earlier.

We've been working with Nouns and Articles in our grammar farm.

In Math, we worked on addition with carry over and subtraction with exchange using golden beads and D loved it.  Here is a picture of few of her completed problems.

She also worked on some sewing and here is her finished product.

We worked on a lot more, but I don't have pictures of everything.  All in all it was an awesome productive week!

I am linking this post to Montessori Monday.


  1. Love your sewing project - did you use shelf liner? I recently saw this on Pinterest and have not tried it.

  2. Yes, we used a shelf liner on an embroidery hoop. D loves this work, gets taken out everyday!

  3. What rich, wonderful work your children are up to.

  4. Thanks to all of you for stopping by and leaving a comment!

  5. I love the idea of embroidery. I knit, and my son (3) is always wanting to help. He can't do it yet, but he's good at beadwork, so this would be an awesome mix of the two. Big (blunt) needle with wool, and the shelf liner with beads. Thank you!

  6. Your daughter is doing such wonderful work! And I love the way you've created a grammar farm! Thanks so much for linking up with Montessori Monday. I featured your post at the Living Montessori Now Facebook page:

  7. I admired the job with the reading folders work. Awesome!

  8. The farm looks so inviting. Have you thought about someday taking the Montessori training. What a thrill to see all this lovely work.

  9. Thanks meggin, deb and Barbara!

    I would love to take the training, sometime in future though!

  10. Wow... you guys are up to some fantastic work!!!
