Bethany and Alexander
I’m Bethany, and I’m mom to Alexander. When he was around age 2, I decided to start teaching him using the Montessori method. I was a high school teacher for 7 years, and I find that I’m organized, proactive, and motivated. I like teaching, and I like the challenge of creating activities for my 2 year old. (After all, a 2 year old is much different from a 15 year old!)
I started exploring Montessori, along with Waldorf, traditional homeschooling, unschooling, and more. And Montessori just felt the most natural to me. Might we change our minds and incorporate other methods? Sure! That’s why this is called Mostly Montessori.
This blog is where I plan to document activities that work for us, classroom setups (to keep track of what he likes and doesn’t like), and it’s also a place where I can keep up with his progress. Down the road, it may be where I keep more detailed logs of his progress for the purpose of reporting to the state of Georgia. For now, it’s mostly for me and my family.
Enjoy! And please comment and ask questions about anything you see here!
