HI all- I've read through the other homeschooling thread but have some questions... We homeschool our ds who is almost eight ( 2nd grade). I'm interested in learning how I can incorporate Montessori into what we already do. We are quite eclectic- earthschooling, waldorf, and trying MBTP this year. I deliberately held off on most academics, but ds is gifted and I think this might help him with focus and meet his need for information! What do I start with for a child this...

Earthschooling! You get TONS of material, and with a lifetime membership you get every grade she has, plus videos, verses, and whatever gets added
We like lakeshore learning for most of ours. They have great sales and discount coupons, so we buy then. We also have this http://www.lakeshorelearning.com/seo...es/viewall.jsp which we got for half off with a coupon- and it has just about saved my sanity! We get a ream of white 12x18 drawing paper, and it lasts a long time.
Am I the only one amazed at this? Isn't that sort of young to just go out without anybody watching to see if he arrived/was welcomed wherever he was going? Even in a safe neighborhood I would think he might need to be in somebody's sight....?
We have Planet Earth, and Ds thinks its boring It is a bit on the slow side. What about Schoolhouse Rock, or music dvd's like Raffi in concert? Peep in the Big Wide World and Signing Times....
We stayed here http://www.northconwaygrand.com/ recently and loved it! Great pool area, playground, and outlets right next door. There's a pizza place right next to the pool area, too. They have free kids movies in the evenings and free ice cream w/ toppings after dinner. They have a large breakfast buffet for $10 ,and kids eat free with a paying adult. We will definitely go back again.
I can totally understand you asking! I had the same concerns when we attended a parent child program and considered moving closer to attend the school full time ( we didn't, and now homeschool). I think every school is different, though. At our school there are definite expectations which are subtle, sometimes not so much. I used to cringe when my little one acted up, (which he did there often but never anywhere else) because it was insinuated that we spoke to him in a way...
