I need help! We just went from public school to a Montessori/home school hybrid school this year. My son is in 4th grade but doing 6th grade work. Which is one reason why we moved schools. But, the problem we are having is deprogramming from public school ways to montessori ways. For me and him. He has always done well in school. He learns quickly, does the work, never had to ask for help, etc. We switched because he was bored and not challenged enough. Now he is getting the challenge academically that he has needed but we are also seeing so many gaps that he needs filled. He isn't getting his work completed at school which is so unlike him but I think it is because he is lacking certain skills that he has never had to exercise at school before. Time management for one. Asking questions for help is another.
I need a Montessori mentor to help me with the transition so I can help him. Anybody out there?
