So, we've recently decided to pull Ben (6) out of public kindergarten & homeschool him. Sophie (4) is at an awesome Montessori preschool, and I'd really like to take this approach with my son. I'm a bit intimidated, since we might only be doing this for 5 months (and then re-enroll him in 1st grade), and the cost of buying Montessori supplies is HUGE. I've ordered a spring Montessori curriculum to help us out, but it's tough starting 'halfway', when most schools begin at age 3. Anyone been through this & have some general advice or good websites to peruse? Should we just start at the beginning & see where we end up? He can read small words, is good at sounding out, and writes fairly well, if that makes a difference. Any help appreciated!
