Our Montessori Environment

A beautiful, organized, and well presented learning environment is critical in the Montessori environment. In any teaching environment, as a fact. However, homeschooling often presents many challenges to the beautiful pictures one is quick to find over the internet. First, we are often limited in the space we can devote to homeschooling. Secondly, children often gravitate to other areas in the house to do their work.

In order to “solve” this problem I have become intentional in what is displayed on the shelves and what topics we investigate at once. That is, I remind myself that I prefer children to investigate in-depth versus breadth. I have two math shelves: one in the dining room and one in the living room. You can tell I make use of every corner of my little house.
