Montessori Monday~ Research
Today Bunny asked me to read a book about Legos and how they were invented. It was a long book, but we read it. She thought it was really cool and when we finished I asked her what she thought was the most important and most interesting thing. She told me that she thought it was interesting how the first Legos failed. They wrapped, became discolored, and didnt stay together. Then they found a new plastic type and added the circles on the underside of the brick. She loved that idea. I am wondering if maybe it makes her feel good that something so awesome started off as something less then perfect. So I asked her to write down her thought and she did. She did a beautiful job. I was inspired by Anna over the The Broad Stair when she talked about how research is done. She said that one child can read the work, one writes the work, and one edits. So I read and edited, and she wrote! It is a system that is working out and she is getting her thoughts out on paper! Now I just need to remember to have her read it back to me! Pup also listened to the book and drew a picture of legos! It was pretty cute!

I’m glad you had such a good first day of the week. Kal-El is excited that Bunny is doing AAS too. We had a TERRIBLE Monday. I think they were a little too sick for a successful day. Yuck.

Well this day may have been good, but the rest of week wasnt quite so good. We were feeling a little under the weather too. Oh well, there is always next week right? I hope you are feeling better! I am glad to see that you are doing AAS too. I think that program looks good!

I absolutely love the idea of one child doing the reading, one doing the writing and the last doing the editing. I’ve never thought of that. Thanks for sharing. Your post was wonderful…as always. 🙂

Thanks so much Lori! I really felt like knowing this could allow some of pressure to be off Bunny to find a way to do all the work herself. Working together has really made some of the tears go away! It is good to hear from you! It looks like you and the boys are having a good time working too!
