(Pictured Above) Our new schoolroom. Yay! Getting closer and closer to organization. This will be our schoolroom for the next four months, then it will be time for us to move again. (Pictured Above) We’ve had this Ikea easel for a very long time. I store the color pencils in glass jars.(Pictured Above) Our reading corner. I struggled with the calendar situation a great deal until I found this great pocket calendar at Office Depot. I like that you can switch the colors of the numbers so that the odd vs. even numbers are highlighted. We have lots of children’s books in our family room. It’s nice to be able to isolate a few books to be read during the work period.(Pictured Above) I isolated these works for my youngest son, but they are equally accessible for my older son, if he’d like to revisit some of his old work.(Pictured Above) I set up two shelves for my oldest son’s work. (Pictured Above) Compound Word Activity. This activity includes three baskets: 1) One basket of objects representing 5 sets of root word combinations 2) A basket of picture cards showing the compound word resulting from the combinations 3) A small basket for word strips (blank) and complete. When the lesson is presented, the words can be written on the blank strips in front of the child and then saved so that the child can work with the strips alone. I also created a sort of equation- Root Word+Root Word=Compound Word.These cool little math gnomes are kept on the math shelf. I found lots of ideas for making these math gnomes on Pinterest. Also on Pinterest are ideas for Waldorf drawings. Whenever I place a new drawing on the easel board, my son copies it into his work journal. I like how each math gnome has a poem that can be memorized to remember the function of the mathematical signs. There are stories which can be told to accompany the gnomes. The gnomes spend lots of time trying to figure out how to disperse the magical gems! These math gnomes have been a fun supplement to our Montessori math work.(Pictured Above) Our botany and zoology shelf. (Pictured Above) Invertebrate and Vertebrate Work. I found some beautiful cards here at The Helpful Garden. I dug through my collection of miniature objects and found enough object that can be matched with most of the cards.The cards can be sorted with or without objects.I put red and yellow colored stars on the back of the cards for self-checking.
