    Ha ha ha, sounds like some of what I’ve resorted to for almost the exact same reason. Have you been watching my house?

    How fun to get to teach it differently.

    Mackenzie taught herself to read at an early age so I didn’t get to teach her at all. Kayleigh is just starting and it’s been fun trying different stuff with her. It’s quite different from when I was a classroom teacher.

    Amen! I can’t tell you how much I agree with your theory. Good thing J-jo has such an intuitive mom. I shared your post on the Montessori MOMents facebook page. facebook.com/MontessoriMOMents

    It’s so nice to have the time, resources, and desire to cater your each child’s individual learning styles into their education. Even though I have all girls, they all learn differently. I had a similar epiphany with my middle daughter when I realized she wasn’t going to learn the same way as my oldest. I blogged about it here– http://www.teachingstars.com/2011/03/17/heavy-learning/
    I can’t wait to see what kind of learner my youngest will develop into. Keeps us teachers on our toes, no?
