It’s hard indeed to resist the Google docs, especially when only $200 laptops can be made available to each students. Here at Franklin School, M. got her own at the beginning of the school year and she has enjoyed it from day one.

Interestingly enough, the New York Times published that article last week: “How Google Took Over the Classroom”!

All the best,

When I did my Montessori teacher training, I was in awe of the way math was taught and how the materials demonstrated mathematical operations and concepts. I learned more about what I didn’t know about math than I ever could have imagined. I honestly didn’t realize that a square number built a square, a number cubed created a cube, … It was an incredible opportunity.”

My own experience with Montessori math has led me to a fascination with a subject I thought I hated. I hope you will want to take a look at a Montessori-inspired theme that I share on the following site.

Best.
