A few weeks before the beginning of each new school year my heart beats a little faster and the excitement builds.
Some mothers are feeling guilt about not getting to every single thing all the way to the end. We want our children to really learn what they are studying and gain skills for the future. Since I learned a long time ago that putting stuff like this on paper gets it out of my worrying head, I like to schedule the whole year out ahead of time. Each Sunday night or Monday morning, I look at our calendar and think about the different children, consider illness, my monthly cycle schedule, and other mitigating factors.
Once again if Mother is being a drill-sergeant instead of a firm, kind encourager, she may not be building the type of relationship with her child that she wants for the long run.


I won’t brag about the cool schoolrooms of my past, because quite frankly, our studying is just as successful at the dining room table, on the floor, or on the couch. Reminding me of my eternal and earthly goals, these resources serve to bring an element of peace to my anxious mind.
But when there is no separate room, things can get to be quite a mess without some basic organization, habits, and rules. So about a week before we intend to have our first official day of “school,” I begin getting everyone up 5 min. Although we do not want to emulate the public schools or make excuses, we should remember a few examples from our old public school teachers. Unlike the book on the library shelf, the covers of which shield the contents, our lives cannot be closed.


Bringing their box into the dining room each morning, the children each kept their box in their bedroom closet. Montessori type equipment is stored on shelves in the children’s rooms, dining room, or in a nearby closet.
