Bliss

Or: Why I love my Montessori School

After our P/T conference with the kid's teachers, in which mr. delagar and I and the teachers all actually conferred about what was going on with the kid, and how she might be bored, and that might be why she wasn't doing the work anymore, the teachers have changed the way they are teaching her.

Is this not so cool?

The approach they were using wasn't working. So they changed it.

Now she doesn't have to go through all the language boxes -- just two or three, to show she knows them. Then she can move to the next level.

Now she doesn't have to use the "materials" (I don't know what this means, it's something in the Montessori method) when she's doing math -- she can use the white board. (I don't know what this means either, but it has filled the kid with bliss.

The result? She's doing her work again.

I knew it had to be something that they were not doing. She is way to smart to be doing that level of work.
