Montessori Homeschool Summit

I have a very exciting announcement for those of you interested in Montessori homeschooling, if you are getting started with homeschooling, or are just interested in Montessori! I invite you to participate in the Trillium Montessori Homeschool Conference

2017 Montessori Homeschool Summit 

This conference is such an amazing opportunity! You can connect with other like minded homeschoolers, Montessori enthusiasts, as well as opportunities to win some amazing prizes! 

Seemi the director of Trillium Montessori has organized this amazing online conference. You can stay at home and get insight from professionals and experienced homeschoolers on exclusive Montessori homeschooling advice! 

I am so honoured to be able to participate in this conference as a presenter, sharing my experiences and skills in raising my son in a multilingual home (he speaks and understands four languages fluently).  

What you get

There are several wonderful topics and presentations during this four day conference! The summit features four different tracks that you can choose from: 

  • All access ($69)
  • Primary level ($35) 
  • Elementary level ($35) 
  • Specials track ($35) 

The All Access pass features 14 presentations that you can watch when they go live, or log in to view afterwards if you miss them. Personally, I love that we can watch the videos afterwards - with two little ones, it's easy to get distracted or busy doing one thing or another. Having the chance to go back to watch the presentations at a convenient time is such a relief!

This summit is an amazing opportunity not only to expand your knowledge about applying Montessori to your homeschool, but will also give you a chance to connect with like minded individuals, learn where to access amazing materials, and you will have the chance to win some wonderful prizes, freebies, and bonuses! You don't want to miss out.

Don't forget!

Have you  enrolled? I cannot wait for this conference! How about you? What are you looking forward to?

Arctic animal cutting strips

We have had such cold weather lately! It's inspired me to quickly whip up a few arctic and winter themed activities. Today, I am sharing our arctic themed cutting strips - a new freebie that you can download to practice scissor skills with your little ones!

Y has loved cutting works since he was about two years old. He started using scissors and snipping with printables like these then. After a short while, he mastered using scissors safely!

Snowman shape matching freebie

Brr! It sure is getting colder and colder here. We've even had freezing temperatures! Of course, there is no snow in sight yet. It makes me so nostalgic for the beautiful, white Christmas' I had loved so much in Michigan. The Netherlands is a wonderful place to live, but the weather really isn't all that great. 

Inspired by the snow I miss so much, I have been so busy making winter and snowman themed printables. Maybe that will inspire some real snow and Y can make a real snowman. In the meantime, we'll be enjoying our printable snowman. Well, and perhaps we'll make some fake snow soon!

Play dough is a wonderful toy! Children love to explore with it, play, and create. Aside from being so much fun, there are so many wonderful benefits to including play dough activities and invitations in your children's play (or school) activities.

Christmas Color Cards for Toddlers

We are definitely in the holiday spirit around here! Yesterday, we had a lovely Sinterklaas celebration (St Nicholas Day). I always know it's December and the holiday season when all of the St Nicholas Day festivities begin. It's always afterwards that we set up a Christmas tree, and have a family oriented Christmas, followed by a large New Year celebration. 

Between all of our cultures and backgrounds, there are so many holidays for us to celebrate in the month of December - it's a fun and hectic time of year! 

We're still enjoying our Christmas themed works! I'm excited to be sharing freebies and new Tot Labs products for you guys from now until Christmas! Today, I am sharing another printable for tots - we have some fun Christmas tree color works!
