Can You Help Me, Please?

"Can you watch me, please, Mommy?"
"Can you do it with me, please?"
"I'm tired, Mommy, can you help me put this away, please?"
"But I can't do it by myself, I need your help, please."

These were constant refrains in the classroom today, not only from my child, but also Miss K's (although to a lesser extent).

So to all you homeschooling Montessorians out there, I ask you: Can you help me, please?

How do you get your child to cooperate in a Montessori setting when you are the teacher?

Your classroom looks great. It is such a cool thing you guys are doing for your children. I will look forward to reading more about YOUR journey!

It takes a lot of reminders and guidance in the begining but it will pay off in the end. Just keep on top of it. Sometimes I tell Tatum, "I already know how to do it, you need to practice so you can learn." :)
