Lori at Montessori For Everyone asked her readers to share some kind of resolution they were making for the new year when it comes to education. I really liked this question because it is goals that I needed to write down to help me focus. I tend to want to do everything with the kids and in the end not do any one thing right! After thinking about it, I decided that I wanted to focus on two things:
1. Work harder at speaking more Spanish in the home. I am going to concentrate on surrounding myself with more Spanish in my life so that it will then overflow to my children. For example: I already listen to all Spanish Music. My kids therefore can sing in Spanish. My husband and I started to attend activities at the Latin Cultural Center. This surrounds us with Spanish speakers which then naturally allows us to speak Spanish around them and to them.
2. Work on teaching the kids about our religion. Last year my son attended a Catholic school so I just left it up to the school but now that he is not at a Catholic school I need to do this. I joined the Catholic Learning Yahoo group which has GREAT files to download that follow the method of teaching Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. I am excited about the children and I learning together!
So, do you have an educational resolution? I would love to hear it!
