Hi! My name is Jae and this is my blog about the learning adventure of my two kids. We do a lot of Montessori and Montessori-inspired activities, printables , hands-on learning, nature studies and outdoor activities. Before our oldest son was born, I came across the idea of Early Childhood Education. I've read a lot of articles about it and its benefits that I was inspired to try it with our new baby.
Our homeschool journey started when we moved to a country in the Eastern Europe. Mavi was only 10 months old and we started by just reading a lot of books everyday. Then around 18 months, I started giving Mavi some activities that would developed his fine and gross motor skills, reading and math literacy. It was so effective as Mavi learned how to communicate well at an early age. He got to know his alphabets and numbers by the time he turned 2 years old and was able to read at 3 years. Mavi attended a Montessori preschool when he was 4 years old and loved it. By the time he turned 5, we were blessed of another little boy named Vito. And just like his big brother, Vito is trying to follow the path of Mavi's homeschool journey.
I love being with my kids, enjoy playing with them and doing a lot of adventures outdoors. We also love to sing and dance together! We do that a lot at home and I am thankful that our house is soundproof. Crossing continents, travelling to other countries, discovering beautiful places, visiting museums and parks are our thing.
I created this blog to journal our activities. This blog used to be private, but because of the good that this homeschool has brought us, I decided to share it to inspire others. This is a way of showing my gratitude to the community of bloggers that have shared and given me wonderful ideas on homeschool learnings.
Lastly, I am not a teacher. I am an Electronic Engineer and I used to work as an Integrated Circuit Design Engineer. I have no formal training in early childhood education nor in Montessori. I write out based on my own experience from home educating my boys. All that you see in my blog are mixtures of my ideas and those from other homeschool Moms.
