Updated: Apr 8, 2022
I am so excited to bring back my "Montessori Home Tour" series! My first interview of 2021 is with Gigi of Instagram account @_mommy.g_ . I have been an admirer of Gigi's for a while. Her posts are always a combination of inspirational and relatable. I can't wait for you to read about her and her home. Let's get started...
Tell me about yourself...
Hi! My name is Gigi, I am a SAHM, homeschooling and applying Montessori method at home with my two daughters (Faith 3.5 years old & Peace 3.5 months old) . I am originally from Hong Kong. After I married, I moved to North America with my husband 8 years ago. Parenting challenges me to learn and do new things every day, allows me to work hard and be creative, and also gives me the opportunity to serve others in a very meaningful way… which is most everything I ever wanted in a job. The best job I ever had :)
How old are your children?
Faith 3.5years old & Peace 3.5 months old.
When did you first learn about Montessori?
We started applying the Montessori method at home a year ago. (2020)
How have you created a Prepared Environment in your home?
We have activities shelves, movement area, snacks station, outdoor activities area, entry way, self-care station, reading area and morning preparation station( closet). I built these areas based on Faith's interest and tend to focus on sensorial and practical life works. For baby Peace, we are now having a little movement area for her with her mobiles and grasping toys.
What are your favorite activities to do with your children or to watch your children do?
I love watching Faith and do practical life works with her, to make her feel like she is part of our family is so important to me :)
How do you deal with toy/activity/material storage and rotation?
