Welcome to the Montessori in Action page! There are many aspects of our school that we feel words just don’t do justice. We have created this page to show and celebrate just how hard our kiddos and staff work to create the peaceful, loving environment that we have at our school.
Each month we will share a part of our Montessori world so current parents can enjoy a glimpse of what everyday Montessori is like and for all others to take a peek at what makes a Montessori child’s day unlike any other! Thank you for visiting, we hope you enjoy.
Featured this May is the United States map puzzle. As you may or may not be able to tell, each puzzle piece has a small knob on the top. The purpose of this knob is as the child naturally picks up a piece they are strengthening their pencil/writing grip. Whether the child is already writing or has just begun to explore the concept, practice makes perfect in a child’s world – especially at this age! In addition to pencil grip, the child can begin to recognize the different state placements and the continent as a whole. Enjoy!
Featured this month is the Long Rods Maze. The purpose of this “work” is to create the ability to differentiate and memorize dimensions of the rods. This particular apparatus is part of the Sensorial area of the classroom and has a purpose of mathematics preparation. We hope you enjoy this demonstration…this work is fun and a favorite of the kids at our school!
