3rd YEAR PRIMARY - KINDERGARTEN
“This is what is intended by education as a help to life; an education from birth that brings about a revolution: a revolution that eliminates every violence, a revolution in which everyone will be attracted towards a common center. Mothers, fathers, statesmen all will be centered upon respecting and aiding this delicate construction which is carried on in psychic mystery following the guide of an inner teacher. This is the new shining hope for humanity. It is not so much a reconstruction, as an aid to the construction carried out by the human soul as it is meant to be, developed in all the immense potentialities with which the new-born child is endowed.”
Dr. Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind

Note: In our Montessori classroom, children are free to choose the order of work they want to do. These lessons have been previously presented. During the course of the day, children are allowed to choose the same work. Children repeat activities until they reach a satisfaction that is intrinsic. This is when what they've learned is meaningful.
Teachers observe the children's work and act as a scaffold to their learning. In the beginning, there will be assistance. Then, slowly the teacher leaves the child until the child can do the work independently.
Allow time for rest in between activities. It's only when children misuse a work to hurt someone or themselves with the material that teachers interfere. When children take a rest, they are thinking. That pause allows the brain to relax and recharge for the next activity.
It's ok to repeat an activity. It's ok to make a mistake. It is part of learning. Repetition will lead to mastery.
