Montessori-in-the-home-Activities for Parents: Activities that can be structured for the child in the home

Logo

The intelligence of your child depends on the order, richness, variety, appropriateness of his environmental experiences and of the perceptions possible for him at a given moment.

To open the door to improved performance - so the child will utilize his CAPACITIES - we must find ways of changing a child’s convictions from “I can’t” to “I can”… herein lies one of Montessori’s major contributions.

Try out some of these activites when you're at home with your child:

  • Greetings and introductions
  • Pouring beans, rice and water
  • Preparing soil for planting
  • Climbing up and down a stepladder              
  • Washing and cutting apples
  • Setting the table
  • Thinking of words that rhyme
  • Putting stories on a tape recorder
  • Matching pictures

Understanding the Principles Behind the Montessori Educational Model

Montessori History

For more than a century, the ideas of Maria Montessori have been helping children grow and develop into thoughtful, creative people who are fully engaged with the world around them. The Montessori method has spread far and wide to more than 20,000 schools around the world, but it continues to stand firmly on the same principles laid down by its founder. These principles include:

Self-motivation. Children are naturally curious. If given the opportunity, they will happily spend hours learning about the world around them. At a Montessori school, a child will be guided to activities that foster learning, rather than being taught that “learning” consists of memorizing answers. They will not only learn more; they will also develop a love for learning.

Self-pacing. Unlike schools that confine learning to clearly define time-frames, the Montessori method holds that children learn better when they are allowed the time to concentrate. Rather than being whisked from math to science to reading in the space of a few hours, a child is permitted to focus on one activity at a time at an uninterrupted pace.

Peer-to-peer learning. While children at a Montessori school learn self-reliance and independence, they also learn to work with others. In a Montessori classroom, children of various ages will work closely together, with the older students helping the younger students. This not only makes for more effective learning, but also teaches children how to live and work effectively in communities.

A sense of order. A Montessori classroom provides a focused, orderly environment for learning. Although the students may be working on different activities and at different paces, they are working in what Maria Montessori called a “prepared environment,” which provides them with all the tools they need to learn and a suitable atmosphere for education.

If you want to ensure that your child receives the best education possible, then consider the value of a Montessori school.
