Our school (and the Montessori Method in general) is focused on helping children become happy independent learners. The picture and letter below is a great example of a Montessori classroom in Action.
As Mary and I were working with children this morning, we noticed that around 10:45 they began to gather and read together as you see in the photo. This came purely from the kids. Mary and I finally just sat and watched them from afar. If it weren’t for recess they would have continued as is. That my dear parents is a thriving, beautiful Montessori environment! They surely didn’t need us. These are the special moments I live for.
