Montessori is a method of education that is based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning, and collaborative play. Dr. Maria Montessori discovered that experiential learning in this type of classroom led to a deeper understanding of language, mathematics, science, music, social interactions, and much more. Most Montessori classrooms are secular, although the Montessori educational method can be integrated successfully into a faith-based program. Montessori method is a good method in progress our child’s motor skills.
Every material in a Montessori classroom supports an aspect of child development, creating a match between the child’s natural interests and the available activities. Children can learn through their own experience and at their own pace. They can respond at any moment to the natural curiosities that exist in all humans and build a solid foundation for life-long learning. The Montessori method helps every child develop essential skills already within them to master the creative learning process all through their life. It is all about helping them develop the skills essential for success, not only in school but also in life. Some materials that should be provided in Montessori are, Math, Science, Language, Practical life, sensorial, and culture. In Montessori, children are free to choose or play the apparatus, but the teacher or the parents have to put the rules of each material. Before the children play with the materials, the parents or the teacher have to present or show them how to play with the materials, then let them work on it and we observe them. The children might do some mistakes at the beginning, and let them use their senses to understand the mistake. The materials should be in order, organized, and neatly.
