Here are my top Montessori principles that may be used whether you own traditional Montessori materials. These principles are important for practically any preschooler. To me, they match with natural learning since they fulfill youthful children’s natural needs without requiring a special substance.
SUPPORT AND rESPECT YOUR CHILD’S ABSORBENT HEAD AND SENSITIVE PERIODS.
SENSORIAL AND aCCENTUATE PRACTICAL LIFE ACTIVITIES IN THE PRESCHOOL YEARS.
Practical life activities for care of self, care of the environment, control of movement, and grace and courtesy help your youngster acquire concentration, sequence, coordination, and independence. Actions to refine the perceptions give indirect training for academic learning.
SUPPLY CHILD-SIZE STUFF (AND REAL KID-SIZE TOOLS) WHEREVER POSSIBLE.
Place materials on trays on low shelves, allowing your child the chance to select their own work and to duplicate actions as often as needed.
DON’T INTERRUPT YOUR KID’S WORK. LET YOUR SON OR DAUGHTER DEVELOP AN EVER-INCREASING ABILITY TO FOCUS.
Tests, competition, rewards, and punishments aren’t mandatory. Your child will develop a feeling of satisfaction over work nicely done.
WHEN YOU OFFER A ACTIVITY, CHECK THAT ONE QUALITY IS ISOLATED (FOR INSTANCE, IT HELPS IF JUST THE COLOUR – AND NOT THE CONTOUR – CHANGES IF YOU’RE INTRODUCING YOUR CHILD TO COLORS), AND THERE IS A CONTROL OF ERROR (INSTANT FEEDBACK DEVELOPED INTO THE TASK) WHENEVER POSSIBLE.
If you follow Montessori principles, you are going to help your kid naturally acquire many positive abilities and characteristics that provide a strong basis in life – abilities and traits such as independence, self-discipline, and love of learning.
MAKE APPEALING AND YOUR CHILD’S ENVIRONMENT AS ORDERLY AS POTENTIAL.
An orderly surroundings assists your child in developing brains and mental arrangement.
GIVE YOUR CHILD AS MANY CHANCES FOR HANDS-ON LEARNING AS POTENTIAL.
It’s important that your preschooler has definite, hands on experiences before learning abstract notions.
