About this item

Description



Book Synopsis



For more than a century, Dr. Maria Montessori's educational philosophy has been adopted by schools around the world. Based on her scientific approach to child learning through observation and experimentation, the Montessori Method champions a classroom where children are encouraged to interact with their environment and develop their own natural need for knowledge.

In Basic Montessori, David Gettman has devised a clear and modern explanation of Montessori's revolutionary ideas about early intellectual development, offering a step-by-step guide to the learning behaviors most commonly used with children under-five. These include activities for introducing reading and writing, counting and decimal concepts, science, and geography, as well as activities that help develop the child's practical and sensorial skills.

A perfect primer for teachers, child caregivers, and parents, this volume shares this essential program to help adults discover how their children learn.

"A good reference tool for everyone wanting to know more about or intending to try the Montessori method whether they are parents, teachers, or day-care personnel." --Library Journal
