Montessori teaching aids
A quiet working atmosphere is prepared by the teacher. From his observation, he proposes to each child an activity that matches with his/her curiosity, need or learning desire. The material invented by Maria Montessori enables the child to practice the acts of daily life, prepare his/her hand to writing, permits to use sens and curiosity, approach to mathematics, geography and biology.
In the structured environment of the classroom, children move as they want and choose the material they wish to use. They follow their own rythm and can concentrate more easily, they develop their own will, self confidence and autonomy. Children are encouraged to listen to and respect each other, following the rules of grace and curtesy when moving, speaking, respecting the others.
