The Diary of an AMI Montessori Theorist
Best of luck in your new home, Susan!regards,Susan from Child's Way, W. Orange, NJ
Congratulations on your new beginning! Hope you enjoy exploring your new home!
Hi SusanI changed schools three years ago - it's a challenge, as I'm sure you realize, getting to know new students, new families, new colleagues...finding out where the paper clips are kept and exploring a new community. Please know you still have us - your virtual community as a familiar place to talk and share, as always!
All the best in your new adventure!
I have a question for you. Everything about the Montessori method I've read says that writing usually precedes reading. Does it ever happen in a Montessori classroom that a child learns to read first? (I understand the early language curriculum pretty well, I think, but I am curious about the "usually" part and if that means that the rare child 'gets' sounding out what he sees before sounding out what he says.)
I just wanted you to know how much I enjoy your blog. My son has been at a Montessori school for 2 years now. He is in extended day this year. Your blog gives me great ideas for activities with our younger two, but also a great insight to the philosophy itself. Good luck with your move.
