Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. Simone Davies is a Montessori teacher who is sharing with parents who have been teaching their toddlers at home. She has a Web site…www.themontessorinotebook.com, where you’ll find free resources, online courses and a podcast. She’s also written a new book …The Montessori Toddler…
“Montessori is very holistic…it’s about a hands on way of learning…so instead of adults saying this is what you need to learn today, instead we’re looking at the child and observing them and seeing what they’re interested in. So you set up activities that you see they’re interested in. If they’re starting to post things to each other you say oh, I’m going to make a posting toy.”
Perhaps turning a cardboard box into a mailbox. You should know Montessori doesn’t encourage much in the way of screen time for little ones. That said…the site again for parents is www.themontessorinotebook.com.
