Montessori education is a system of education developed by Dr. Maria Montessori in the early twentieth century. A pioneer and visionary in her field of science and medicine, Montessori used her powers of observation to study how children learn best and to create a philosophy about the true meaning of education. Children learn to be self-directed, responsible and respectful of themselves and others, and to feel confident about themselves as learners and their capacity to learn.
Practical Life activities help to develop motor skills and help to normalize the child. They consist of care of self, care of environment, control of movement and grace and courtesy. They include water pouring, polishing, dressing frames, bead stringing, gardening and many other activities. These exercises help to develop concentration, coordination, order and cleanliness. In addition, the children have a sense of satisfaction when they have successfully mastered an activity.
The Sensorial activities help the child to develop and refine the five senses. He learns the tactile and visual discrimination of size and shape. This enables exploration and discovery through sensorial impressions. Properly developed, these impressions can bring to the child a sense of order and oneness with his environment.
The Montessori materials for mathematics provide a fundamental understanding of number functions. The children are first introduced to the concepts of quantities and symbols, and then introduced to the functions of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
The Montessori materials teach mathematics in a hands-on (manipulative) manner. The children are exposed to such concepts as fractions, algebra and geometry in a very concrete fashion that is easy to understand. This leads to a clear understanding of the abstract concepts which they will study later in the elementary classroom.
