Here are my top Montessori principles which can be used whether you own traditional Montessori materials. These principles are important for practically any preschooler. To me, they match with natural learning because they meet youthful kids’s natural needs without needing a special material.
GIVE YOUR CHILD AS MANY CHANCES FOR HANDS ON LEARNING AS POTENTIAL.
It’s important your preschooler has tangible, hands-on experiences before learning abstract notions.
STRESS PRACTICAL LIFE AND SENSORIAL ACTIONS IN THE PRESCHOOL YEARS.
Practical life tasks for care of self, care of the environment, control of movement, and grace and courtesy help your child develop autonomy, concentration, coordination, and sequence. Actions to refine the perceptions give indirect training for academic learning.
PRESENT HOW EXACTLY TO DO A ACTIVITY.
Don’t anticipate your child to understand the right behavior without having it presented first or to automatically understand the best way to do something.
