The “Absorbent Mind”

The “Absorbent Mind”

“Our work is not to teach, but to help the absorbent mind in its development work. How marvellous it would be if by our help, if by an intelligent treatment of the child if by understanding the needs of his physical life and by feeding his intellect, we could prolong the period of functioning of the absorbent mind!” – Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind

 

The Coloured Globe and the World Map

The Coloured Globe and the World Map

While singing the continents song, the kids will identify continents with a specific colour representing each continent.

They noticed the continents on the Coloured Globe and the World Map are the same colours, giving the child that ‘aha’ moment of recognition.

In a Montessori classroom, we bring the world to the children through real-life experiences.

Montessori and Chinese New Year 2022 Year of the Tiger

Montessori and Chinese New Year 2022 Year of the Tiger

If we are to preserve culture, we must continue to create it.

As Chinese New Year is approaching, children were exposed to some traditional activities.

From calligraphy, paper cutouts, and decorating…children were introduced to the meaning behind each item and things they did during the process.

As 2022 is the year of Tiger, we wish everyone to stay strong and healthy like a tiger!

The Project to Help Children Gain Some Confidence.

Scrapbooking is a great way to create something unique and keep it with us for the rest of our lives. We scrapbook everything about the leaf we learned for the past four weeks during our Culture online. Scrapbooking is a favourite pastime amongst kids worldwide because it allows them to make something that they can keep and test their creativity. With all the available digital data and technology, there is something about having a physical copy of something that one creates.

Culture studies about leaves their colours, shapes, and naming each part of a leaf. Children’s interaction with paint to emphasize the leaf’s veins is always a success! Learning about plants, where children can observe changes as the seeds begin to sprout and grow over time and record their observations on the recording sheet!

Our young child has probably seen or heard about farm animals even if we live in a city or the suburbs, miles from the nearest grazing cow. Perhaps we’ve sung “Old MacDonald Had a Farm” or read a story featuring sheep, ducks, and horses. It may sound like simple toddler fun, but learning this vocabulary at a young age helps our child develop savvy pre-academic and social skills.
