What's the deal with Montessori Math?
The Montessori approach, from Primary through 8th grade, enables students to not only master crucial math skills and concepts, but to develop into young people who are confident in their ability to tackle even the most challenging mathematical problems. The below article highlights how Montessori Math differs in three distinct ways from traditional math teachings!
leportschools.com For many people, children and adults alike, mathematics is a bane to be avoided. “Math anxiety” or even “math phobia” is on the rise in elementary and high schools across the country, and perhaps as a consequence, U.S. students notoriously score very low among developed nations on internatio...
"A child in his earliest years, when he is only two or a little more, is capable of tremendous achievements simply through his unconscious power of absorption, though he is himself still immobile. After the age of three he is able to acquire a great number of concepts through his own efforts in exploring his surroundings. In this period he lays hold of things through his own activity and assimilates them into his mind." - Maria Montessori. #MontessoriMonday

“The child’s explosion into writing is closely connected with his special sensitivity for language, and this was operative at the time when he began to speak. By the age of five and a half or six, this sensitivity has ceased to exist; so it is clear that writing can be learned with joy and enthusiasm only before that age. Children older than this have lost the special opportunity which nature grants them of learning to write without making special and conscious efforts of application and will.”—Dr. Maria Montessori. #MontessoriMonday

They include maps of all kinds: different globes, a flat puzzle map of the world, puzzle maps of each continent, and a puzzle map of the United States.

Montessori preschool has much to do with purposefully doing simple daily tasks. This LePort student is preparing a basin of water for washing a table. Notice how all of the materials are red. This color coordination is not only attractive, it serves a purpose -- it gives a visual cue for children to understand which materials go together. This is part of what makes our classrooms a "prepared environment." #MontessoriMondays
