Basic Montessori

Basic Montessori

For more than a century, Dr. Maria Montessori's educational philosophy has been adopted by schools around the world. Based on her scientific approach to child learning through observation and experimentation, the Montessori Method champions a classroom where children are encouraged to interact with their environment and develop their own natural need for knowledge.

In Basic Montessori, David Gettman has devised a clear and modern explanation of Montessori's revolutionary ideas about early intellectual development, offering a step-by-step guide to the learning behaviors most commonly used with children under-five. These include activities for introducing reading and writing, counting and decimal concepts, science, and geography, as well as activities that help develop the child's practical and sensorial skills.

A perfect primer for teachers, child caregivers, and parents, this volume shares this essential program to help adults discover how their children learn.
