    My son was born very prematurely and had significant developmental delays as a result Sitting, crawling, walking, talking, etcall significantly delayed This has been a blessing in disguise as I believe I am the type of parent that would have focusedon superficial knowledge, believing my son s ability to rattle off ABC s at age 2 was a sign of learning understanding I have always imagined I would send my children to a Montessori school, but naively believed it wouldn t be suitable for My son was born very prematurely and had significant developmental delays as a result Sitting, crawling, walking, talking, etcall significantly delayed This has been a blessing in disguise as I believe I am the type of parent that would have focusedon superficial knowledge, believing my son s ability to rattle off ABC s at age 2 was a sign of learning understanding I have always imagined I would send my children to a Montessori school, but naively believed it wouldn t be suitable for a child with special needs On the contrary, when we learnedabout the history and intent of the Montessori style of teaching it became clear this is exactly the type of method we needed At age 2, we began to introduce Montessori style methods as did my son s therapists to some degree in addition to maintaining our habit of reading with him daily and talking virtually non stop Within 6 months, his receptive lanuage delay went from an estimated 9 month delay to 0 Almost 1 year later, his expressive language delay is almost non existant when at one point he was approximatey 12 months behind Other developmental delays such as fine motor remain minimal as well I say all of this not because Hainstock s book helped us to accomplish this, but to emphasize that I am already a great supporter of the Montessori method Now on to the book I believe this book dated as it is provides a great summary of the method along with excellent ideas for making Montessori style teaching tools for the home The activities are age appropriate and do not emphasize superficial knowledge that I believe is the focus of many pre k programs parents today You can easily incorporate these activities into your child s day, even if they are in daycare It doesn t require expensive toys or equipment, and it doesn t promise that your baby will read by age 2 or 3 It does help your child learn the what, where, why, and how along with independence and ownership of tasks

    I liked this book because it is filled with some great ideas for developmentally appropriate activities for young children Most of these activities beat toys from Wal Mart any day Plus, you can make most of the activities from materials from around your home Cheap ways to effectively educate Yes It is easy to read and all of the activities are simple to set up Part I of the book describes a little bit about the history of Montessori It reviews the life of Maria Montessori and how her meth I liked this book because it is filled with some great ideas for developmentally appropriate activities for young children Most of these activities beat toys from Wal Mart any day Plus, you can make most of the activities from materials from around your home Cheap ways to effectively educate Yes It is easy to read and all of the activities are simple to set up Part I of the book describes a little bit about the history of Montessori It reviews the life of Maria Montessori and how her methods developed It also gives a brief idea of how to set up a school like environment in the home Part II is filled with activities for ages ranging two to five and are catered to hold a child s attention span over a short period of time The activities are organized and easy to follow with step by step instructions that include materials needed, how to demonstrate, the purpose of the activity, and why it helps teach a child how to problem solve

    Education need not be imposed on the child given a learning environment he will be free to act and to develop himself along the lines of his own inner direction Thus Montessori felt that there must be freedom within the prepared environment to develop his physical, mental and spiritual growth The young child is very hand minded, and the materials are geared to his need to learn through movement, because it is movement that starts the intellect working The true Montessori classroom is functi Education need not be imposed on the child given a learning environment he will be free to act and to develop himself along the lines of his own inner direction Thus Montessori felt that there must be freedom within the prepared environment to develop his physical, mental and spiritual growth The young child is very hand minded, and the materials are geared to his need to learn through movement, because it is movement that starts the intellect working The true Montessori classroom is functionally arranged for the child, enabling him to work, move and develop freely The room itself and all the furniture in it are proportioned to the child s size his coat is hung on a low hook, and the materials are arranged on shelves that are easily accessible Children are allowed to proceed at their own pace and the classes aren t graded Montessori believed that each child has cylces of activity that should be allowed to be worked through and completed without interruption When they leave Montessori style of learning they will take with them a strong sense of self, an independent person, and use creativity in working and learning as a healthy thinking individual.A young child s curiosity is insatiable, and he should have unlimited opportunities for observation, movement and exploration Take them with you to meet people,places and things They want to learn and don not think of it as work or something unpleasant Learning should be fun and a constant source of interest to the young child If you take the time to teach them to do things for himself, the rewards will be great for both of you You need to resist the temptation to always help if you care about their future well being Children are too often being forced to submit to a curriculum in an environment where the teacher makes all the decisions, while the children suffer

    I wanted to learn a bit of background about montessori teaching, and stumbled across this book at the library Published in 1968, some of it is a bit outdated For practical life training the Bissel Little Queen set is ideal it contains an apron, carpet sweeper, mop, broom, sponge and dustpan It may be found at any toy shop or obtained with trading stamps But overall it has a brief yet thorough history of Maria Montessori, an outline of how and why montessori is taught, and tons of great I wanted to learn a bit of background about montessori teaching, and stumbled across this book at the library Published in 1968, some of it is a bit outdated For practical life training the Bissel Little Queen set is ideal it contains an apron, carpet sweeper, mop, broom, sponge and dustpan It may be found at any toy shop or obtained with trading stamps But overall it has a brief yet thorough history of Maria Montessori, an outline of how and why montessori is taught, and tons of great learning activities The best part is that all of the activity supplies can be made if you have the time especially effective if you don t have any trading stamps laying around

    I ve checked this out from the library before and skimmed it, but I read through the whole thing this time and I m going to buy it The exercises aren t to difficult to do at home and the equipment isn t too unusual or specific This looks like a great way to add the Montessori method, and some of it s benefits, at home if you, like me, can t afford to send your children to a Montessori preschool.This book is a great place to start, but I d recommend further reading on the subject if you re inte I ve checked this out from the library before and skimmed it, but I read through the whole thing this time and I m going to buy it The exercises aren t to difficult to do at home and the equipment isn t too unusual or specific This looks like a great way to add the Montessori method, and some of it s benefits, at home if you, like me, can t afford to send your children to a Montessori preschool.This book is a great place to start, but I d recommend further reading on the subject if you re interested in the Montessori method

    I read this, but it wasn t really helpful for me because I was never able to make it work I didnt understand the how and why I just decided I might as well go get certified and took an accreditted 40 credit hour program and feelstrongly that this book poorly represents montessori and the lessons I appreciate the attempt, but the layman attempt made by the book really missed the mark for me I wasnt able to implement montessori methods at my home with it.

    This book was written in the 60s and it has a funny tone to it very authoritarian and kind of angry I did like the ideas at the end on how to make your own montessori materials and I plan to try some.

    If reading Maria Montessori s books are a little bit hard, then this book will be great for you It gives succinct reasons for giving a total body education with great tips on how to apply the Montessori Method in your home on a limited budget.

    This book was an easy read mostly because most of the book is activities to do with your children to teach them skills at home before they enter school I really liked that they focused on real life skills such as dressing and cleaning.
