The Montersorri educational method is famous for encouraging children’s creativity. There are also a wealth of other benefits to choosing this form of teaching. Montessori teaching encourages cooperative play, helps children to learn self-discipline, and is more effective in teaching particular skills.
It also focuses on key development stages. For instance, children aged around four-year-olds work on fine motor skills and do activities like arts and crafts. This teaching method is highly individualised for each student, with each child learning at their own pace.
One of the joys of the Montessori teaching methods is the toys!
Walk into any Montessori classroom and there’s a treasure trove of lovely toys. Designed to encourage kids to experiment and develop their fine motor skills, these sensory toys are designed to be physically handled by children.
They tend to be much more beautiful than the average children’s toys. Such toys are usually made of high-quality and natural materials. Designed to attract a child’s attention, they should fully engage them in performing activities.
Plastic is a big no-no with this form of teaching because of the harmful toxins that reside in such materials.
