This short, illustrated guide to the use of Montessori classroom materials describes how to set up a "children's house"--An environment for learning where children can be their own masters. Frames, geometrical objects, colored numerical rods, and many other items are familiar features of any Montessori classroom, and Montessori explains how to use them with preschool children to stimulate their powers of observation, recognition, judgment, and classification. She stresses that each child approaches the apparatus differently, while the role of the adult is to let the child experiment, perceive his own mistakes, and run his own risks in learning

(2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy

The Montessori method by Maria Montessori ( Book )
38 editions published between 1912 and 2014 in English and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Maria Montessori's method of educating children, which she details in this book, is based on a conception of liberty for the pupil; it entails formal training of separate sensory, motor, and mental capacities; and leads to rapid and substantial mastery of the elements of reading, writing, and arithmetic. "The Montessori Method" is important because it springs from a combination of sympathy and intuition, social outlook, scientific training, intensive study of educational problems and the author's unusual experience as a teacher and educational leader. Following opening statements from J. McV. Hunt and Jaan Valsiner, Maria Montessori discusses topics including pedagogical methods used in the children's houses, discipline, diet, gymnastics, manual labor, education of the senses, intellectual education, methods of teaching reading and writing, language in childhood, and teaching of numeration. This classic volume in the education of children takes on urgent relevance for parents, teachers, and administrators in all parts of our society
