Joyful Scholars: the elementary years……..
Montessori education allows children to be active participants in their learning – which is exciting, memorable, and fun!
It allows children to continue to develop naturally in a safe setting that fosters social interaction and provides motives for research and classification, granting freedom with responsibility, choice with accountability.
“For the role of education is to interest the child profoundly in an external activity to which he(she) will bring all his(her) potential.” M.M.
The elementary child asks great questions and we set up an environment to facilitate finding answers. The vehicle of exploration is the child’s imagination which we excite by offering the “Great Lessons” in story format.
The Creation of the Universe
The Coming of Human Beings
The Story of Communication in Signs
The Story of Our Numbers
The Story of the Country
These stories offer the framework of Cosmic Education which is the term used to describe the elementary curriculum. Dr. Montessori believed that, “In the cosmos there is harmony. Everything there is in it, both the animate and inanimate, have collaborated in the creation of our globe, correlating in doing this, their single tasks.” Presenting the six Great Lessons and underscoring the interdependence and interrelatedness of life forms and events – is the central organizing theme of the elementary.
Stories, time lines, impressionistic charts, experiments, and demonstrations are used to get the ideas across and to inspire research. The child is set free to explore parts of the story after glimpsing a vision of the whole. Key lessons follow the “Great Lessons” in the fields of biology, history, geography, earth science, math, and language.
Elementary students store up a great wealth of knowledge which is interrelated. Working with impressionistic time lines and charts, children are given opportunities to view the whole picture, research details, classify elements thereof, see relationships, make discoveries, and share. They engage in collaborative projects and work at their own pace.
Going out trips are scheduled for the purpose of getting more in-depth knowledge from society’s resources.
This way of learning is both memorable and fun! Lifelong friendships and a love of learning are trademarks of a Montessori education.
