Series Summary

Some people don't give children the credit they deserve. Rather than treating them as independent human beings, some think that kids can't be self-directed, especially when it comes to education. While this may be true for some children, there is a great deal of danger in teaching a child that they are incapable of self-sufficiency. However, there is an educational method that empowers children with self-directed activities. Founded in the late nineteenth century, the Montessori method teaches children to do their own learning. Once an idea or object is introduced to a child, the teacher calmly steps away as the “silent presence” in the classroom. Invented by Maria Montessori, the method was originally used to help children that were thought to be unteachable. Through the process of working with these children, Dr. Montessori discovered a way for kids to learn through the five senses, kinetic movement, spatial refinement, motor skill coordination, and concrete knowledge. The atmosphere is pleasant for children, and they interact with the world in a natural and peaceful way. In this free video series, learn how Montessori improves senses in preschoolers. Our expert, Tami Elliot, is the owner and a teacher at a Montessori school. She walks you through all kinds of activities to improve sight, smell, touch, and hearing. With these simple activities, your preschooler will be able to improve the way they react to the world. So, what are you waiting for? Learn about Montessori sensory activities today!
