Dr. Montessori's Own Handbook (Dover Books on Biology, Psychology, and Medicine)by Maria Montessori
Synopses & Reviews
One of the truly great books on early childhood development, Maria Montessori's illustrated guide was written nearly a century ago in response to thousands of requests from American parents and teachers. In it, the noted educator provided copious information on how to use familiar, simple, easy-to-obtain classroom materials to make any home an effective learning environment. It was to be a "children's house," where youngsters would be their own masters, and free to learn at their own pace.
Sound cylinders, sandpaper letters, and numerical rods became features of the typical Montessori classroom. Designed to hone the childs visual, auditory, and tactile perceptions, tools such as these enabled the child to experiment and learn through the powers of observation, recognition, judgment, and classification.
An essential teaching aid for parents and educators, this handbook features sections on teaching music, arithmetic and language, and developing sensory and motor skills.
Valuable guidelines for turning a child's home into an effective learning environment, plus useful suggestions for stimulating and honing a youngster's visual, auditory, and tactile perceptions. 43 illustrations.
