THE MONTESSORI HOME

 


Babies have genius potential. A child's gift of genius is developed through much nurturing in the home.

CONTENTS

The following is a sampling of the articles featured in The Montessori Home. Click on "Link to all articles" under a column heading to see the complete table of contents for that column.

Early Learning Pathways

Child brain development research confirms the absorbent mind. 'Young children absorb information like a sponge!' Montessori, Doman and Shichida methods, and other early learning methods, that take advantage of the absorbent mind stage are examined and explained to parents to help empower them to focus on early learning in the home.

READING PREPARATION IN INFANCY
The first phase of the 'absorbent mind' stage (birth - 3 years)

MAKE LEARNING TO READ PLAY
The second phase of the 'absorbent mind' stage (preschool)

PHOTOGRAPHIC MEMORY AND THE IMAGE BRAIN
According to Dr. Mokoto Shichida, young children have the capacity to develop photographic memory because the right brain is dominant in early childhood. To develop photographic memory, Shichida recommends showing the baby large numbers of flashcards at a fast pace. WARNING: Because of interference with child brain development, this should be done by hand, not from a (heartless) computer.

The Montessori Home

Preparing the home environment for optimal child development, and applying Montessori's principles in the home.

SENSORY EDUCATION
It is through the sensory functions that the child lays the foundation of his intelligence. The Montessori learning materials are widely acclaimed as being invaluable to this purpose. (Montessori refers to her learning materials as "didactic materials". The word ‘didactic’ means designed or intended to teach.)

MOTOR EDUCATION
Educating the child in his movements is the basis of motor, or muscular, education. Montessori proved that this is the key to countering naughtiness and unrulIness, as well as developing coordination and grace.
