A wonderful insight into the life of Maria Montessori.
I have to admit, pinterest has the risk of becoming highly addictive…but I find the ease at which I can sort, organise and add things (and I’m a very ‘visual’ person)…. makes it very efficient…and I love seeing that others have tagged/liked/shared my collections, and it’s so easy to find new stuff using those connections!
Delighted to share that Simone Davies of Jacaranda Tree Montessori in Amsterdam has started a new website for Montessori parenting…
“Helping you to apply Montessori principles in daily life, answer your Montessori questions and, in 2015, follow my Montessori workshops online.”
Her first video has already arrived on the web…
Letter written by Maria Montessori commemorating the opening of the first Casa dei Bambini:
I started my work like a peasant who had put aside good seeds of wheat, and to whom a fertile piece of land had been offered so he could sow it according to his wish. But it was not to be. As soon as I moved the sods of that earth, I found gold, rather than wheat. The sods were hiding a precious treasure.
