The phrase Montessori Life has many meanings for me. One is the way that families incorporate Montessori into their homes. This can be developed by placing children’s belongings on organized low shelves, having healthy self-serve snacks available and creating activities children can do independently. Montessori Life also refers to how Montessori teachers approach their work with children by carefully preparing their classroom environments, teaching with respect, joy and wonder.
In addition, Montessori Life is the award-winning magazine of the American Montessori Society. It is filled with articles and helpful information for teachers and parents. This spring’s issue has one of Twin Parks Montessori School’s students on the cover. The photograph was taken by John Roemer, classroom assistant.
