Packing a Lunch with Montessori Style!

Japanese Bento Box meals are an example of careful planning, showcasing food as a sensorial experience and highlighting the tactile and visual aspects of food.   In our Montessori classroom, a similar approach is followed - work areas are  orderly and accessible, emphasizing color, simplicity, and beauty.

Are there Teachers in a Montessori classroom?

Dr. Montessori referred to the teacher as a “Directress”.  This title differs considerably from the title and purpose of a teacher in a traditional school classroom.  The Directress is not a teacher because she does not directly impart knowledge to her students.  She guides, or directs the child, according to his own inner needs.
