Montessorians tend to throw around these confusing specific-to-Montessori terms, and a lot of homeschooling parents have a vague idea of the themes but that’s it. A few months ago, someone commented on one of my posts: “What does ___ actually mean? I see a lot of Montessori accounts using it but I can’t figure it out.”
And then an idea was born — What if you could find out exactly what some of these Montessori Buzzwords mean AND how to practically apply them in real life, all from your favorite Montessori-trained blogger?!
I put a poll up in my stories to see what terms you were most confused by or maybe knew the surface-level definition but weren’t sure what to do with it from there… and then I put together the 10 most common Montessori Buzzwords and how to apply them in your homeschool environments in a new webinar!
We’ll learn all about:
- How to set up a PREPARED ENVIRONMENT
- What it means to be a PREPARED ADULT
- The PLANES OF DEVELOPMENT — specifically the first plane of development from 0-6
- The SENSITIVE PERIODS from age 0 to 6
- Debunking some myths about the Montessori 3-hour WORK CYCLE
- What NORMALIZATION means and how to achieve it in your homeschool environment
- How to recognize and make it through FALSE FATIGUE
- How to SCAFFOLD skills
- How to include a CONTROL OF ERROR in your work to set your child up for success
- The IMPORTANCE OF MOVEMENT and how to prioritize that in your prepared environment
Not only that, but I wrote up a workbook with questions to consider, space for you to take notes, AND 3 printable worksheets/activity guides:
- Prepared Environment Checklist
- Activity Guide for the Sensitive Periods from 0-6
- Scaffolding Worksheet
