THE MONTESSORI PRE-PRIMARY 3-6 CLASSROOM
Montessori materials possess definite purpose, order and self-correcting properties. The following areas are in all of our Montessori Pre-Primary Classrooms:


PRACTICAL LIFE
While children work at activities such as washing dishes or sweeping the floor, they gain experience in caring for themselves and their environment. At the same time, they are developing concentration and a sense of pride in their work.  To read more about the Practical Life area of a Montessori classroom, click here:  The Montessori Pre-Primary Classroom: Practical Life 


SENSORIAL MATERIALS
Many physical materials are used to guide children to recognize, sort, classify and understand their world.  To read more about the Sensorial area of a Montessori classroom, click here:  The Montessori Pre-Primary Classroom: Sensorial 


LANGUAGE AND MATH
As children
exhibit readiness, language and math materials are introduced. The materials are designed to guide the children to progress from concrete to abstract concepts.
