Have you heard of the term “normalization” in Montessori? Normalizing and child means that a child is comfortable and confident with his or her environment.

It means that he or she has reached a level of confidence and independence for the day to run smoothly and for the child to thrive. You can read more on this in my post on how to build your confidence to teach Montessori at home.

Why You Should Teach Montessori at Home

5 Do Montessori Work Daily, even if it is only for a few minutes or only one work per day

One of the ways to normalize your child is to do Montessori as often as possible without reaching a level of burnout for you more for the child. It is important to begin Montessori slowly but very specifically having goals in mind.

One of those goals is normalization of the child and actually, normalization for you as well because everyone needs to get used to the Montessori method in order to feel comfortable in it and for the day to flow smoothly.

The best way to normalize the child and to adjust to the new work environment is to work on Montessori daily. When I say daily, I don’t mean all day long. I mean doing Montessori every day during the normalization period. You can start out with just a few minutes a day as your goal or you can start with doing just one Montessori work per day, beginning to end.

This is very important in order to ensure future successes. Children will adjust and get used to the Montessori method the more they work on it, so be sure to get in a few minutes every day and work your way up to about three hours of uninterrupted work time.
