Five days of foundational Montessori topics
This 5-day workshop goes beyond the weekly, 20- to 30-minute trainings I give you almost every Thursday.
The Montessori Way Foundations Workshop is a Montessori teacher training that many Montessori administrators recommend to their staff because of the quality.
Many administrators count these 5 hours as professional development hours for them.
Yes! It is THAT deep and THAT good!
So, whether you teach at Montessori schools or at home, of you are interested in The Montessori Method, then you will want this free resource!
I only comes around a few times a year!
It is a well-planned training.
I don’t like to waste my time and I don’t like to waste your time, so I thought long and hard to give you the foundational things that you need to get started or to give you a great refresher.
During this free 5-day workshop, we focus on 5 foundational topics that revolve around 3 very important results that together, will give you an incredible tangible transformation.
These 3 very important results are for you to:
- Become a centered, organized Montessori Guide
- Nurture happy, normalized children
- Create smooth, successful Montessori days
Let’s discuss what the 5 foundational topics in the workshop are and why you need to enroll in it.
Day 1: The 4 Pillars of The Montessori Philosophy
You will want to know these four pillars if you are following or interested in following the Montessori educational approach.
They will open your eyes and will also keep these in the forefront as you teach the little ones.
It will give you opportunities to develop some great teaching ideas and skills with a multi-aged classroom.
Day 2: The Prepared Environment
In this training, we will be discussing how to set up your Montessori classroom or Montessori environment.
Because it is important to know how to set it up so children can have freedom within limits in the Montessori learning environments.
“The child has a different relation to his environment from ours… the child absorbs it. The things he sees are not just remembered; they form part of his soul. He incarnates in himself all in the world about him that his eyes see and his ears hear.” ~Maria Montessori
Day 3: Behaviors of Normalized Children
You will learn how to know the best way in which students learn.
You will learn what it means to be normalized.
And you will also get a list of some of the tell-tale signs that children are or are not normalized.
It is important for you to teach children how to problem solve correctly.
You will also learn why Practical Life is the subject that will shortcut the child’s path to normalization.
“Free the child’s potential and you will transform him into the world.” ~Maria Montessori
Day 4: Your Job as the Montessori Guide
The Montessori teacher is also called the Montessori Guide.
We will talk about the different types of Montessori Guides there are and determine which one you resemble most.
It will be kind of like a quiz! How fun!
It is important for you to know what your education philosophy is within the Montessori sphere to gain better understanding of your goals.
Day 5: Your Next Step for Success
As you complete this training, we will discuss some of the most important things that you can do next.
If you are new to the Montessori approach, you will then make a decision on moving forward.
And if you are seasoned in the method, you will gain a fresh view on Montessori materials, lesson and more as you determine what your next steps are.
Regardless, you have all of the potential to be successful.
“If education is always to be conceived along the same antiquated lines of a mere transmission of knowledge, there is little to be hoped from it in the bettering of man’s future.” ~Dr. Montessori
