Abstract/Notes: The classroom behavior and academic achievement of 32 educable retarded children (EMR) with a mean age of 11.24 years were studied in two types of open classrooms, graded and multi-age, and compared to that in a special education class. The three different instructional environments were found to generate characteristically different patterns of classroom behavior over a four-month interval as measured by time-sampling procedures. The results generally supported the assumption that open-space, integrated classrooms facilitate greater social interaction on the part of EMR students. The frequency of task-relevant behavior was higher in the special education class compared to that found in the two open classrooms. All three groups of EMR children made comparable gains in academic achievement. (Author)

Abstract/Notes: This study aims to investigate the impact of daily moderate to vigorous physical activity on preschool and kindergarten-aged children’s on-task behavior and focus. The research took place over four weeks in a Montessori early childhood classroom with 15 children aged three to six. Each day, children participated in 12-15 minutes of physical activity, including running, jumping and marching, vigorous enough for them breathe hard. The researcher used both quantitative and qualitative data tools to examine effects on ability to focus and to be on-task during the following two hours. The increased movement had a positive impact on the children’s transition to the next activity and on the rate of children being on task for up to two hours. Continued research is needed to determine effectiveness on focus.

Abstract/Notes: Poor dietary habits in childhood can lead to obesity and chronic diseases later in life. Increasing children's nutrition knowledge and liking of fruits and vegetables are key factors in improving diet quality. The purpose of this study was to assess the effects of a nutrition program on knowledge, liking and intake of fruits and vegetables in Montessori students. Clustered-randomized control trial conducted in a Southeastern US Montessori school. Children aged 4-6 years old (intervention, n = 22; control, n = 29) participated in a 4-week nutrition education with taste testing of 12 fruits and vegetables. Nutrition knowledge, fruit and vegetable liking, and intake were measured with questionnaires, and analyzed using repeated measures analysis of covariance and descriptive analyses (SPSS v.23); significance defined as p < 0.05. Controlling for covariates, significant between group effects for nutrition knowledge (F = 24.16, p < 0.001) and liking tomatoes (F = 7.01, p = 0.01) were found. The intervention group increased vegetable intake (Hedges' g = 1.01) compared to the control, although it was not significant between groups (F = 1.95, p = 0.17). Initial examination of this program indicates that it was effective in increasing knowledge, vegetable liking and intake for young children in the sample. More research is needed to compare outcomes between educational delivery methods.
