Abstract/Notes: El trabajo en la modalidad de Memoria Laboral denominado “Aprestamiento de la Lectoescritura con Material Montessori en el Nivel de Educación Inicial en Familia Comunitaria”, surge de la inquietud de dar a conocer el trabajo realizado a lo largo de estos catorce años en la Unidad Educativa Montessori; donde se reafirmó la filosofía, se reestructuró el método y se implementó el adecuado manejo de los materiales. Para lograr un aprendizaje significativo en el proceso de la lectoescritura se deben utilizar diversas metodologías que contribuyan a ello. Inicialmente, si se tiene en cuenta que, al trabajar con hechos, acontecimientos y actividades del medio sociocultural, se está desarrollando en el niño un gran sentido de pertenencia con la sociedad, también se favorece el desarrollo de los procesos lectoescritores, pues al trabajar con situaciones reales que estén presentes y que hagan parte de la vida del niño/a. Se busca generar en el compromiso y sobre todo interés por actividades tan importantes como lo son la lectura y la escritura. Para esto hay que crear en el niño y la niña la necesidad de desarrollar dichas actividades no solo en sus procesos educativos, sino también en la vida y para la vida. Las actividades de aprestamiento para el aprendizaje de la lectura y escritura son básicas y de mucha importancia. El aprestamiento para la lectoescritura con material Montessori, tiene como finalidad iniciar un proceso de intervención que ayude a prevenir o superar problemas que puedan incidir negativamente en el desarrollo del aprendizaje del niño o niña. El método Montessori impulsa principios educativos como la libertad, la actividad y la autonomía; da gran importancia a la autoeducación y al docente como guía del proceso de enseñanza aprendizaje, éste propone material didáctico auto corrector que contribuye a lograr una "educación sensorial completa y graduada”.

Abstract/Notes: The purpose of the inquiry was to understand how children in primary grades (i.e., preschool, kindergarten, and second grade) engaged with affordances and constraints of features in a Base-10 Blocks virtual manipulative mathematics app designed to promote learning opportunities. Researchers conducted one-to-one interviews with 100 primary grade children as they interacted with the Montessori Number Base-10 Blocks iPad app. The video data were qualitatively analyzed using open descriptive, thematic, and structured coding. Results show that children’s actions when interacting with app features can affect their engagement with designed mathematics constraints and affordances. Results also identified three emergent themes around children’s engagement with the app’s simultaneous linking features: verification, self-correction, and making connections. Findings suggest the importance of helping children identify and reflect on affordances within virtual manipulative mathematics apps. These findings also indicate that as designers, educators and researchers design or select virtual manipulative mathematics apps for classroom use; they should to consider children’s prior achievement as well as in-app perceptions and engagement with design features in the apps.

Available from: St. Catherine University

Abstract/Notes: This action research was conducted to examine the effects of peer discussion groups on the comfort and confidence of lower-elementary Montessori teachers in conducting literature based anti-bias lessons. The intervention was conducted in a private, urban, Montessori school, serving students from toddler to middle school. The participants of this study were five first-third grade teachers, including the participant researcher. Data was collected through pre- and postintervention surveys, teacher post-lesson self-assessments, transcription coding of discussion groups, and researcher self-reflection rating scale and journal prompts. Three discussion groups were scheduled two weeks apart, with teachers giving literature-based, anti-bias lessons between the first and second discussion groups and the second and third discussion groups. Data indicated that teachers became more comfortable and confident in their anti-bias teaching practice and that the discussion groups created a space for reflective dialogue. The action plan suggests that this intervention could have a farther reach if it were conducted for a longer period of time, across a wider age range, and in multiple schools.
