Abstract/Notes: The present study reports on the use of (or lack thereof) textbooks in three different elementary level mathematics teaching methods – the Hejny method, the Montessori method, and the traditional approach. The aim of this study was to find out if the teachers, using the different teaching methods, use textbooks while teaching mathematics and if the textbooks play a key role in their classrooms. Analysis of interviews with six teachers showed that using textbooks depends on the teaching method. With the Hejny method and the traditional approach, textbooks (workbooks) are followed. On the other hand, teachers see them as the source of inspiration in the Montessori method.

Abstract/Notes: Problem Statement: Further studies on Montessori teachers are required on the grounds that the Montessori approach, which, having been applied throughout the world, holds an important place in the alternative education field. Yet it is novel for Turkey, and there are only a limited number of studies on Montessori teachers in Turkey. Purpose of Study: The aim was to investigate views on the Montessori approach by the teachers who serve at the schools applying the Montessori approach. Methods: Research data was collected by the basic qualitative research, one of the qualitative research methods. Descriptive analysis method was used in analysis of the qualitative data. Nine teachers serving at three different schools in Ankara province applying Montessori approach were interviewed. Findings and Results: Eight main themes were determined upon data analysis; namely, education on Montessori approach, basic qualities required for teachers applying Montessori approach, adequacy of education on Montessori approach, in-service training on the challenges experienced by Montessori teachers, plans of teachers for self-development, following existing studies in Turkey on Montessori approach, views on studies on Montessori approach, and views on the criticisms towards Montessori approach. Conclusions and Recommendations: All teachers confirmed that they internalized the approach upon training in line with Montessori philosophy. They emphasized that they received training covering all the educational fields, yet the implementation dimension was inadequate due to training without the involvement of children. Furthermore, they suggested that all the schools in Turkey were opened by commercial motives, and as such these schools failed to comply with the standards of the institutions providing education on the basis of Montessori approach. They asserted that all criticisms towards Montessori approach would be proved to be groundless upon implementation of the approach. It was seen that experienced supervisors, in-service training, and scientific studies on Montessori approach were required.

Abstract/Notes: Studi ini merupakan Diskursus mengenai Prinsip, Pendekatan Dan Metode-metode Pembelajaran Yang Relevan Kepada Anak Usia Dini. Adapun kategori anak usia dini adalah masa usia emas (golden age) untuk menanamkan nilai-nilai rohani dan pembentukan karakter serta memperkenalkan mereka dengan pengetahuan dan keterampilan dengan sederhana. Studi ini dilakukan dengan metode deskriptif melalui penelitian literatur yang berkaitan dengan pendidikan anak usia dini dengan menelaah prinsip, pendekatan proses pembelajaran dan metode-metode pembelajaran terhadap anak usia dini. Hasil studi memperlihatkan adanya dua pendekatan proses pembelajaran yakni dari golongan interaksionisme dan kategorial yang masing-masing berorientasi kepada anak sebagai subyek pendidikan serta bermacam-macam metode pembelajaran yang menekankan peran anak untuk memahami, menangkap dan mengetahui apa yang hendak diajarkan oleh guru kepada mereka. Karena itu, satuan pendidikan PAUD dapat menggunakan integrasi atau kombinasi antara pendekatan dari golongan interaksionisme dan kategorial. Demikian pula, satuan PAUD dapat menggunakan beragam metode yang relevan dengan memberikan penekanan bahwa anak-anak usia dini sebagai subyek pendidikan yang perlu diberikan rangsangan untuk menolong mereka bertumbuh dengan utuh (holistic/comprehensive approach) baik rohani, karakter, pengetahuan dan keterampilan.

Abstract/Notes: In traditional education, Mathematics has always been a great challenge to learners, maybe because it is taught as abstract from early years. On the other hand, the Montessori Method uses the hands-on approach in teaching numeracy from early years. This study therefore compared the traditional approach and the Montessori Method in the teaching of numeracy in selected public schools in Delta North Senatorial District. Two schools and four classes were purposively selected in Ika South, of Delta North Senatorial District. Twenty five pupils were selected for each approach in the two schools. At the end of the study, the children in the Montessori class performed better on the numeracy test than those taught with the traditional approach. It was concluded that hands-on approach enhances understanding of numeracy from early years. It was therefore recommended that the teachers in the schools in Delta State should be retrained on the use of hands on activities in the teaching of numeracy in early years.
