Abstract/Notes: Examines reading, writing, and mathematics for older primary children within the Montessori setting. Emphasizes normalization and engaging links with the prepared environment, focusing on how discovery moments in reading and contexts for learning around culture create natural conditions for learning. Asserts that the guided discovery approach means careful planning and direction for the child and that adults must know the passages and meaning of each activity the child chooses. (Author/KB)

Abstract/Notes: This study investigated the impact an oral storytelling component had on students’ story writing. The study took place over six weeks in an Elementary classroom at a small independent Montessori school. Eight Lower Elementary students (ages 6-9) listened to stories told by the teacher, or orally told ideas for their stories, prior to thirty minutes of story writing. Also, approximately halfway through the study, the students participated in a storytelling workshop conducted by a professional storyteller. Data sources included pre-intervention and weekly writing samples, engagement observations, a writing rubric to code the writing samples and a student writing attitude scale completed before and after the intervention. Over the course of the study, students’ time engaged in the writing process and quality and length of their stories increased. Additionally, after the storytelling workshop, improvement in student writing increased at a faster rate than before the workshop. Further research could study if an oral storytelling workshop implemented earlier in the school year could have a greater impact over a greater length of time.

Abstract/Notes: A video-based modeling handwriting program for lowercase letter formation was embedded in a Montessori preschool phonics curriculum in one of two Montessori classrooms for 16 weeks. Children could view the DVD on request during phonics lesson time. Phonics skill and letter sequencing patterns improved for the children in both classrooms. The children with access to viewing the video-based modeling showed greater improvement in letter legibility. As part of early intervening services, occupational therapy practitioners may be called upon to make recommendations that benefit all the children in a classroom. Video-based modeling was compatible with the Montessori phonics curriculum and effective for this group.
