Abstract/Notes: The main purpose of this research is to examine the effect of Montessori education approach on 4-6-year-old children’s concept acquisition such as school readiness, direction/position, self/social awareness, texture/material, quantity and time/sequence. The method of this research was pre-test/post-test, experimental and control group. Pre-test/post-test was carried out to examine the effect of the Montessori education on 4-6 year-old children who are the experimental group and the control group was formed to compare the effect of Montessori education on the experimental group. Sample of research consisted of 24 children who were educated with Montessori education at Gazi University Faculty of Vocational Education Department of Child Development and Education Application Preschool and 24 children who were educated at Ankara University Application Preschool and Child Club, where MoNE’s curriculum was carried out. For children’s acquisition of concepts such as school readiness, direction/position, self/social awareness, texture/material, quantity and time/sequence Bracken Basic Concept Scale-Revised was used as data collecting instruments. Comparing both groups for pre-test and post-test mean score obtained from Bracken Basic Concept Scale-Revised results show that statistical differences were found between the experimental and the control group and these differences were in favor of the experimental group. There are differences between children who got education through Montessori approach and MoNE’s curriculum in school readiness, direction/position, self/social awareness, texture/material, quantity and time/sequence areas.

Abstract/Notes: There is an expanse of literature looking at various topics supporting Montessori education, especially in preschool; however, there is a lack of research in infant and toddler Montessori classrooms. Most of the empirical data regarding language acquisition has focused on the child’s acquisition of vocabulary through direct instruction, rather than the learning capability from overhearing a third party in a naturalistic setting. The purpose of this intervention study was to add to the limited empirical research on language acquisition in infant and toddler Montessori environments. More specifically, the intervention assessed if infants and toddlers could indirectly acquire new vocabulary through the Absorbent Mind from teachers and peers’ ambient dialogue during the Montessori three-period lesson. The research utilized a descriptive, correlational pre-and-post quasi-experimental design to assess and analyze vocabulary and ambient language. Data collection occurred in three Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) and American Montessori Society (AMS) infant and toddler mixed-aged environments throughout New York State and Maryland. The Language Environmental Analysis (LENA) system was used to analyze audio recordings. Transcriptions of audio recordings quantified vocabulary acquisition and ambient language. Paired t-tests and ANCOVA were used to analyze children’s acquired vocabulary. A fidelity scale analyzed the extent to which Montessori trained teachers adhered to the three-period lesson intervention. The findings provide opportunities to improve infant and toddler teachers' classroom practice related to language acquisition. Suggestions were offered for early childhood teacher preparation programs.

Effects of Montessori's Cylinder Block Training on the Acquisition of Conservation

Available from: APA PsycNET

Publication: Developmental Psychology, vol. 2, no. 1

Pages: 156

See More

Abstract/Notes: Assessed whether Montessori's "cylinder block training hinders or facilitates" the acquisition of conservation using 32 kindergarten children. Ss were trained with Montessori blocks, while controls worked with jigsaw puzzles. "From pre- to posttest, conservation scores" of the Ss "decreased (5.75 to 4.80) while those of the control group increased (5.75 to 7.08)." It was found that the difference between the posttest scores of the 2 groups was significant. It is concluded that cylinder block training does not facilitate conservation and may hinder it.

Abstract/Notes: The objectives of this research were to explain about how Montessori implemented the teaching and learning process of English for children and to explain about how Montessori Approach can be implemented on children’s language acquisition for two-word stages in the classroom. The researcher used a qualitative research method of case study by implementing three stages of analysis from Miles & Huberman. The result of this research showed that (1) the teaching and learning process in Kinder Haus class was done into four stages. There were warm up activities (singing & dancing, games), the first main lesson activity (Art & Craft, language), second lesson activity (Practical Life) and the third lesson activity (Sensory activity). (2) Montessori Approach can be implemented on children’s language acquisition for two - word stages in the classroom especially in the “practical life” area. The children used the simple words or instructions automatically, either with themselves or their friends in the classroom. Therefore, the implementation of Montessori Approach in the classroom can be done into four stages and the children produced the words for the level of the two – words.
