Abstract/Notes: [...]today's children are homharded with moving images everywhere in their lives-on television, in movies, on smartphones, and on the Internet. HISTORY OF PHOTOGRAPHY MATERIALS NEEDED: * Tray * Samples of photographs from different time periods (ideally, ones that include images of children): * Tintypes (thin iron plates) * Daguerreotypes (copper plates) * Ambrotypes (glass) * Calotypes (paper) * Modern prints (paper) from film or digital camera * A digital photo (on a smartphone, for example), for comparison * Thin cotton or latex gloves (to keep fingerprints off the images; find them at a drugstore or Amazon.com) STEPS: 1. BENEFITS: Since these movies contain very little dialogue, and the characters express their emotions through their movements and facial expressions, children must understand and follow a story line in a different way than they are used to. VIEWING THE WORLD MATERIALS NEEDED: * Stereoscopic viewer * Stereoscopic photographs from different countries and scenes * Old photographs, preferably ones with children, animals, or landscapes (these are the subjects to which my students were most drawn) * New View-Master (with disks) for children (available from many toy stores) STEPS: 1.

Follow the Poet: Poetry in the Montessori Classroom

Available from: ProQuest

Publication: Montessori Life, vol. 21, no. 3

Pages: 16-23

Abstract/Notes: Poetry enables teachers to connect with their students in new ways. Teachers can show students that "poetry is something people do to capture thoughts, feelings, and experience." When poetry is incorporated across the curriculum, students learn to make discoveries by looking at their environment in new ways. Poetry stands apart from storytelling and language lessons because of its ability to inspire personal expression. In the author's first year as a head teacher of a Montessori 3-6 classroom, she has witnessed the children in her class experience significant language development and begin to experiment with creative expression through poetry. Montessori said that the teacher must "entice the children." Through poetry, a teacher may find a way to entice children in wondrous ways not before realized. A teacher can "entice" children with the varied rhythms and creative language of a poem. However, the teacher must also have an enthusiasm for poetry before introducing it.

Abstract/Notes: [...]let us present him with the world" (Montessori, 2007, p. 20). [...]we decided that doing one educational trip and one service project each semester would fit well into the larger school-wide schedule and give enough time for meeting and planning. At our school, we walk our whole Upper Elementary class to the library every other month and to a nearby park for PE class every week, but given safety and liability concerns, adults must always supervise these and any other excursions, including Going Out trips. [...]when planning Going Out trips, we must think of other ways to allow freedom and responsibility, so as to enable students to gain knowledge and skills to navigate the outside world. [...]after the trips, we ensured that the children wrote thank-you notes to the people who hosted them on their excursions as well as to the chaperones who accompanied them.
