Abstract/Notes: Hayward Twin Oaks Montessori School (HTOMS), in Castro Valley, CA, is located 6,119 miles from Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine-a geographic distance that at one point in history may have seemed endlessly long but that is now, thanks to technology and our interconnectedness, very immediately near.

Abstract/Notes: IN THE SUMMER OF 1950, TEENAGERS ELVIRA BUSINELLI AND DELFINA TOMASSINI EMBARKED UPON A TEACHER TRAINING COURSE AT THE ITALIAN UNIVERSITY FOR FOREIGNERS, IN PERUGIA, ITALY-TAUGHT BY MARIA MONTESSORI. [...]it shaped and guided my professional life, because I obeyed her teachings and advice and applied her Method. To truly learn how to teach children was something that was difficult to understand at that time. Having met Maria Montessori, who spoke magnificently about the physical and psychic development of children, I learned the reason why children can learn in a particular way, and each one within his own time frame. [...]in my years of teaching, I saw in practice that the Method is valid, using specific materials to make kids grow autonomously, without oppressing them.

Abstract/Notes: Soon after No Child Left Behind (NCLB) legislation was signed into law in the U.S. (2002), an increasing emphasis in schools on high-stakes testing performance resulted in a decrease in recess and movement time, including physical education for Elementary students (Ohanian, 2002). Since the hazard of unmonitored television time was first explored by Marie Winn in The Plug-In Drug (1977, revised 2002), the allure of screens too early and too often has only become an increasing challenge for both parents and educators. Providing dedicated time for movement and nature are important general guidelines for parents and educators to remember, but there are also classroom-based tools available that teachers can implement into the school day to promote sensory health and positive behaviors in their students. Some individual tools that could be set up in the classroom to be utilized by students, perhaps even as a classroom work or on a "sensory shelf," might include the following: * Hand-size fidgets and squeeze balls of varying textures and firmness levels; * Headphones (noise-canceling, silent or with music); * Lap weights; * Fine-motor activities that allow for accommodations and sensory variety (e.g., sensory table, Practical Life, and art works); * Colored glasses (to mute visual input or block flickering of fluorescent lights); * Stretch/resistance bands; * Massage balls or a foam roller; * Chewing tools (pencil toppers, pendants, gum, etc.).

Available from: St. Catherine University

Abstract/Notes: This action research project investigates the effect of providing earth-conscious materials in the art curriculum on early childhood Montessori students' environmental awareness. The participants for this study were seven preschool students at a private, home-based Montessori school in the urban Western United States. The research design was qualitative and quantitative, utilizing field notes, observational notes, behavioral tally sheets, and group conversational questionnaires to gather information on students' environmental awareness. The students' mean eco-affinity responses increased by 16%, while their mean environmental awareness responses increased by 23%. The frequency of material usage positively correlated with the frequency of environmental actions. The findings suggest that earth-conscious art materials have a positive effect on student environmental awareness. The researcher realized that increased environmental awareness does not indicate increased ecological stewardship. The conclusion of this study urges educators to reconsider the role that art curriculum and materials play on student environmental awareness.
