Abstract/Notes: Polli Soholt looks at grace and courtesy from the 3-6 classroom perspective with clear theory explanations as they pertain to the larger classroom culture. She discusses the link between older and young children and the presence of the teacher as a model for grace and takes a brief look to neural science for proof of the existence of social interest in very young children. Polli asserts that social skills are integral to a sensitive period for social behaviors with other children and adults. She has very specific ideas about grace and courtesy presentations that aid the directress and the child in the learning process for conveying social activities. The article concludes with a concept of the "little community," where individual work can be seen in the context of how it makes a contribution to the whole community, even at an early age. [This talk was presented at the NAMTA conference titled "Grace, Courtesy, and Civility Across the Planes," Portland, OR, March 13-16, 2014.]

Abstract/Notes: Mary Verschuur chronicles the outdoor work of Lincoln Montessori School in prairie, forest, and indoor greenhouse environments, pointing out the application of the prepared environment principles to the natural world. Implicit to the design are opportunities for caring, including various practical life exercises with outdoor tools blended into each habitat. The repeating cycles of nature and its seasons are part of the yearly cycle of children in multi-age groups, adding to sensory richness and hands-on tasks. Lincoln Montessori School demonstrates how schools can model simple and well-thought-out solutions with minimum expense and maximum engagement.
