Abstract/Notes: This research study explored the effects of using nature-based space and materials on the children’s concentration levels in an early childhood Montessori environment. Nineteen 3-6-year-olds participated in the study for four weeks. The researcher designed and implemented two interventions, nature-based space and nature-based materials, inside an early childhood Montessori environment. The purpose was to holistically improve the children’s concentration levels by being exposed to a nature-based area and materials. The data collection process relied on four qualitative and quantitative data tools: tally sheets, general observational notes, rate sheets, and measurement notes. The data analyzed in this research study suggests exposing young children to both nature-based space and materials in the learning environment is beneficial to their concentration levels. Lastly, the researcher considers further investigation of the effects of being exposed to nature and technology on the children’s brain by using scientific devices to read and interpret the brain activity.

Abstract/Notes: Alison Awes provides a comprehensive review of the literature from the most current recommendations of the National Reading Panel to create a detailed description of dyslexia as she emphasizes the positive qualities of the children with this language disorder. Awes provides an expansive explanation of the Montessori method and the ways in which the Montessori materials can support the dyslexic child. When early diagnosis and intervention is partnered with an attentive guide and appropriate accommodations, the dyslexic learner can become a successful reader and learner through life.
