"The senses are gateways to the intelligence. There is nothing in the intelligence which did not first pass through the senses." ~ ARISTOTLE
It was our usual Montessori day, and few of my little ones kept asking me," whats that Miss Erum? Can we make more buildings and towers out of the Pink Tower and Brown Stairs?"
I said ,"Yes , why not , lets start making it now".
In a Montessori system of Education a child is free to choose his lessons, depending on how long he can concentrate happily. There is no limitation for time slot, it caters what each child needs to develop ; his confidence, creativity , problem solving and understanding of the world directly by using his Senses.
So we started our work and to my surprise a big group gathered around . In a Montessori , everything is a discovery, every minute is an AH-HA moment for a child.
I started calling the interested children for different structures .This was our first Extention of the Brown Stairs that day.
you can see this three year old's immense concentration in making this amazing structure.
