METHOD OF TEACHING
The Montessori Method of teaching, which was named after its founder Dr. Maria Montessori, believes in practical child-centred concept and not a teacher-centred one, maintaining that, individual attention maximizes a child’s capacity to excel. This is to ensure that the child worked from the unknown to the known, from the familiar to the unfamiliar using various learning apparatus to develop basic concepts on sensorial, mathematics, practical life and language skills.
Sensorial lessons ensure that all the five senses of the child are nurtured and trained to be conscious enough to prepare them for the technicalities in other subjects.
These lessons help the child to learn the logic behind the formation of figures and forms impressions about them in pictures. To ensure that the child learns better, a variety of instruments which include, cubes, rods, special beads of assorted colours and tables for practical illustration.
These lessons ensure that the child is taught ethical norms which most adults take for granted. These include elementary movements or preliminary activities, exercise for care of self, environment and ones that ensure the development of social skills, grace, courtesy and general moral ethics of the child.
This exercise forms a vital part of the Montessori system of education. The aim is to ensure that the child is able to do easy reading – which helps to enhance good communication skills. Thus, the Phonic method of reading is used to achieve maximum results. At the end of the child’s five years of basic pre-school education, he or she must be able to read successfully with much pleasure and understanding.
