Primary Workshop--Self-Discipline and Joyful Learning: Normalization in the 21st Century Montessori Children’s House

Joyful learning, spontaneous concentration, self-discipline, literacy, and practical mathematics are expected outcomes of normalization in a Montessori early childhood classroom. In this weekend workshop, we will explore Montessori’s theory of normalization in relation to the materials and activities found in a Montessori 3-6 classroom: how to first offer motives for concentrated activity leading to normalization and then turn this point of arrival into a point of departure through the materials for development in Sensorial, Language, and Mathematics. Observation, friendliness with error, and indirect preparation will give further focus to this exploration across all of the areas and all of the ages in the Children’s House environment.
