Presented by Elise Huneke-Stone, Director of Elementary Training
The elementary learning journal (or diary, or record book) is one of the three "Tools of Responsibility" introduced on AMI elementary teacher trainings. Each elementary child is expected to keep a record of his or her work. But the learning journal, thoughtfully implemented, is much more than a branch of record keeping. Join Elise Huneke-Stone to find out more about how to turn this Montessori tradition into a lively, integrated part of every child's elementary experience. This workshop is designed for elementary trained teachers, and draws on both academic research and Elise's classroom experience.
This workshop is intended for Elementary teachers.
An Oregon Registry workshop. Participants will receive a 2 hour certificate.

It is well documented that children typically develop their reading skills between the ages of 4 and 8. Reading bridges both Primary and Elementary, and Montessori educators meet children where they are. The goal of “Total Reading” – reading comprehension, appreciation of style, and understanding of emotional content is both an achievement and a launching point for children in the first and second planes. Join us as we explore playful and rich supports to Total Reading that will give every child the foundation for a lifetime of literacy.
Please RSVP by Friday, January 10 by contacting Janet Lewis at (503) 963-8992. You can also email Janet by clicking here.
