Many Montessori schools choose to pursue free play; instead of enforcing strict playground rules and removing any aspect of possible risk from the environment, children are encouraged to creatively play in a respectful way. If this means climbing trees, playing contact games, or working in the mud, then that’s alright! In today’s piece, we discuss how this free play movement has seen some interesting benefits to schools- one of the most important being that bullying drops dramatically.

The holidays can be both exciting and frustrating for a child. One way to help children deal with their emotions and find peace is to introduce a peace basket into the Montessori classroom. A peace basket contains items that are meant to help children feel calm and self-soothe.

NAMC Montessori Teacher Training Blog: A Free Flowing Montessori Environment- Today’s NAMC blog considers the idea of establishing a seamless learning environment that does not separate between indoors and outdoors.

Of course, there are challenges to preparing the environment in this manner, but the benefits to the children can be immense.

Exploring the Earth - Montessori Sensorial Work with Soil. Though it may sometimes be painful to track down and clean up, the soil beneath our feet is also a wonderful opportunity for Montessori Sensorial work. Dr. Montessori encouraged free exploration of the natural world to entice the senses and encourage learning; today we discuss how students can explore the Earth and the natural world by taking a closer look at dirt.

When my son was six years old, we were discussing the old saying, "Two men looked out from iron bars, one saw mud and the other saw stars." I told him one saw only what was dirty, and the other one saw the possibilities of the universe. Adam said, what's wrong with mud? In that moment, my consciousness shifted. The truth was they saw different things, but I was judging them. The wisdom of children.
