Working on Sentence Analysis- The Montessori Way

In a Montessori education, children have the opportunity to design their own textbook with information created with their own hand and exercises neatly written.

Montessori: you create your education through your own hands (via your own notebooks and Montessori materials).
You OWN your education.
