In our everyday hustle to get through life, we sometimes forget to stop and take in the beauty that is happening around us. Some Lower Elementary students found a caterpillar on the side walk last week, and, instead of letting the moment pass them by, they "adopted" the caterpillar, researched it, and are now waiting to see its transition. That is a Montessori Moment!
Have you seen this at home? Has your child volunteered to cook dinner? Does your older child help your younger child navigate daily life? Do you foster a sense of community within your home? Please share with us those great moments at home. Be sure to stop, take a breath, and take in the beauty of a Montessori education.
