...is that a 2 dollar way to say catholic school?
I did. Helped me learn pre-kindergarten stuff and actually introduced me to household chores, with their mini-kitchen and fake ironing, etc.
Both our kids did.
Both my step kids did till High School
What the fuck is that?
A school with kid's named August, Blake, Cooper and Courtney, Cortnee, Quartney, Kourtni and Kourtney.
Mixed age classrooms, with classrooms for children ages 2½ or 3 to 6 years old by far the most common
Student choice of activity from within a prescribed range of options
Uninterrupted blocks of work time, ideally three hours
A constructivist or "discovery" model, where students learn concepts from working with materials, rather than by direct instruction
Specialized educational materials developed by Montessori and her collaborators
Freedom of movement within the classroom
A trained Montessori teacher
Everyone I went to school with had saint's names.
I coached my son's baseball team and there was one brat from a Montessori. Would not listen to adults; thought he knew everything
That's what I'm curious about. All this freedom seems like it would turn kids in to annoying brats.
I'm srs. He pitched in the championship game and totally choked. Cried his eyes out in the dugout the whole time.
His parents were afraid to give him any suggestions so they would ask me to tell him stuff.
This is just one kid though so who knows?
my daughter goes to a montessori school..
I've seen that name on signs...I thought it was a pre school or a special ed
The drummer in my old band did, and he was a real fucking homo
So do you approve over the traditional schooling style?
Anecdotal, but I've worked with 2 Montessori transfer students who couldn't read anywhere near level in 3rd grade. And by every observable indication, they were bright. IOW, it was curriculum and practice, not kid. Reading has to be taught. Period. You have to direct the mind. And it needs to be done at certain ages to be effective.
Don't listen to ppl who claim "I taught myself to read." No, you didn't. Your brain was just able to break the code other humans showed you better and earlier than most. You didn't intuitively know what sound B makes, fuckface.
What was the question again? I'm in a foul mood.
so far it is working out just fine...i'm not going to compare it to anything else...she will most likely go to a public jr. high and high school..
They did really well. It was their choice to go to a traditional high school, and it was a bit of an adjustment. Not academically, but socially. But I suspect kids coming from any private school would experience that. I will say that it's not for kids that need structure. There's a whole lot of freedom.
