Montessori and me...

Sometimes you just find great pics and aren't quite sure how to use them. Here's how we are using these. Maria Montessori!  Here is an assortment of fun pictures of children through the ages and we are going to throw in a few of our favorite Dr. Montessori Quotes!  Frankly, for some of them, writing your own caption might be more fun and we would happily welcome all submissions. Let her words be your guide...
Maria  Montessori ... "“Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed.”

“If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.”

“We cannot know the consequences of suppressing a child's spontaneity when he is just beginning to be active. We may even suffocate life itself. That humanity which is revealed in all its intellectual splendor during the sweet and tender age of childhood should be respected with a kind of religious veneration. It is like the sun which appears at dawn or a flower just beginning to bloom. Education cannot be effective unless it helps a child to open up himself to life.”

"Free the child's potential, and you will transform him into the world”
“We teachers can only help the work going on, as servants wait upon a master.” 
“And so we discovered that education is not something which the teacher does, but that it is a natural process which develops spontaneously in the human being.”
