Introducing Montessori-inspired early childhood activity books! This book--with eight pages of stickers--does more than simply stimulate learning through play: it enhances the cognitive development of the child. The activities become progressively more complex according to the three stages of a child's learning: getting to know the material through sensory experience, recognizing the material, and being able to explain the material. Let's learn to color! Take the outlined shapes and fill them in, try to stay within the lines, and say the name of each color out loud as you draw. It's lots of fun.

Author: Dorothy Canfield
Dorothy Canfield Fisher (1879-1958) who sometimes wrote under the pseudonym Stanley Cranshaw was an educational reformer, social activist, and best-selling American author in the early decades of the twentieth century. Dorothy Canfield brought the Montessori method of child rearing to the United States, presided over the country's first adult education program, and shaped literary tastes by serving as a member of the Book-of-the-Month Club selection committee from 1925 to 1951. Her best-known work today is probably Understood Betsy (1917), a children's book about a little orphaned girl who is sent to live with her cousins in Vermont. Though the book can be read purely for pleasure, it also describes a schoolhouse which is run much in the style of the Montessori method, for which Canfield was one of the first and most vocal advocates. In 1899 Dorothy Canfield received a B. A. from Ohio State University. Canfield went on to study Romance languages at Columbia University, and in 1904 was one of the few women of her generation to receive a doctoral degree. Amongst her other works are: The Bent Twig (1915), Hillsboro People (1915), and The Brimming Cup (1921).

Not illustrated. 1917 edition. Excerpt: ... to build; but when it does not elaborate from reality and truth, instead of raising a divine structure it forms incrustations which compress the intelligence and prevent the light from penetrating thereto. How much time and strength man has lost and is losing by this error! Just as vice, which is an exercise of function without purpose, wastes the body until it becomes diseased, so imagination unsustained by truth consumes the intelligence until it assumes characteristics akin to the mental characteristics of the insane. Fable and religion.-- I have frequently heard it said that the education of the imagination on a basis of fancy prepares the soul of the child for religious education; and that an education based on "reality," as in this method we would adopt, is too arid, and tends to dry up the founts of spiritual life. Such reasoning, however, will not be accepted by religious persons. They know well that faith and fable are " as the poles apart," since fable is in itself a thing without faith, and faith is the very sentiment of truth, which should accompany man even unto death. Religion is not a product of fantastic imagination, it is the greatest of realities, the one truth to the religious man. It is the fount and basis of his life. The man without religion is not, certainly, a person without imagination, but rather one who lacks internal equilibrium; compared with the religious man he is less calm, less strong in adversity; not only this, but he is more unsettled in his own ideas. He is weaker and more unhappy; and it is in vain that he catches at imagination to create a world for himself outside reality. Something within him cries aloud in the words of David: "My soul is athirst for God." And if he hopes to reach the goal of his...

This book was derived from a blog I maintained for more than 3 years. Through a series of almost daily posts, I shared our homeschooling experience with a small audience who encouraged it with their enthusiastic comments.More and more families have resorted to this method in order to better participate in their children's teaching. Although ten years ago this practice was truly marginal, it has emerged since then as a viable alternative to traditional schooling.The purpose of this book is to show you that it is relatively easy and very beneficial to school your own children.Visit us at http://montessorihomeschooling.net/
"This book explains various aspects of the Montessori Method and normal child development for children ages two and a half to six years of age and some characteristics concerning the elementary and middle school child"--Preface.
Author: Charlotte Cushman
Publisher: Paper Tiger (NJ)
This is a quality paperback which includes over 40 full color photos illustrating various real life Montessori school exercises. ABOUT THE AUTHOR The author took her AMI Montessori training at the Montessori Training Center, Palo Alto, California from Lena Wikramaratne (a colleague and friend of Maria Montessori). In 1985 she co-founded her own school, Independence Montessori and then later joined her husband s school, Minnesota Renaissance School, where she teaches now. This book grew out of independent pamphlets she wrote over the years to help parents understand the Montessori method. FROM THE FOREWORD "Charlotte Cushman's explanations are clear, essentialized and replete with examples that make her points easily understood. At the same time, she possesses an ability to identify in clear terms the "why's," i.e., the important ideas on which classroom practice is based. Not only is she philosophically astute, but her long experience as a Montessori teacher and her sensitivity enable her to provide a multitude of anecdotes, including conversations with children, that keep the discussion in "the real world." She also answers questions and doubts that parents have raised over the years and applies her knowledge of Montessori to matters (e.g., computer use) that postdate Maria Montessori. The result is that a Montessori parent including me with four decades of hindsight can say, "Oh, that's what's going on with my child" and "that's why he's doing that in class." But just as important, a parent who is considering sending a child to a Montessori school will learn the most important lesson from Charlotte Cushman's book: why Montessori matters for a child's success and happiness." Dr. Michael Berliner Michael S. Berliner is a former Chairman of the Department of Social and Philosophical Foundations of Education at the California State University, Northridge. He has spoken at international Montessori conferences, contributed articles on Montessori education to professional journals, and served as the board chairman of the Montessori school which his daughter attended in Los Angeles."
