Montessori Training 2013
Enriching the learning/teaching methods from the earliest years motivated this year's ongoing Montessori Training lead by Sr. Barbara Jean Ciszek, CSJ, Principal, Cardinal Bernardin Early Childhood Center and Jeanne Henry, Teacher, Holy Family Catholic Academy. Carol Fendt forwarded this eyewitness update: when the electricity was turned on, Bee Jay showed pictures of the Montessori shelves in the Chicago schools where classrooms have so many materials to use for instruction. This training session included the preparing of the instructional materials, as well as practice using them effectively. The training team learned the names of the fruit and vegetables that are here and tools for farming. Farm and domestic animals as well so that we can begin to make a content for teachers to teach (language cards/words). The participants also worked on geography and language materials.The trainers learned as much as the trainees.
