When describing the period represented by the Kindergarten years, Dr. Maria Montessori described it as an “explosion of learning.” During the past 15 years, our instructors at Maria Montessori International Academy fully understand what she meant by that expression. We witness those explosions among the students who continue to build upon the concepts they have learned through sensorial activities. Something clicks after years of absorbing different concepts and they’re flourishing with their mastery of different subjects.
After their involvement in sensorial activities, including working with sandpaper letters, children are reading expressively and with a deeper level of comprehension. They are further developing their creativity and cursive handwriting with their personal journals. Kindergarten students also are mastering mathematical concepts, including geometry, addition and subtraction, decimals and fractions. Learning happens daily as they explore and master more challenging work.
