Montessori Geometry Course for Early Childhood and Lower Elementary
Learn how to introduce Montessori Geometry lessons in Early childhood and lower elementary
Why is Geometry important for children?
Geometry is considered a part of the spatial intelligence. Spacial intelligence includes skills like reasoning, visual thinking, and ability to solve problems. Such skills are only one aspect of a person's overall intelligence. But research suggests that spatial thinking is a crucial part of the child's overall achievement in all other life skills and academic areas.
- Preschoolers who are better at visualizing spatial relationships develop stronger arithmetic abilities in primary school.
- There is evidence that early spatial ability predicts a young child's reading skills.
- In the future, statistics have shown that teens with excellent spatial skills are also more likely to secure employment in the visual arts or business
Montessori lessons covered in this course (You will learn):
-Geometric cabinet and how to introduce 2D shapes such as triangles and polygons.
-Geometric 3D solid shapes.
- How to use a Montessori protractor to measure angles (amplitude).
-Different kinds of lines using the Montessori stick box and board.
-Different kinds of angles and measuring their amplitude using the stick box and board
-I am a passionate MACTE certified Montessori educator, consultant, author, and founder of Montessori Tube Academy with over 14 years of experience.
-My journey started as I was a child, attending my lessons was a burden and I was always disengaged. Although in my personal time, I was a self-learner.
When I grew up, I realized that it was the teachers and lessons that were not engaging enough to entice my interest. Furthermore, when I was first introduced to Montessori 9 years ago, I decided to make a change, so I tried my best to make Montessori education more affordable and accessible by spreading the word, writing articles, creating courses, albums, and printables.
-Currently, I am writing a book called "Square 1 Education" trying to take Montessori to the next level that can match the 21st century by going back to square one of practical and outdoors learning.
-Intending to share all my expertise in Montessori across the world, I created a step-by step video encyclopedia that includes more than 250 videos that you can watch at your own pace, as well as, Pdf manuals that can move you from A to Z as a Montessori Teacher.
-No prior Montessori knowledge is required for this course.
