I had a really great day of learning how to implement history within Montessori. The short story: for the 3 to 6 year old children, history is about the passage of time (e.g. seasons) and the duration of time (e.g. 5 minutes). Also, children at this age still need concrete, hands on ways to learn and to develop their brains. A longer post on philosophy and more specific lessons is coming but I wanted to share a few items that came highly recommended to me on teaching preschoolers and kindergarteners how to tell time. Enjoy! Marnie
