So I have been doing tons of reading as well as finding things that correspond with the Montessori approach. My principal is setting me up with a mentor and we're suppose to meet soon... but during the meantime I have been putting things together on my own, so i can bring it along when I meet my mentor. ( I Digress...) I came across the Peace Rose/Peace Corner Idea and absolutely love it and will incorporate it into my classroom. DO any of you ladies use it and if so how do you introduce it? How do you get the kids in the routine of using the peace corner? Thanks for all your speedy responses and thoughtful responses!!
