    pronunciation: mon tuh ssss or e

    Dr. Maria Montessori was a theorist and a medical doctor at a time when women were not to have a thought or an idea let alone a career.
    She did much research in asylums that were filled with critical children of varying needs but also, children with clefts and abnormalities physically. She created a curriculum of materials that are attractive to children. They are colorful and deliberately color coded in every content area. The materials are ALL tactile and concrete way to learn a concept by manipulating the materials. I have often posted about the favorite links i have that offer an insight on the materials sold or response papers that go well with a particular lesson.
