Harmoniuos Formation of Personality
Your child has grown up and it is the time for them to move on. In three basic aspects, which are order, rules and orientation the preschooler and elementary child will have the following differences:
Regarding to the exploration a 3 to 6 child has the sensorial interest, their mind is absorbent and strives to collecting the facts, while a 6 to 12 child the front position takes imagination, reasoning mind and exploration of the cause-and-effect connections.
Second Plane of Development
What are the most distinguished qualities of 6 to 12 children
Dr. Montessori observed that children go through four quite distinct and noticeable periods of physical and psychological changes, each of which last six years: birth to six (infancy), six to twelve (childhood), twelve to eighteen (adolescence), eighteen to twenty-four (transition to adulthood). As the needs of the child change at different stages of development, so must the environment change, and the experiences within that environment.

This is what the Second Plane of Development is all about:
  • Reasoning Mind
  • Imagination
  • Worship of Hero
  • Gregarious Instinct
  • Morality Evolution
  • Great work
  • Physical hardiness

      Three Period Lesson
      A child goes through the three periods before he learns something - getting the knowledge, practice and demonstrating the knowledge. This is nothing but a Three Period Lesson. In a traditional school it is represented by lesson, homework and exam. Let's see now what are these stages in a Montessori classroom.
      Acquiring knowledge

      In Montessori classroom the concepts are given by a teacher through Great Lessons, Key Lessons and Presentations, which are followed by Experiments, participating in Outings and Meetings with professionals.
      All these allow children to actively participate in the process of getting the knowledge, while in the traditional system all children must sit still and passively listen to a teacher.

      While in traditional education this stage is performed by home work given to students on everyday basis and in overwhelming volume, the practice stage in the Montessori school occurs through individual work, projects, plays, maquettes or models, playing games, making books/posters, newspapers, exploring movies/audio plays.
      Integration and Demonstration

      The final stage of learning is integration and demonstration of knowledge. How do these things happen in a traditional system? That's right - exams! Some of us still fall into stress when hearing the word. In a Montessori classroom children do observations, conferences with teachers or classmates, which allow self-examination and control. Writing scenarios and participation in drama, making maquettes and posters is a way of demonstrating knowledge in a fun and relaxed manner.
