What to buy a Montessori child Part 1
Montessori is all about following the child and their interests.
This practice can be used during the holiday season, when parents, friends, and family members try and decide what to get a child.
Observing the child in their environment provides another avenue
What does the child need to further their development? Sometimes this answer meshes with their interests as well.
I have a friend's daughter that loves horses, she is working towards initiating play with others and developing friendships. So I looked for a horse related game that she could play with a friend to strengthen her social skills. This could help her establish connections and provide a talking point she can use.
I'll let you know how it goes after Christmas!
Follow the child, observe the child.
