Just My Size Montessori Math Center

Help me give my students an opportunity to extend their Montessori math experiences with a shelving unit and a 45 Layout Mat.

My Students

The children in my classroom can only develop fully by means of experience in our environment, and to experience the essence of independence to be able to do something for one's self. I teach in a Montessori public school where the children in my classroom work freely and independently in a beautiful and well thought out and peaceful environment.

My students develop and learn from their experience in our classroom environment.

In a Montessori classroom, this is called "work". I am trying to create that wonderful environment.

In the words of Maria Montessori, "The greatest sign of success for a to be able to say, 'The children are now working as if I did not exist'."

My Project

This Montessori center will allow the children to expand their math lessons, taking their learning to the next level. We are in need of a storage shelf to make the Metal Insets that we already have in our classroom available for the students to use whenever they would like. The Metal Insets are the Montessori way to teach the children basic 2D shapes. The insets are square, triangle, circle, rectangle, oval, trapezoid, pentagon, curvilinear triangle, and quatrefoil. The 45 Layout Mat will allow my students to use our Base Ten blocks is an organized way to reinforce place value and the decimal system, demonstrating growing quantities when representing numerals from 1-9000!

All Montessori learning will be achieved while using the unique materials designed by Maria Montessori herself.

Giving the students the proper materials, as well as "just their size" storage, will encourage them to flourish as independent learners.
