March Blog: 4 Classroom Strategies That Help Introverts and Extroverts Do Their Best

Dialog Between Teacher And Parents: That's What Children Need


This month's blog is 4 Classroom Strategies That Help Introverts and Extroverts Do Their Best.

Not all children are the same, even though they're in the same classroom, and this is the aspect that makes teaching so difficult and challenging. Some children may be extroverts, may like standing out during classes through asking tons of questions and may be able to make friends a lot easier due to their affinity and socialization skills. On the other hand, there are other children that may be more introverted and helping them integrate within the classroom is a much more difficult task than you imagined. You have to come up with the best strategy to determine each child to get equally involved in classroom activities and to bring out their best. This article may help you a bit on choosing the right strategy to make introverts and extroverts work together in the classroom.

Math

Our math curriculum covers learning to count, recognize numbers, trace them… from zero to 1 million. Introduction to addition and subtraction using Montessori materials are also available.

Early Literacy

In a Montessori classroom, early literacy starts before learning to read. Children are exposed to sounds and train their ear to identify them before putting a name on a letter. In the Early Literacy class, children can start with fun sound games like "I spy" and move all the way to reading comprehension.

Arts, Logic & creativity

Our Arts class includes an introduction to colors (primary and secondary) as well as many games using colors and shapes. We also offer a pre-coding game, reasoning games and music games.

Practical Life

Because children this age love to reproduce everyday activities done by adults, Maria Montessori included a range of activities like dusting, taking care of plants, cleaning a mirror or washing clothes. Montessori Preschool welcomes users in a digital school with lockers, a corridor full of daily responsibilities or discoveries.

Get started with a free 30-day trial and cancel at any time.



Montessori Preschool is available for Apple and Android devices.

Compatibility: Requires iOS 9.0 or later on Apple devices and Android version 4.1 and up on your Android device.
