Course Overview

Those of you familiar with the work of Dr. Maria Montessori already know that the prepared environment is one crucial factor of successful work with children. When it comes to the work of the spirit, there are special needs and activities we can provide. We will discuss in articles, videos and forums, how to create a spiritual environment in the home or in the classroom, meditation and yoga, and labyrinths for children. We have a special video of songs for the spirit that come from the collection of longtime Montessorian, Dr. Elisabeth Caspari.  

You will learn about the work of Dr. Sofia Cavalletti on the parable method, and you will see videos with complete written instructions on how to present the Biblical parable of the Good Shepherd and the stories of the life of Christ with concrete materials. The format of the lessons could easily be adapted to the life of other great teachers.
