Early Childhood Classroom Management 1: 
Montessori-ize Your Transition Times

Addressing Problem Behaviors

Description

Let’s take a closer look at four everyday routines of the Montessori classroom: morning snack, outside time, lunch time and show and tell. These all show up as transitions to the child’s activities which can be stressful for teachers and children alike. Let’s unwrap the gifts of each one and discuss some strategies that we have seen work well in a variety of environments with experienced Montessori teachers.

Two Montessori teachers discuss how to bring joy, order and peace while empowering students during snack time, outside time, lunchtime and sharing time.

The ways in which we communicate with parents, provide them opportunities to meet with other Montessori families, and share their time and talents with the school, all help develop relationships built on trust and respect.
