The Montessori Casa classroom is organized into five main curriculum areas: Language, Math, Practical Life, Sensorial, and Culture.
Practical Life Children are intensely interested in purposeful activity, and through real activity such as pouring, polishing, preparing food, sweeping, and washing the children learn to care for themselves, for the environment and for others.
Sensorial Young children engage all their senses to make order of the world. For example, by using prepared materials that are designed to appeal to a child’s desire to touch, manipulate, and move, children develop perceptions of size, space, and volume. This is the foundation for an understanding of geometry, mathematical concepts, and physics.
Language Inspired by the presented materials, basic skills in writing and reading are developed allowing children to link sounds and letter symbols effortlessly progressing to expressing their thoughts through writing and experiencing the world through reading.
Mathematics At this stage of development, children are concrete thinkers who are establishing order on the world. Again, specialized materials are designed to appeal and support understanding of concepts such as quantity and patterns. Using these materials, even the young child works with concepts of operations, squares and cubes, fractions, and geometry.
Cultural Initiated by the child’s own curiosity, the cultural domain of the classroom introduces individuals and small groups to geography, botany, zoology, science, art, and history.
