If you did not receive the Fall 2011 “Small Hands” catalog, you can visit their website at www.forsmallhands.com. This catalog is packed full of high quality Montessori educational materials for both the home and school environment. The holiday season is fast approaching and this is an excellent resource for our parents. As an added benefit, Montessori Tides School will receive a 10% credit on any orders over $25. If you order by phone or online, please give them our school customer number 115459.
If you are following our Practical Life Video Blog Series, Ms. DeAnne emphasizes the importance of providing child size materials in the home like that of the classroom. To quote her, “These materials help the child to be successful and master their skills, which helps build their confidence ‘to do it myself.’”
