The secret of good teaching is to regard the children's intelligence as a fertile field in which seeds may be sown, to grow under the heat of flaming imagination. Our aim therefore is not merely to make the children understand, and still less to force them to memorize, but so to touch their imagination as to enthuse them to their innermost core...

Our Field Trip.
Thank you to all the parents and the grandparents that came with us on our lovely walk to Rotorua Immediate School to go to the Fonterra Science Road Show. There we enjoyed many demonstrations that made us think. Then we had a chance to walk around and play on many different types of science experiments and displays. It was a morning of discovery for all of us that we soon won't forget.

About the Blogger
I hold a Master's in Montessori and have been working in Montessori on many levels both in New Zealand and in the United States for over twenty-seven years. One of my greatest joys is working with children in the prepared environments and watching the lightbulbs go off when they grasped a concept for the first time. I know with the thousands of children and adults that I've worked with over the years, that our future will be in good hands with their many skillls and gifts they will bring to the world.
