    الكتاب أشبه بمذكرات معلمة فصل منتسوري، تتحدث فيه عن تطور أطفال فصلها على مدار العام الدراسي أحد الأطفال في بداية العام تم تشخيصه بصعوبات تعلم، ولكن مع نهاية العام كان معدلاته أعلى من الطبيعي وطفل آخر كان يعاني من تعسر القراءة، ولكن تغير ذلك بنهاية العام أعجبني فكرة أنه إذا لم يكن تقييم الطفل مناسبًا بنهاية العام فالمعلمة تعرض على ولي الأمر أن يبقى الطفل معها لعام دراسي آخر قبل الانتقال للصف الأول الابتدائي حتى يكون مستعدًا له، وليس معنى أنه أنهى العام الدراسي أنه ينتقل للمستوى التالي بالضرورة أعجبني الكتاب أشبه بمذكرات معلمة فصل منتسوري، تتحدث فيه عن تطور أطفال فصلها على مدار العام الدراسي أحد الأطفال في بداية العام تم تشخيصه بصعوبات تعلم، ولكن مع نهاية العام كان معدلاته أعلى من الطبيعي وطفل آخر كان يعاني من تعسر القراءة، ولكن تغير ذلك بنهاية العام أعجبني فكرة أنه إذا لم يكن تقييم الطفل مناسبًا بنهاية العام فالمعلمة تعرض على ولي الأمر أن يبقى الطفل معها لعام دراسي آخر قبل الانتقال للصف الأول الابتدائي حتى يكون مستعدًا له، وليس معنى أنه أنهى العام الدراسي أنه ينتقل للمستوى التالي بالضرورة أعجبني أيضًا حيادية الكاتبة في السرد، فقد تحدثت عن إخفاقاتها ومواطن فشلها بالرغم من خبرتها الكبيرة والطويلة في العمل بهذا المجال، إلا أن الخطأ وارد والمهم أن نعترف به ونتداركه الكتاب برأيي مفيد أكثر لمعلمي منتسوري في الصف، أما الأمهات بالمنزل قد يشعرن معه ببعض الملل

    Lillard sets the bar high. For any Montessorian reading of her experiences and ideas, there are bound to be feelings of exasperation and disbelief. How did she get her classroom so normalized, so perfectly? How did she come to such perfection? I don't know whether it was her desire to present Montessori as a shining example of education, or whether she just had an amazing knack with children, but her exposition is very impressive. It may be that my own teaching lacks her finesse and wisdom. I have Lillard sets the bar high.

It may be that my own teaching lacks her finesse and wisdom. I have never had the kind of success she writes of in her book. I tend to think of her, however, as a slight exaggerator. She presents the ideal classroom, with ideal solutions to the difficulties of Montessori. For a wealth of good ideas, this book is wonderful. Lillard presents so many useful tidbits, it nearly filled my little notebook. Just leave behind the expectation that they'll be as easy to implement as Lillard makes them out to be.

    I stumbled upon this and thought it might shed some light on what my kid is up to in kind. It did shed a little light on it or at least made me recognize some of the abstract discussions we've had about school days, but for an in-the-dark parent it didn't seem nearly as useful as it might for a Montessori teacher. I would like to know a little more about some of the materials in use and even see them in action. The first journal section was quite interesting, but the others felt a bit repetitive I stumbled upon this and thought it might shed some light on what my kid is up to in kind.

The first journal section was quite interesting, but the others felt a bit repetitive for what I was after. Having said that, the section on how the children with learning disabilities reacted to the materials was quite interesting.

    Kitap bir montessori öğretmeninin günlüğü. Bana faydalı olacağını düşündüğüm ve eğitimini aldıgım bir alan oldugundan okumaya başladım ve kaknüs yayınlarını okumaya devam ediyorum. Kitabı beğenerek okudum. Kendini eleştiren bir eğitmen ve hatalı oldugu konuları iyileştirmeye çalışan ileri görüşlü bir eğitmen. En önemlisi mesleğine aşık. Tam da olmak istedigim gibi desem yanlış olmaz. Eğer siz de bir öğretmen iseniz hatta ebeveyn iseniz bence kesinlikle okumalısınız.

    Montessori uygulamaya başlayanlar ve özellikle de okulöncesi öğretmenleri için harika bir başucu kitabı. Bölüm bölüm anlayışı, yazarın yaşadıklarını samimiyetle anlatmış olması, bazı materyal tanıtımları ve örnek ders planı çok çok güzeldi. Ben çok faydalandım. Okul öncesi olması sebebiyle bazı yerleri hızla geçtim ama aynı şekilde yazılan ilkokul montessori kitabı okumayı çok isterim.

    It took me a very long time to finish this book. I kept picking it up only to read 20 pages and set it back down for another week. I think I wasn't very fond of the author; she kept saying such un-Montessori type of things. She wrote the book during a tough year, which, professionally, I understand. But if I was writing a book to illustrate to an outsider how my classroom ran and I started having a tough year, personally, I would have set the project aside for another time.

    This book is fabulous! Very insightful on learning how to teach your child indirectly. Even though this is a book that was published in the last '70's, since the Montessori method doesn't cahnge it was a great way to implement some things with Collin and I've got say that he has taken to them extremely well and easily.

    Worthwhile ideas on bringing the Montessori model into public schools. A great resource for teachers to use while planning their classrooms and curriculums.

    Very good in that I kept wanting to stop to argue and discuss with the author!
