In Teaching Math The Montessori Way you’ll get practical common sense advice about how to help children love learning their math facts…and it’s not drill and kill methods.

It’s about skills and thrills to fuel enthusiasm.

Mathematics is the language we use to talk about quantity, structure, space and change, as well as other qualities of the physical world.

Our experiences within our physical world determine how we learn to think and communicate this knowledge.

In this workshop, I’ll show you how to give children foundational experiences with quantity, structure, space and change, experiences that will develop their number sense and love of using the language of mathematics.

This workshop is based on current research along with my twenty plus years of experience teaching children ages 3 to 15.

You’ll find information in this workshop that might turn the children around you into math lovers!

mathematicsWhat Workshop Participants Are Saying…

While I love learning and taking classes in general, completing professional development courses was often a chore and the material too basic and irrelevant to my work as a Montessori educator. I was so thrilled when I came across Maren Schmidt’s course offerings and now I take advantage of her insightful online courses, newsletters and webinars.  I always find myself taking copious notes and applying what I’ve learned immediately to my toddler environment.

I also forward and post her Kids Talk Newsletters so my student’s parents can benefit from her practical knowledge backed by experience and education.  Maren is smart, funny and helpful I tell all my teacher friends to take advantage of her offerings.

I loved this workshop! I have always enjoyed observing the children, but your ten secrets will definitely make for a more informed method for observation.

I intend to review my notes regularly until they are embedded in my mind! Thank you so much.

Hats off to you, Maren, for making the Montessori philosophy come alive for parents and refreshed for teachers, and administrators.

I have enjoyed every session and look forward to making the programs available for my staff and school community as pre-training, orientation, and parent education.

Thanks for a light hearted and fun learning opportunity that brings great value to the Montessori community.
