Day 4 and 5: My First Days at Montessori
The Montessori system in short means that the children have a lot more responsibitities. I've only been in the class or the 3-6 year olds yet. In here, there were teachers but they didn't stand in front of the class and teach the children like the way we are used to in 'normal' schools. The children have to do their own exercises and the teachers walk around and help the students if they ask for it. The other big difference is that the children are in classes of mixed ages, so the older ones can help the younger ones and the younger ones can pull themselves up to the older ones.
Another really interesting part about Montessori is the multicultural part. Montessori emphasizes on embracing other cultures and pays a lot of attention to the different cultural backgrounds of their students. That's why there are a lot of children with different nationalities in the Montessori school. It's really fun to work with kids with different cultural backgrounds. I also like to see how all the children look and are very different from each other, but they don't even seem to notice. For them, there is nothing more normal in the world. If everyone were like these kids, the world would be a way better place.
Although I really love to work with the little children, they really break me up. After the first day I was exhausted. Of course I'm probably also still a little bit tired from my flights and from the difference in time zone. Every night I fall asleep as soon as my head touches my pillow.
