3000 First Impressions
It is the season of giving! Montessorians do this all year long. However, the Holiday approach is an especially thoughtful and unique time of year. What if we thought of gifting that way too?
Holiday Gifting - MontessoriSTYLE
The Montessori approach to holidays is a stark contrast from typical American classrooms. Whereas sugar-fueled holiday parties precede winter break in many schools, Montessori classrooms are a peaceful refuge from the stress of the holiday season.
Montessori Holidays prompt questions such as: "What do you do with your family during the holiday season?" "What do you celebrate?" and "What do your traditions mean to you?" This approach reinforces the belief that holidays are cultural and family events. The Montessori way is to encourage celebration in those settings. This style allows the children to learn about diverse cultures, faiths, and traditions.
So, what does MontessoriSTYLE holiday gifting look like? Rather than indulging in consumerist trends, Montessorians gift giving is thoughtful and meaningful.
It is the season of giving, but with the approach of the new year, it is also a time of reflection. For this reason, journal notebooks and writing tools make perfect gifts. Encourage your gift recipients to reflect on the year and visualize the new one ahead. Or they can use their journal notebooks to take educational notes, keep a daily journal, organize thoughts, draw, sketch or however the choose to creatively fill the pages.
