Montessori World

An educational blog for children and adults

Talk to me stories…

So, I’ve thrown my ideas on the floor, jumbled them around and tried to make a story about The Pearly Cat, based on true events. Finally, I rejoiced with 5 sentences ready to be moulded into a short story for 4-year-olds to read and extend to a longer version of their own tales. Next, I will boldly attempt to illustrate the story as advised by an author some time back. I will surely need limitless patience, luck, courage and magic to accomplish this.

God, who knows what will this experiment breed?

And another matter off the tangent as I was reading the current issue Montessori International magazine, wouldn’t it be nice for kindergartens here to embark on a twinning relationship with other schools/institution in other countries? Something similar to a twinning programme between higher learning educational institutions between the developed countries and Malaysia. Children from both worlds can learn about their peers through practical experiences and not only limited to deriving theoritical knowledge from encyclopaedia, atlas, map, textbook, newspapers or magazines? And looking at the continuing plummet of flight prices and more frequent travel fairs being held a few times a year, who knows maybe in the very near future, children can visit their visual-twinning pals at respective kindergartens, like in an exchange programme! Awesome hah!!!
