What 'work' does a child do in a day?
We get asked this question a lot, especially by new parents, or parents new to Montessori.
Unlike traditional school, there is no 'theme' for the day or week, or something akin to a lesson plan. So it's understandable when you as a parent likes to know "how did my child do today?" In Montessori, you may hear about the 'self-directed child.' The child learns at his or her own pace.
The best way to know what a child has accomplished is to observe!
