•Montessori in the Home for Toddlers: A Prepared Environment is a fundamental tenet of Montessori philosophy. Come learn from the Toddler Faculty all about ways to incorporate the Montessori (cont. next page) 11 philosophy in your home and our approach to discipline. There will be a short video and time for questions and answers.
•Introduction to Positive Discipline: Please join our MSD Student Support team, Joo Ree Chu, Tori Virlee, and Dr. Sarah Hraha for a great discussion. Positive Discipline is a program developed by Dr. Jane Nelsen. It is based on the work of Alfred Adler and Rudolf Dreikurs and designed to teach young people to become responsible, respectful, and resourceful members of their communities. Positive Discipline teaches important social and life skills in a manner that is deeply respectful and encouraging for both children and adults. Parents who attend this workshop will learn to identify and respond to the need behind a child’s behavior rather than reacting to the behavior itself. You will learn tools to employ kindness and firmness at the same time while being neither punitive nor permissive. You will also learn a few things about yourself.
•The Montessori Math Experience: Come learn math the Montessori way! The Montessori Math Experience is designed to allow you to view and interact with the MSD classrooms through the eyes of a child because you get to be the child. You’ll experience the math materials and lessons through the lens of a MSD student, and have a chance to actively engage with some Montessori math lessons at each program level…and discover why learning math the Montessori way is so engaging and meaningful and provides our students with a rock-solid foundation of mathematics concepts.
•Meet the Specials Team: This is a great opportunity to come hear from these very special people directly about the exciting programming and special events they work on every day with MSD students.
