More Nursery Rhyme Activities


"The objects, which I gave the children, were like a key to a clock, but with a significant difference.  After is is wound, the clock continues to run by itself, and after a child is given an object to use, he not only continues to work with it, but his efforts leave him mentally stronger and healthier than before."

--Maria Montessori
