In August 2011, I was announced the lucky winner of Karen Tyler’s giveaway hosted by Sunrise Learning Lab. From that day on my understanding of the Montessori Method and its implications to life has broaden immensely. I had a chance to meet, though virtually, one of the most passionate and engaged teacher and mentor – Karen Tyler. A person of great heart and open mind who for many of us is a source of great inspiration. Her knowledge and experience that she so willingly share with her students is astonishing. It’s an honor and great privilege to announce today ( I’m so touched and excited at the same time) that Karen has generously offered to one of my reader one seat in her well-known on-line training program, including all 12 albums . This may be a great chance for you and your family!!!
“The beauty of this Pre-Primary course (2-6 years old) is that you can access the information from a group site any time during the day or night to download the presentations/lessons to add to your manual/album. You don't need special software in order to participate. There isn't a time limit or assignments that are due so there isn't any pressure
The entire course runs for 24 months and covers 12 albums. You will cover the 4 major subject areas :Practical Life, Sensorial, Language and Mathematics within the first 8 months.
You may take an option called FAST TRACK. This is the same as the 24 month course but it is completed within 12 months.
• Practical Life,
• Physical Science,
All of the albums are written for the 2-6 year old age group and are included in the course (10 out of the 12 albums extend their subjects out through lower elementary). The albums are complete with step by step presentations. For example, the Practical Life Album has 346 pages of lessons and dozens of pictures you can copy in our on-line photo album! Each album comes with its own set of Student Tracking Forms which make it easy for you to chart the progress of each child.
During this course, you will get to know what it means to follow in the footsteps of Maria Montessori. You will be guided by Karen as you discover and continue to grow into this “peaceful” way of living. We will be studying topics such as:
• Historical Introduction to Maria Montessori
• The Montessori Method – Book Study (free e-book used on-line)
• Montessori Philosophy
• The Absorbent Mind
• Development of Imagination and Creativity
• Development of the Intelligence and Will
• Differences between Traditional and Montessori Schools
• Classroom Management
• Children’s Behavior
• Emotional Growth
• Freedom, Natural Laws, Order
• Natural and Logical Consequences
• Physical Growth of a Child
• Power to Obey
• Responsibility and Self Discipline
• Sensitive Periods
And many, many more interesting issues …
What is more, Karen’s training course has another fabulous advantage. It allows you to meet people exactly like you who are eager to get to know philosophy of Maria Montessori a bit better. During my training course with Karen I met a unique group of people who are ready to support you and willing to share their experience and knowledge, their ups and downs, their doubts and their homeschooling or professional successes – such an experience cannot be underestimated ;-)
Upon completion of the entire course, you will receive a certificate that will say that you have completed a pre-primary training course (2-6 years old) by World Wide Montessori On-line and signed by Karen with her AMS notation.
