And Finally,

For those of us working or indeed living with young children, how can we aid children to develop concentration? How often do we intervene when our really our ‘help’ is not needed? Do we realise how vital concentration is as a foundation for life?

Here’s a quote to keep in mind as you watch this delightful wee video.  It is one of a short series of vignettes from Annie Fisher Montessori Magnet School in Hartford.

"The first essential for the child’s development is concentration. It lays the whole basis for his character and social behaviour. He must find out how to concentrate, and for this he needs things to concentrate upon. This shows the importance of his surroundings, for no one acting on the child from outside can cause him to concentrate”                                        The Absorbent Mind

Ka kite ano,

MMEF
