What is normalization? For many new teachers, or even veteran teachers at the beginning of a new school year, "normalization" can seem like a Montessori myth. Does it really exist? How do you get there? How do you get that chaotic group of little people in your class to turn into those self-empowered, joyful, peaceful, eager little learners that the Montessori approach promises?
Please join us for this informative session about getting your school year started right and find hope that normalization can indeed be a reality! You will learn strategies to help you jumpstart the normalization process in your 3-6 Montessori classroom.
