NAMC montessori teacher children's day activities appreciation child high five
Many of us may be starting our summer vacations and though you may not see your Montessori students every day, the summer is a perfect time to continue to build relationships with them. What a lovely time for your students to get a nice note from you in the mail. It’s an opportunity to show your students you appreciate them, know them, and value their place in your life. These actions can help to build the mutual respect that is essential in the Montessori classroom.

Honoring the value of children worldwide is a concept introduced by the United Nations some fifty years ago. Around the world, many countries honor a National Child’s Day, sometimes also known as Universal Child’s Day. The date can vary, from country to country; some celebrate in May, June, or November. Think of this day in your country as a catalyst for cultural activities and lessons focused on the value, rights and welfare of children around the world.
