Respect and Order

Montessori children are taught early to respect both the environment of the classroom and all things found within it.  Children learn the importance of approaching others politely and asking to join others in activities.  The teacher models how to use the materials in an appropriate and purposeful manner using care to replace them in their proper place on the shelf.  This adds to the sense of order in the classroom as children know exactly where to find the materials with which they wish to work.  Order and sequencing are also an intrinsic part of how the materials are used.
