The importance of the hand is at the heart of Montessori education. The use of hands helps the child construct himself. Dr. Maria Montessori felt strongly that the hand and brain must develop in harmony. The hand reports to the brain; the brain guides the hand; the cycle continues, resulting in the development of the intellect.
Many of our stellar Upper Elementary literature-lovers chimed in with their current reads and/or favorite reads! Much appreciation for their willingness to share their books with the Villa di Maria community!

Wherever you go, whatever you do, we would LOVE, LOVE, TRIPLE LOVE to receive photo ops of your family fun with a special request incorporated into photo. In some unique (or not so unique) way, weave the letters, V, D, M into your picture. Get those creative (or not so creative) juices flowing (your choice) and share those spring break moments with your favorite school!
