Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 10 October 2020

Thus we would use a kind of gymnastics to prepare the mechanisms of the hand. This preparation can be compared, in view of its goal, to the other, intellectual preparation for writing, achieved by means of the movable alphabet. The mind and the hand are prepared separately for the conquest of written language and follow different roads to the same goal.

Maria Montessori, The Formation of Man, p. 92
