Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 18 November 2020

When a teacher has a child see and touch the letters of the alphabet, three sensations come into play simultaneously: sight, touch, and kinaesthetic (muscular) sensation. This is why the image of the graphic symbol is fixed in the mind much more quickly than when it is acquired through sight in the ordinary methods.

Maria Montessori, The Discovery of the Child, p. 213
