Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 2 September 2020

Any object that we wish to use for the education of the senses must necessarily present many different qualities such as weight, texture, colour, form, size, and so forth. How are we to isolate from many qualities one single one so that attention may be focussed on it? This is done by a series and its gradations; the objects are identical among themselves with exception of the variable quality which they posses.

Maria Montessori, The Discovery of the Child, p. 103
