Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 3 October 2021

This great interest in writing came from the ideas that children wanted to express. If they had had no ideas, they would not have written. This explosion into writing came suddenly. We could even give the exact time when each child started to write. We could say, ‘This little child began to write yesterday at three o’clock.’

Maria Montessori, The 1946 London Lectures, p. 37
