Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 3 September 2020

One can test a child's memory for colours by having him look at one colour and then advising him to go and choose a similar colour from a distant table where all colours are laid out in order. Children succeed in this exercise and make few errors. It is children of five years who are amused by this final exercise. They take great pleasure in comparing two shades and deciding upon their identity or not.

Maria Montessori, The Discovery of the Child, p. 135
