Care of the environment in the Montessori Classroom September 25, 2016 Rhonda Lucadamo The beauty and simplicity of the Practical Life shelves invite children of all ages to take care of their classroom. Two three year old children work together to fold the class polishing cloths. We are enjoying our new polar fleece cloths. Notice the intense concentration of this child as she sweeps away the Begonia blossoms. Repeating and refining his hand in preparation for future work with a pencil.
