Come to this workshop to learn about classroom management in our Montessori environments. This workshop will have a good mixture of theory and practical work, so come prepared to role play and share your ideas. You will gain an understanding of why we do what we do and how to do it and align to your context and the priorities of your community.
Linking to He Māpuna te Tamaiti
The second part of the workshop will link Grace and Courtesy to He Māpuna te Tamaiti and what to do next in your assessment and planning.
There will be an opportunity to begin an Internal Evaluation on classroom management and link this to the ERO document Te Ara Poutama and of course our Montessori Journey to Excellence (MJ2Ex): Te Ara Ki Huhuatanga: Essential Elements.

- with an understanding of Grace and Courtesy – what it is and how we do present it in our environments
