If you have not seen this lovely video yet (put together by another Montessori school), it is worth 5 minutes of your time! I love how independent, focused, and motivated this 4-year-old little boy is in this time-lapse video of his 3 hour work period. You can see how capable he is, how little he relies on the adults, and how his social interactions are balanced throughout the morning as he completes a variety of different works. I also love the freedom and responsibility he demonstrates as he occasionally steps out of his classroom or manages certain materials as he takes care of his needs and follows his interests!
