August 31st is Maria Montessori's birthday. At Lincoln Montessori, each year, we celebrate her birthday because she is the one who came up with the Montessori method. "Maria Montessori was an Italian physician, educator, and innovator, acclaimed for her educational method that builds on the way children learn naturally." Our PAB provides treats for the classrooms to celebrate her birthday. Kindergarten read about Maria Montessori. First and second grade read about her as a group and then did text evidence about her with partners. The third and fourth grade classes created a collaborative timeline of Maria Montessori's life and passed out Peace Carnations in honor of Dr. Maria Montessori's 151st birthday.
