This book introduces the materials and techniques Dr. Montessori devised for teaching older children. In seven separate sections she applies her unique materials to the teaching of grammar, reading, arithmetic, geometry, art, music and poetic metrics. The book shows how these materials speak directly to the child’s curiosity and lead to a step-by-step self-mastery of the fundamentals of elementary school learning.
