Meet the Montessori Makers

Introducing...

                                                                   
                                                                   

Hi! My name is Donovan, but I like to be called DJ. I am 10 years old and I love animals. I consider myself an Herpetologist, even though I haven't attended college or high school for that matter. My favorite sport is TaeKwonDo. My favorite food is any kind of noodles. My favorite thing to learn about is Zoology. My current project is building a bigger tank for my Chinese Water Dragon. My favorite tool is the Saw. My favorite Montessori material is the Checkerboard. What you may want to know about me is that I often don't finish my projects before I start another one. I like to take my time and while I am thinking I think of another project and start it so I won't forget about it.

                                                                       

Greetings! My name is Kennede, but you can call me Ken. I am 13 years old. I like learning about Physics. My favorite Montessori material is the Binomial Cube. I absolutely love Duct Tape! I also like acting and making YouTube videos. My current project is building a Model Car that was inspired by a recent outing to the Michigan Historical Museum. I am also researching more about Go Cart Racing. What I love most about being a Maker is that my projects allow me to express myself.

                                                                              

Hola! My name is Nia. I am 16 years old. My favorite subjects are History and Language Arts. I am very interested in learning other languages and about other cultures, so that's what I spend a lot of my time doing. My favorite Montessori materials are the Continent Boxes. The Continent Boxes are packed with objects, pictures, and facts about the specific continent. My favorite tool is a pen because I love to write! My current project is making jewelry. I always journal my ideas and designs before I start making, sometimes this process may take several days to do.

  2. It's fascinating to see Montessori used at an older age (I have a 2 year old, so you are further along on this journey than I am). All of your kids seem engaged and interesting.

    A wonderful introduction.
