The first impression I had in reading 60 activities Montessori in the kitchen was: but these activities we do already on a daily basis! And in my opinion, this says the goodness of this text, because lately the label “Montessori” is used as a collection of activities, tasks,... different variations of games considered the best of the usual chores, but, however, the possibility to commit the time of their children, maybe devoting himself to another. But we are confident that Montessori had in mind when he wrote the famous phrase, “help me to do it alone”? What montessoriano is a global approach to the child and his or her world, a way of living together with the everyday life, play and teaching, taking account of the skills of the child at different ages. Is the look on the child, and the world to be educated and to be educated mainly in adults, because it might look differently from the usual things to house and offer it to the child as an opportunity to be together with him and together with him grow.
"To understand you must know to know you need to observe. The child grows to suit the needs and interests, some are genetically programmed, personal. The physical environment and the emotional, which welcomes and must know how to observe, understand and adapt"
Do not expect, therefore, a series of exercises to perform to their children, but a discovery of how to live with him also the place of the kitchen. For half of the volume the two authors (guinness book, finally! Look at the website of Annalisa Perino!) we speak of “basic skills”, i.e. those acts and those precious opportunities that are day-to-day shelling the pods, set the table, clear the table, wash the dishes, breading grate... the other half of The volume is dedicated to the experiences, which does not mean to “odd jobs”, but those gestures and those occasions maybe forget but possible, pleasant, and beautiful to live in the kitchen and a little off: the bottles of perfumes (have you ever smell the spices and the smells?), touch and recognize (have you ever caressed the shell of a walnut?), collect the seeds (how many seeds have you ever watched it?)... Clear and direct in the appendix to the final, which tells of the method montessoriano, for example, and simply engaging photos. An excellent opportunity to rediscover the kitchen with their children, also children (from 2 years!).
And if that's not enough, the first text, the same author Federica Buglioni has signed another text beautiful to live in the kitchen: Naturalists in the kitchen. In this case is not cited Maria Montessori, but every page vibrates his way of thinking. No recipe, no thing to do, but many, many ideas to look at the usual things with new eyes, curious, interested, fascinated. The text is addressed here directly to the boys and then aimed at a target age (from 7 years). Have you tried to cut an apple and to observe the symmetries? As they grow the leaves? And the colors used to communicate with the plants? As you stick the leaves to the stem? As the whole series PiNo, the book develops as the airy notebook, with many spaces for you to write down, draw... The route crosses also among wild fruits, mushrooms and the guests more or less acceptable to the plants. Anna Resmini provides rigor and clarity to every indication, observation, and comment.
Watch, recognize, and admire. Another beautiful book to become curious scientists of everyday life, starting right from the kitchen.
