This workshop will explore the work of both Maria Montessori and current scientists to present skills, tools, and beautiful materials that create language- and conversation-rich environments. We will discuss “serve and return,” “motherese,” sign language, reading together, moving from concrete to symbolic materials, and supporting the older toddler.
