Admittedly the only thing I ever learned about Montessori is that one toy is packed and put away before another is brought out, but that was enough. How is a kid ever going to realize that intermittently stacking legos and record albums will create cool patterns on the wall when you shine the EasyBake Oven light through the stack?
