Think about when you first learned how to ride a bike. Did you sit on the bike, held the wheel and tried several time while falling ? OR did sit and listen quietly while your parents explained the various elements of riding and tasked you with memorizing exactly what they said.
You balanced your way onto the seat, tried to pedal and control the handlebars, and most likely, fell. You tried again and again until you mastered riding, internalizing the knowledge and gaining control. We are active, not passive learners. We learn to how to bike by biking. At our school, your child will learn by doing.
At Alef Bet, it is crucial for our students to get the most out of Montessori principles. We employ the following elements to foster our Montessori method as well as our Jewish Life.
