The Silence Game – Nurturing Quiet
A favorite of the Montessori preschool child
We need to take time each day to speak to the children quietly. We need to bring the idea of quiet to their consciousness and give them an opportunity to become quiet. Allow the children be still and listen to the silence.
They will hear sounds which generally could not be heard, become perceptible. For example, the ticking of the clock, the chirp of a bird, a drip of water and other sounds not usually heard.
While sitting in a circle the children become very quiet and still as the little book “Making Silence” is softly read to them.
You can make silence.
