Practical Life and Language in Casa dei Bambini

By the end of the second year of life the baby begins to speak sentences. This means that he accepts and understands the logic of the language, this is a step towards intellectual work.
This is the time, when adults are called upon to help the child learn the language, gradually regulating the chaotic picture. The adult's challenge is to create conditions for spontaneous, intuitive at this stage development of written and spoken language, to recreate in the child's head a strict logic and original beauty. Dr. Maria Montessori writes that almost all normal children, having received the opportunity to use specially designed Montessori material, are able to write and read by five years old and they do it very well.

Great role in the development of the child's written and oral language plays the maturity, readiness of motor skills, especially the level of hand development. Written language requires the most complex small finger movements, closely associated with higher mental processes. All this makes us pay special attention to providing a child with the conditions for his motor skills development, especially the muscles of hands and the delicate movements of fingers. Observing children between the ages of two and six, we can conclude that it is this period of a person's life that is sensible and the most receptive to spontaneous, natural development of the hand.

The seminar will be held by Ekaterina Rodionova and Susanne Ostrovsky.

Role of a Father

The seminar will be held by Irina Moiseykina - a mother of to children, an AMI 0-3 specialist and will cover the tasks of a father during each period described below:

1. Before birth: taking care of mother. A happy mother is a happy child; creating the right prepared, appropriate home environment; attending training courses on childbirth.

2. After birth: seeing the baby as soon as possible, because there is a sensitive period of paternity.

3. Symbiotic period - what is it? The tasks of the father during this period are: to be a protective barrier for the family so that the mother can establish a special relationship with the child; father becomes in charge of older children (if the family has older children).

4. 6 months+: the father can establish the right balance of love between mother and child; teach / convey the cultural values of the family, hobbies, traditions; it is desirable to participate in the education of the child, since the relationship between the child's academic progress in school and the active participation of the father in the educational process has been scientifically proven; it also demonstrates the male pattern of behaviour and helps to shape the child's sexual identity.

Rules of the Game by Elena Snarskaya. Part 1

At the first part of the training we will learn about how to be clear, concise and understandable with children. Unfortunately, our language in communicational process with a child often is saturated with too many questions, exclamations, instructions and other not very useful for understanding things. It was made in past time and we has been continuing today.

At the training we will try to move away from the traditional models and try to bring different models into the communication with children:

- We will practiced role-playing game to master the techniques of effective attention and support;
- Learn the technique of direct instruction;
- Explore our own position in the interaction with the child;
- Follow our own borders: where they go, how we hold them;
- Try to pay attention to matching a voice message and posture, gesture, glance, that accompany it.
