This email was received by one of my teachers who shared it with me. It was from a parent thanking the teacher for “all you’ve done” for the student, and included the following:
“…right now she’s vacuuming the mess the dog made…because ‘I want to practice for school.’ Yesterday…she swept entire kitchen floor without being asked to ‘practice for school’. :) so thank you for saving me extra chores tonight:)”
It’s a true Montessori moment when a child finds joy in cleaning!
