Montessori Resource Packs

The Nursery School building programme across Sri-Lanka provides education to nearly 500 children per year. However, it was recognised that these schools needed support to improve general education levels. Besides a Teacher Training Centre and a library, resource packs were created to ensure these teaching aids supported and enhanced the Montessori teaching methodology. So the teachers have been taught at the Seeduwa Teacher Training Centre on the value and benefits of Montessori Resource packs. They were provided with re-training and a needs based teaching approach. Children will then learn by “hands on” creative activities.

Character Glove Puppets, or spoon puppets, or bag puppets, and masks are ideal teaching and communication aids for anyone working with young children. A sensitive message can be explained using the character glove puppet as an effective communication medium. Young learners like to identify with animals or fantasy characters, which makes a glove puppet an ideal medium for increasing their attention levels.
