    How do you cope with today’s children’s short attention span…. possibly due to too much screen time and immediate gratification? ( I teach Art to primary grades) Thank you.

      It is certainly a challenge to teachers, isn’t it, Jackie? If there’s any way to encourage parents to limit their children’s screen time, that would be most important, but not always easy to do if you teach in a public school. Is there a way to take your students outside for a walk before focusing on making art? Or better yet, take them outside to observe nature and to draw or paint what they see. Or collect objects from nature to use in their art projects. Too many schools these days don’t give children enough outside time to burn off energy, which is a great antidote to too much screen time.

    Hi, I would love the link for the PDF Connie mentioned re the differences between Waldorf and Montessorri education. I cannot see it here. Thanks :-)

      I’m sorry the link was missing, Mairi! I believe this is the document Connie referred to: A Look at Waldorf and Montessori. I have also added it to the blog post. Thanks for pointing out that it was missing!
