Hello! Thank you for your blog. It’s really interesting. I’ve been reading your article on “Accommodations in Primary” and I am intrigued by your claim that there are 54 steps involved in flower arranging. I would like to learn more about these steps and indeed about the steps involved in other activities. Where would I be able to find some information on this? Or could you kindly write a blog piece about it?
The steps involved in each activity are something you learn about when you take a Montessori teacher training course. In those courses, you are taught how to present flower arranging and all of the many other activities in the classroom. But more than that, in an AMI training course, you are taught the method behind determining the steps in any lesson. If you'd like to learn more about training or see Montessori in action, visit montessoriguide.org.
Here is a link to my full write-up of the flower arranging lesson. I've revised it slightly and it is now down to a mere 50 steps :)
