Long cloth pouches: New colors and video!

Our new video gives a quick demonstration of Maitri Learning's long cloth pouches being used to store the Phonetic Word Cards. There are 17 cloth pouch colors available so you can color code to your heart's content! ⁠

New Apron Color: Sage!

We are very excited to introduce our new sage apron! We make these from eco-friendly laminated cotton so you can wipe off spills and hang to dry. This fabric is ideal when you need some water-resistance for activities in the garden, working with plants or leaves, or even cutting pickles!

We've just uploaded the recording from the virtual Michigan Montessori Society Conference that happened November 6, 2021. Julia Volkman, Maitri Learning's founder, led a delightfully interactive conversation with about 80 Montessorians on a Saturday morning.

They took a big picture look at the role of the following key ideas in learning:

  • Plasticity
  • Brain networks
  • Dynamic skill development
  • Executive functions
  • Attention
  • Mindfulness
  • Stress
  • Emotion
  • Memory
  • Metacognition

Thanks to MMS for pulling this together. We were so happy to sponsor this wonderful event.
