Autism & Montessori: Spatial Awareness

The Montessori classroom is set up so that the child has to be aware of their surroundings. Children have lessons out on the floor, there are tables set up randomly, and the lessons have an assigned spot on the shelves. You have to look where you’re going so you don’t bump into things. I love that all the lessons are placed on shelves. This forces you to look at what you’re doing and coordinate where/how to place the item.

Here, my kiddo is returning his lesson to the second shelf. The long rectangular shape needs precise calculations. He did it!!!
