Montessori teaching is all about hands-on;
checkerboards and microscopes all to learn upon.
Montessori demonstrates peace and how to be fair,
as well as kindness, friendship, respect, and tender loving care.
The classroom is our place to roam, it’s almost like our second home.
We learn to manage time and to be respectful,
and not to be unthankful, unkind, mean, or neglectful.
We have to thank Maria Montessori for all of the above;
and for thinking up the education that we students know and love.
