I was hoping you’d touch on the difference between giving presentation (Montessori) and allowing them to explore materials (rie). For example, I think of Janets article about not teaching kids how to draw but let’s say I put out metal insets for my kids, I struggle to find a balance between the two philosophies in that regard.
