What is Normalization?  It's a term we use in Montessori to describe a child or children that display the following characteristics while engaged in the classroom.

  • profound concentration
  • love of order
  • love of work
  • spontaneous self-discipline
  • attachment to reality
  • independence & initiative
  • love of silence and being alone
  • obedience
  • pure joy (joyfulness)

It was fun to discover that Humphrey is Normalized in her classroom...when did that happen?
