Serendipitous Success

We have a Parent Night every school year where the children show their parents the room and the work.  We teachers and assistants sit back and let the children take the lead.  It is sometimes necessary for me to sit on my hands as I see:  1)  Children using the material incorrectly, and 2)  Children choosing material that they have never been presented!  Imagine my delight (all you Montessorians will understand) when this girl went up to the sandpaper letters, traced them, and told her parents the sound!  I'm glad I decided to display the letters this way.  It takes up a great deal of space but gives the letters the importance they deserve.
