If you guessed that they were all Montessori students,   you’ve guessed right! 👍

They all studied in Montessori schools, which are all about making independent learners and creative thinkers.

Now you may be thinking, "Wow that's great and all but I didn't go to a Montessori School. How does this information apply to me?" 🤷

Jep Robertson from Duck Dynasty says,

Don't worry. I didn’t go to a Montessori school either!

But I did teach in a Montessori School, I've got a Montessori Early Childhood Diploma, and I dedicated my master's thesis to Montessori — hashtag team Montessori! ❤️

So, today I'll share with you the main secrets of Montessori I've personally used and how you can use them too to boost your learning and adopt a Montessori-like way of thinking.

Apply Montessori hacks to your study habits

"Alright, I have set up my Montessori-inspired space...now what?"

A young man with a serious expression saying,

Well, learning is about where you study, when, and how you do it. Start with these easy Montessori hacks to plan your studies and start your journey as a Montessori-inspired thinker:

1: Dive deep into what interests you to keep you motivated.

Montessori believed we learn best when we're deeply interested in something.

Have a favorite video game, social media app, or Netflix show? Why not learn how they're made? Or even create your own app or show script! Wouldn't that be awesome?

2: Personalize your study plan to make it as unique as you.

In a Montessori classroom, each student works at their own pace and chooses materials to work with that match their interest and ability level.

Whether you prefer learning by watching tutorials, following a course, or reading books, it's all ok, choose what works best for you!

3: Train your brain to improve your focus.

One Montessori technique to improve focus is called the "three-period lesson:" Naming, Association, and Recall.

Use this technique whenever you learn something new, like a new language!

4: Practice your learning to deepen your knowledge.

Montessori learners repeat the same exercises as much as they like until they really get them. Then, they move on to more difficult activities to keep growing their learning.

Try this at home, practice until you feel confident, and then add more challenging materials to your studies.

5: Check your work to see how you're doing.

Another unique aspect of Montessori is that learning materials are self-correcting. Imagine getting immediate feedback while learning — really cool isn't it?

Try using Kahoot, Quizlet, or Discovery Education to make your own self-correcting puzzles, flashcards, or quizzes.

6: Teach what you've learned to become an expert and help others gain valuable information too!

Montessori classrooms have 3-year mixed-age students. The idea behind this is that older students can teach younger ones.

Share what you are learning with a friend, it'll help you to understand and remember everything better!
