The Montessori Silence Game

The Montessori Silence Game is a fabulous way to help kiddos learn about self regulation.  It helps develop concentration and self discipline.  Kiddos also learn the value of silence as they participate in the game, which can be a great thing in this busy world we live in.

The Montessori Silence Game is very simple and can be played at home, school, or outdoors.  There are many variations that you can try out.  To help you understand how the game works, I've collected a number of resources from Montessori homes and schools.  This post also includes children's books about silence to help your child better understand and then apply the concept.
