Montessori Monday – How to Prepare a Peace Corner

How to Prepare a Peace Corner“Establishing lasting peace is the work of education; all politics can do is keep us out of war.” Maria Montessori

A peace corner is perfect for homes as well as schools. It can be used for conflict resolution, encouraging a peaceful environment, and instilling peaceful habits and attitudes in children. A peace corner (whether or not it’s actually in a corner) is commonly found in both Montessori schools and Montessori homeschools.

Articles with Ideas for Setting up a Peace Corner

You’ll find LOTS of ideas for setting up a peace corner in my Montessori-Inspired Peace Education Activities from last year.  Here are some activities from posts either published since that post (or some helpful posts that I wasn’t able to highlight in last year’s post):

Note: The peace lily is the number one plant for improving air quality: 10 Houseplants for Clean Air and Eco Kids from Organic Aspirations. Additional note: the peace lily is poisonous if ingested, so you shouldn’t have one if your child might try to eat it (unless it’s out of reach).

Shining Mountains Press has a great reminder of the important role parents play in encouraging peace: Parents Model Peaceful Behavior.
