Control of Error

Montessori materials are designed with control of error and Montessori work is designed to be checked by the child.  This way children will discover and correct their own mistakes.  Thus, making mistakes becomes a normal part of learning something new rather than an opportunity for embarrassment or correction by others.

Montessori children learn that a mistake is a reason to try again, not an indictment of their capacity to learn or be good at something.
