“Repetition is the secret of perfection.”
— Maria Montessori



Today’s Excerpt:

Watch “The Power of Not Giving Up” (1-min video) to see a child practicing again and again to jump onto a stool.

As you watch, count how many tries it takes — and note that those are just the attempts on camera.


  • How did the child feel when they succeeded? What did they do?

Explain that this feeling of joy is available to all of us when we practice hard.
