Your children won't be inspired to do much if their environment is chaos. It's a practical idea for life in general, but it's an important tenet of Montessori. Part of the process is, in fact, seeing organization in your surroundings. The children didn't receive new curriculum with this latest overhaul of their school room, but they've been invigorated with an enthusiasm for their work that I haven't seen for a while. Needless to say, I am happy with that.
