An Observer's Notebook:
From Maren Schmidt: "... An Observer's Notebook...gives us a myriad of ways to observe children in our Montessori prepared environments by showing us how to connect with what we want to learn from the children through observation; how to obtain and record our impressions; how we can reflect and understand the patterns in our data; and how we can enable our deeper reflection and practice with our observations and information.
