The three-hour work cycle is a hallmark of the Montessori school day. It is an uninterrupted work period during which children chose to work with materials as guided by the teacher. It offers an appropriate amount of time for the student to work individually, to work with peers, and to work with their teacher(s). Group activities and “circle time” are at the discretion of the teacher. Classroom assemblies, celebrations and student presentations are scheduled during the afternoon work period as often as feasible so as not to disrupt the morning work cycle.
