Montessori ditches iPad for Screen-Free Week
LA GRANGE PARK – The iPad normally present at The Children’s House Montessori School was missing for a week.
Jamie Archer, head of school at The Children’s House, 1015 E. 31st St., brought the device home from April 29 to May 3 for Screen-Free Week, an initiative sponsored by the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood. During the week, participants were encouraged to turn off the TV, video and mobile games and turn on the world around them by reading, daydreaming and enjoying family and friends.
The Children’s House held a related after-school activity each day of the week, open to its students and the public. Children could make a mosquito trap out of a 2-liter plastic bottle, a treasure box out of an Altoids tin and a rain stick out of a paper tube and beans.
