  13. 13. Conclusion : Dogme teaching is applicable for my Kindergarten’s class.Suggestion  This all entails hard work.  It is required to do it in a large room with several teachers.  It’s preferable to perform in a class whose children have mastered the art of indivual play of Montessori and with good proficiency in English (at least are capable to communicate in English).  It is suggested that the lesson plans to be planned and performed in a week time and to make sure that the three-period lesson of Montessori is doable.  Teacher should also encourage their students to actively partake in the provided activity.01/09/2012 Icha – Jelta conference
