Morocco Préscolaire Learning Resource Ideas

Morocco is a country with a rich tapestry of culture, history, and natural beauty. A Préscolaire in Morocco that integrates the principles of Reggio, Steiner, and Montessori would provide an educational experience deeply rooted in the country’s unique heritage and environment. Here’s a comprehensive list of resources:

New Resources

  1. Manipulatives & Sensorial Materials:
    • Sand trays reflecting the Sahara desert.
    • Scent boxes with popular Moroccan aromas: argan, saffron, mint, etc.
  2. Language Materials:
    • Sandpaper letters in Arabic script.
    • Books that contain traditional Moroccan folktales and fables.
  3. Practical Life Materials (Montessori):
    • Miniature tagine pots, tea sets, and other tools to mimic traditional Moroccan food preparation.
  4. Mathematical Materials:
    • Counting sets featuring Moroccan symbols such as the Hand of Fatima or traditional mosaic patterns.
  5. Natural Materials:
    • Elements from the Moroccan environment: Sahara sand, seashells from coastal regions, and Atlas mountain rocks.
  6. Arts and Crafts:
    • Supplies for traditional Moroccan crafts such as zellige tile art or carpet weaving.
  7. Music & Movement:
    • Moroccan musical instruments like the darbouka, qraqab, and oud.

    • Gear suited for explorations in varied Moroccan climates, from the coastal regions to mountain treks.

Recycled Resources

  1. Old Clothes: Traditional Moroccan outfits like kaftans or djellabas for dress-up.
  2. Used Newspapers: Moroccan newspapers in Arabic and French for crafting and language activities.
  3. Cardboard Boxes: For crafting, construction play, or making miniature kasbahs.
  4. Old Kitchen Tools: Those linked to traditional Moroccan cooking, like couscous steamers.
  5. Fabric Scraps: Patterns reflecting Moroccan designs, ideal for crafting.

Local Resources & Crafts (specific to Morocco)

  1. Crafting Kits: Focused on making miniature Moroccan lanterns or leather crafts from places like Fez.
  2. Local Games Kits: Traditional games played during festivals or in medinas.
  3. Festival Kits: Resources related to traditional events like the Imilchil Marriage Festival.
  4. Traditional Tales Kits: Based on stories of the Berber tribes or the ancient city tales.
  5. Nature Exploration Kits: Highlighting unique Moroccan fauna and flora like the Barbary macaque or argan trees.
  6. Language Kits: Introducing kids to Darija (Moroccan Arabic) and Amazigh (Berber languages).
  7. Local Transport Kits: Miniature models of Moroccan camels, donkey carts, or the traditional blue boats seen in Essaouira.

By blending these resources with the Reggio, Steiner, and Montessori philosophies, a Préscolaire in Morocco would not only cater to the holistic development of children but also immerse them in the vibrant and diverse cultural heritage of Morocco, instilling in them a profound sense of identity and belonging.
