Dawn Whitley was seated at a child-sized pine table. Before her was a small gray rug underneath a long, narrow block filled with wooden posts arranged from largest to smallest. With steady, calm hands, she removed each post one by one and set them in line on the table. Her gaze was focused as she circled the edged of each cylinder and returned them to the block. Whitley was demonstrating how a child at Lodi Montessori would complete the knobbed cylinder job during class.

"There's a sense of purpose to each task," she said, gesturing at the more than 100 jobs around the classroom.
