Video Clip from the Classroom for Home: Knobless Cylinders and Mat Rolling

Montessori teaching guides can make exercises seem stilted, so we wanted to show you a real life Knobless Cylinder exercise that includes mat rolling at the end. Notice how the mat doesn't really get rolled so neatly, but the child is trying very hard (despite being distracted by our camera and lights!)

That's a lovely video. It clearly shows all the children concentrating and working independently, as well as illustrating your point about the naturalness of the tidying up after the activity.
