Classroom Review

Front Class

Our new school year has started with the opening of our remodeled building.  It is beautiful both inside and out!!  The kids are doing a good job of getting used to a new school routine.  The beginning of a school year always involves meeting new kids and teachers, understanding the rules of courtesy and kindness, remembering to put work away, push in chairs and to start being self aware and independent.

Circle time has been about learning each others names, singing, movement, and practicing sitting around the circle.  We have recently started our Wednesday Show & Tell, learning the Pledge of Allegiance, and doing the daily calendar.  Saturday, Sept. 21st, was International Peace Day for the Montessori Community so we’ve talked a lot about peace and celebrated on Monday, Sept 23rd by joining with the back class to form a circle outside of holding hands and singing a practiced song about peace.

As summer slowly fades away, we will learn about the fall season.  The children will have work and art projects that will emphasize this new season.

We are off to a grand start!  Your children are delightful and fun which will make for a wonderful year.

Back Class:

We​ ​had​ ​a​ ​great​ ​start​ ​this​ ​school​ ​year.​ ​Kids​ ​have​ ​been​ ​introduced​ ​to​ ​each​ ​other,​ ​and​ ​are​ ​busy meeting​ ​old​ ​friends​ ​and​ ​making​ ​new​ ​ones.​ ​We​ ​have​ ​talked​ ​about​ ​our​ ​classroom​ ​and​ ​circle​ ​time rules.​ ​It’s​ ​nice​ ​to​ ​see​ ​the​ ​returning and new children settling​ ​in,​ ​learning​ ​to​ ​take​ ​care​ ​of​ ​the​ ​classroom​ ​by​ ​rolling​ ​their mats​ ​and​ ​putting​ ​their​ ​materials​ ​away​ ​nicely,​ ​so​ ​they​ ​are​ ​ready​ ​for​ ​the​ ​next​ ​person.​ ​We’ve​ ​been singing​ ​“Buzz,​ ​Buzz,​ ​Bumblebee”​ ​to​ ​help​ ​us​ ​remember​ ​each​ ​other’s​ ​names.​ ​Namaste song to calm ourselves. Our grace​ ​and courtesy​ ​lessons​ ​are​ ​helping​ ​children​ ​to​ ​be​ ​kind​ ​and​ ​helpful​ ​to​ ​each​ ​other.
We​ ​have​ ​talked​ ​about​ ​fire​ ​drills​ ​and​ ​fire​ ​safety.​ ​We​ ​have​ ​also​ ​practiced​ ​our​ ​first​ ​fire​ ​drill​ ​for​ ​this school​ ​year.
We learned about plants and parts of the plant , children got to see a whole plant with its roots, stem, leaves and flowers and got to observe it up close. As​ ​​ ​a​ ​small​ ​unit,​ ​we​ ​have​ ​started​ ​learning​ ​about​ ​apples;​ ​talking​ ​about​ ​the​ ​parts​ ​of​ ​an​ ​apple, tasting​ ​apples,​ ​and​ ​learning​ ​different​ ​kind​s ​of​ ​apples.​ ​Soon​ ​we​ ​will​ ​be​ ​talking​ ​about​ ​fall​ ​and​ ​how our​ ​world​ ​changes​ ​during​ ​this​ ​season.​ ​We​ ​will​ ​also​ ​learn​ ​about​ ​pumpkins.
We​ ​are​ ​so​ ​pleased​ ​with​ ​the​ ​children’s​ ​progress​ ​so​ ​far,​ ​and​ ​we​ ​look​ ​forward​ ​to​ ​seeing​ ​everyone continue​ ​to​ ​grow​ ​this​ ​year!
