Line Time:
We will be practicing for the Christmas Program.

 

Cultural Subjects:
Your children can now count to ten in 13 languages (English, Latin, Sign Language, Spanish, German, French, Japanese, Greek, Arabic with the Lebanese Dialect, Italian, Russian, Romanian, Swedish, and Tagolog).

 

Peek In Our Classroom:

Same boy, different material/ extension. This boy is in a Sensitive Period where he loves working in the Sensorial Area particularly making creations (extensions). Montessori sensitive periods refer to a period of time when a child’s interests are focused on developing a particular skill or knowledge area. During what Maria Montessori describes as the child’s absorbent mind, birth to age 6, is when most sensitive periods occur.

 

During inclement weather we put on kid’s yoga or kid exercise videos and the students love to follow along. Working on gross motor skills helps a child gain strength and confidence in his/her body. It also helps them get exercise and physical activity, which is important for a healthy lifestyle, our teacher has been trained by the best PE coaching companies, she knows what the proper exercises are for a toddler. Developing these skills helps a childs ability to do more complex skills in future activities, such as playing soccer with a team.

 

This boy discovered that the difference in size per block is the size of the smallest piece of the Pink Tower.

The aim for the Pink Tower:
Direct-
-Visual discrimination of dimensions.

Indirect-
– Refinement of voluntary movement by placing the cubes one on top of the other with one single movement of the hand.
While doing this movement, the child is refining visual-motor coordination and is called upon to concentrate.
– Preparation for mathematics.

 

Friends working on Knobbless Cylinders. The aim of these cylinders is to develop child’s fine-motor movements, concentration, hand-eye coordination, and visual perception of dimension. The material also provides experiences of seriation and gives the child basic language important in math.
