Happy New Year Blossoms! We were very excited to be back at school this week and see our friends. Our days were full of chatting and laughing together.
This week we reviewed our classroom routines and expected behaviors. We settled back into our classroom after our long break. We reviewed how to be respectful of others and our materials within our room. We also took some time to talk all about our winter breaks! What we did, who we saw, what our favorite parts were. We even added a fireworks science experiment to our discussion about New Year’s Eve!
Ms. Sam reviewed the Geometric Cabinet with our younger Blossoms this week. They discussed polygons and quadrilaterals!
Our older Blossoms were introduced to Multiplication this week with Mr. John in Kindergarten Lesson. In Handwriting, they worked on writing words that connect using a dip connector. Reader’s Workshop and Writer’s Workshop discussed vowels, blends, and writing words and sentences!
Welcome to Our New Friend!
A Special Visitor!
Peek into Work Time: Cultural
We were all about the map puzzles this week! The Montessori map cabinet is an important work in the classroom. Children use this material as an introduction to Geography. We begin with learning the names of the different continents. As a child becomes more comfortable with an individual map puzzle, we then introduce the child to the names of the countries within the continent. Children are encouraged to trace and label the countries within the continent, sneaking in more work for those fine motor skills!
