A Peek at Our Week in the Cherry Blossom Classroom!
We started our focus lesson on Animal Classification this week! We talked about vertebrates and invertebrates and took some time to feel our own back bones. Then we introduced our first animal group – Mammals! We learned that mammals have hair or fur, are warm blooded, give birth to live young, and that babies drink their mother’s milk. We were very excited to learn that we, as human beings, are mammals! Ms. Sam also sang a fun song with us this week that included animals from all of our different groups!
Working In Pairs!
One of the benefits of a Montessori classroom is the ability for older students to work with younger students. As our school year continues, we will see more older children offer to help a younger student that needs a little direction. This has so many benefits! The older student will learn patience and understanding as they work with the younger student. The younger student is more open to accepting redirection and problem solving. They both will learn empathy for others as they experience that no two people learn the exact same way.
Enrichment Spotlight – Library with Ms. Cat!
The Cherry Blossom class went upstairs to the Library to visit Ms. Cat this week. She read us a hilarious book called Fall Mixed Up and we giggled a lot! Ms. Cat also sang some fall songs with us!
