The New School Year

| August 31, 2015 | 0 Comments

photo (2) Monday we welcomed five new friends to Children’s House #2 and began our new academic school year.  Montessori education starts with how we occupy the classroom space, so our first week focuses on circle time manners, handling materials respectfully and classroom routines.  We have plenty of getting to know you activities like forming dyads and doing floor size puzzles together. We even practiced formal introductions in circle.  By the end of the week, we had worked our way up to a full ninety minute work cycle.  At the beginning of the year, Montessori works are limited to materials that are familiar to most children and easy to utilize; peg boards, beading works and puzzles are examples.  We had a wonderful week and on Friday we had our usual Friday dance party.

Tell your friends about us!
