We can’t believe how fast the year is flying by! There has been a lot of excitement in the classroom as we watched baby chicks hatch and completed our studies of Asia with a trip to see the Shanghai Circus.
The children have been learning the parts and body functions of fish and have just begun their studies of amphibians. We are excited to finish our studies of the timeline of life as we move into our research of early humans.
The children have enjoyed learning various units of measurement and delving deeper into more abstract math materials. We are beginning our studies of various land and water formations as we begin our continent research of Africa.
It’s also time for progress reports and conferences! Conference sign-up will be available during arrival.
Guidelines for a Successful Montessori Student
- Make sure your child gets enough sleep and nutritious food.
- Come to school on time. This helps set the tone for their day and creates balance for the whole community.
- Allow your child independence and the ability to make choices at home.
- Make sure your child is doing Montessori homework — helping with the chores around the home!
- Give your child plenty of time to be outdoors and away from screens. Allow them time to just be.
