We have done many projects focusing on birds and their nests over the past several weeks. Recently, we put nest-building materials into a beak-friendly bag in hopes that a bird or birds would “shop” from it and build a nest nearby for observation. We will see what happens!
This month, the class will learn about the fundamental needs of people. This provides the opportunity to introduce the children to how these needs have been met by various cultures throughout history. We also will be preparing for our spring festival, which will take place outside at Tall Pines Park on April 1. More information will be forthcoming.
Tips for School
Here are a few suggestions to help your child be 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 chores around the home!
- Give your child plenty of time to be outdoors and away from screens. Allow them time to just be!
