Happy New Year!!! We all seem to have had a wonderful holiday season! The kids were excited to share their favorite gifts and activities with their friends.
|So happy to see our friends:-)|
Montessori Work Time
We came back ready to work and learn! A new year with some new challenging lessons. Look what hard workers we are!

|Anthony working with the pink tower and brown stairs.|
|Aanya is working on her numbers using the large bead frame.|
|Braden working with the teen boards.|
We have begun the snack table during Montessori work period.
How it works: each morning the children are told what is on the menu. For example, 2 grahams & 4 apple slices or a banana. When the children are hungry during work, they may go get snack if a seat is open. No more than 3 at a time may be at the table. The child then gets a napkin, their snack and pours their water. Yes! I just said pour:-)
What it promotes: independence, respect and self awareness.
Strengthening our fine motor skills!
|Play dough is a great way to strengthen muscle tone in little hands. The squishing, flattening, rolling, and squashing all aide in developing children's muscles and encourages prewriting, cutting, using scissors, holding a pencil etc.|
In Science this week we talked about liquids and solids. We learned that water is a liquid and when it freezes and becomes ice it is a solid. To end our class we became ice excavators and dug animals out of ice.
- Please make sure your child bathrooms/is changed before arriving to school.
- There is NO SCHOOL on Monday, January 21st in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr Day.
Have a great weekend!
