Shoes!

“Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed.” – Maria Montessori

This week, we began working on learning how to put on our own shoes.

We also continued to enjoy the beautiful weather!
We love our friends!

Learning with our heads and our hands

“The child gives us a beautiful lesson – that in order to form and maintain our intelligence, we must use our hands.” -Maria Montessori 

On Mondays, we go visit Ms. Jessica for storytime in the library.
We like to read lots of books in the classroom, too.
The sandbox was a favorite activity this week.
Sand is a great way to practice pouring, scooping, and other fine motor control.
And, it feels so good running between your fingers!
The new flower arranging job was a big hit.
We learn with our hands!

Part of a Greater Community

“There is a great sense of community within the Montessori classroom, where children of differing ages work together in an atmosphere of cooperation rather than competitiveness. There is respect for the environment and for the individuals within it, which comes through experience of freedom within the community.” – Maria Montessori

We enjoyed having some slightly cooler days this week, which let us spend a little more time outside.

The toddlers love watching older students. Sometimes they come over to talk!
It’s fun to see siblings on the playground!
Everyone loves it when Mr. Dana comes to say hi!
Even the smallest things are interesting to little hands.
We love looking at pictures of our families and friends.

They are exploring everything around them, enjoying the playground and eating together!
