It has been a great start of a brand new year at Montessori Corner. We have wonderful new and returning families. The children have transitioned beautifully into our school routine. Our returning children have welcomed their new friends and everyone is buckled up for new challenges. We are looking forward to an exciting year of growth. September has been busy introducing our specials and our extra-curriculum activities. Our weekly lesson plans are in place as are our newsletters to families.
This month, we harvested apples and celebrated Johnny Appleseed. We incorporated his legacy to our science, language arts and practical life areas. In science, we dissected apples to see what was inside. We classified different kinds of apples and had an apple tasting experiment.
This year we have partnered with Accelerate Learning to provide our teachers with a tremendous amount of resources through STEMscopes, a purposeful, engaging science curriculum filled with experiments and activities for our children: Animals habitats, pushes and pulls and much more.
This year in literacy we are introducing storytelling to help our children build their public speaking skills.
Looking ahead, our social emotional reports will be sent to families during the month of October. We will enjoy our Halloween Parade and Party.
Come experience learning in the wonderful Montessori way!
