An invitation to visit Ms. Gerken’s grade one class was extended to our class to listen to an audio story the first graders had been working on. The story was, “Scaredy Squirrel.” We watched and  listened to the story while trying to guess some of the students voices who were our friends in Montessori last year. We enjoyed our time together to share student/peer learning.

Thank you 1G for the invitation!

Happy Chinese New Year! The Year of the Dog is here and with it we enjoyed not only learning about the meaning and traditions of the Chinese culture, but the the importance of this celebration for Chinese people around the world. We decorated our classroom door to welcome in a happy and healthy year ahead for us all.


In our class we were given a presentation by Ryan’s mum who shared with us an origami paper cutting craft which is  famous in China. We watched as she folded, drew and then cut her paper to create the Chinese character “Spring.”

Thank you to our classroom mother’s who came in to help and guide us with our own creations.

While some of our classmates made their paper craft, others were busy making their “Year of the Dog” paper lantern.

What a fun and meaningful activity for the children that can be hung at home to bring on a year of good health and happiness!

Valentine’s Day and the crafts leading up to the day is always filled with a lot of love for our family and friends. This year we made a Valentine’s card and for those interested a love heart paper chain was offered as a shelf activity. We sang songs all about love in morning circle times and joined in with elementary’s “Love Bug” day. We all tried our best to buzz together for a class photo with most of  looking into the camera lense with a smile!

A tradition in our classroom that the children enjoy each year is the trimming of the classroom Christmas tree. All the decorations are laid out in front of the children to choose their favorite pieces. As you can see, the care that each child takes to hang an ornament or wrap a long piece of tinsel around the tree makes for a joyful classroom.

Joining in with the elementary school for the Christmas concert with our dances and songs really had us in the Christmas spirit, which the children enjoyed performing to their parents and peers.
