We Are Busy Workers!!

A full month of school has already finished and Ms. Sallie and Ms. Barbara’s Class has been working hard with many different activities in the classroom.  There are 5 areas in a Montessori classroom:  Practical Life (Activities of Daily Living), Sensorial, Math, Language and Cultural.  Children go around the classroom choosing their own work which they have been presented (lessons), sometimes needing a little encouragement.  We have been talking about doing challenging work with good concentration.  Even though it is still early in the school year, most children surprise us with what they choose and are interested in doing.  We would like you to take a peek at what the goes on during our work time—a little of everything…!
