What’s Happening Right Now…

 

Toddler: The sound of excited laughter echoes through the building.  The class is spending their rainy morning playtime having a dance party inside.  A child works hard to attach a bracelet of bells to their wrist.   After a few good tries, the child says “help please!”  Once the bells are secure, the child shakes their wrist up, down, left, and right and laughs at the wonderful ringing the bells produce. 

Upper Elementary and Middle School: Fabric, cymbals, costumes, and props are moved around and rearranged in the clamor of the scene change.  Students are practicing their upcoming performance of The Cat that went to Heaven.  In a corner of the room a student in a cat mask practices pouncing.  Two middle schoolers finish science experiments, and while they wait for their group meeting, one teaches the other to play chess.  Another student works on planning the camping trip, hoping that the forecast clears for the weekend. 

Lower Elementary: Several friends have gone on a go trip to the Maggie Walker House.  Two friends are making Minerals for the Lower Elementary play and designing costumes and making a list of supplies they might need.  Songs and poems are being written and created for the play!

Amanda’s Primary: A second and third year child work together on the cube chain set.  Two first years students practice cutting with scissors.  This is a tricky task for tiny hands, they proudly exclaim, “I did it!” A third year student chooses the novel Tree and writes a list of the words they read.  Another child accepts the challenge of mixing up all forty knobbed cylinders and restoring them to the corresponding apertures. 

Venessa’s Primary:  The students are hard at work this morning.  A primary 1 student works on the parts of the flower.  Another primary 1 student helps a fellow friend find a “change of clothes” in their bag because they had an accident.  A primary 3 student works on carrot cutting, and serves a brand new visiting friend.  A primary 3 student works on setting up a dynamic addition equation using the golden materials.

 

Infant:  A sleepy infant wakes from a long nap on a rainy morning.  The child rises and slowly walks over to a table and eases themselves into a weaning chair.  The child delicately signs that they would like to “eat, please”.  Once their food is spread out on their placemat, the child either signs “Thank You” or blows a kiss…it’s difficult to say which!

I think this blog belongs to Montessori school which is famous in all over the world due to its quality study pattern and shinning students. That’s why there is my suggestion for people to read the moments which are shared here because these can be informative in its own sense.
