What’s Happening Right Now…
Front desk: Lower el students join upper el and middle school students and head up to Jefferson Park.  They are going to “Run in Circles”!  This is our two week training program for the wonderful Broad Street Mile Run and Fundraiser.  GO BUZZ BEES!  This year, money can be donated to our very own Parent Association of Central!  Families may claim a V hour for each registration.  Register your child and/or yourself!  Everyone run for Central!  Follow this link http://www.vcubroadstreetmile.com/register/ to register for the Spirit Mile Run that begins at 11:10! 

Middle School: Students round the corner at Jefferson Park. One by one they run past the teacher, slapping their hands each lap they make around the park. Tired, but excited,  the students line up and walk back to school, talking about the training they just did for this year’s Broad Street Mile! At the school a few students grab a much deserved snack as others research online history resources for our U.S. History timeline.

Lower El: As the students get back into the morning work cycle, after their run at the park, the first year students gather for a handwriting lesson. An older student gives lessons on the layers of the earth and rolls out colorful clay for a model. A student new to Central works with the golden beads, forming combinations of two digit numbers. A peaceful beginning to the new school year!


Upper El: A student gives a lesson on the building blocks of life. “Cells are everywhere.” A student gives lessons on origami for our paper crane project “If each student makes one a day, we can make 6,700 by the end of the year!”


Amanda’s Primary: A first year student receives a lesson on the ‘teen beads’ from an older friend. Across the room, a second year student concentrates on the 50 board for the first time.  A third year student decides to state a map of South America.  Two second year friends enjoy matching phonetic objects to their corresponding beginning sounds.

Infant:  A walking infant and a crawling infant sit and look at a book about courting animals. A non-mobile infant works to rock her legs to one side, an early attempt to roll over and gain more control.  A quickly crawling friend cursorily reaches for her older friends ravioli – she is invited to have a seat and try her own food.

Toddler: A new friend explores a transportation themed puzzle.  They enthusiastically line up the different vehicles, moving them slowly across the table, dropping on the floor.  An older friend walks by, notices the dropped puzzle pieces and says, “Uh-Oh,” and picks up the pieces and puts them back on the table. The new friend says, “Thank You”.

Venessa’s Primary: A quiet buzz fills the room as arrive in the classroom and wash their hands to start the day off to a clean start. A PI student works on the “rain boot” scrubbing work.  A brand new student explores the trucks and rocks work. Two PIII students find objects to use a level and see if they are perfectly balanced. Another student puts the finishing touch on the North America map and labels Mexico.

I can see that there are a lot of activities happening in your Montessori. I bet that your school is full of events and programs which is good for students especially for the children. They have lots of stored energy and having activities not only inside the classroom is a good way to release that energy of them. Learning should not also be limited in the four corners of the room. Let them explore outside. Good Job!

Fun Run. For me, I guess this activity is all about bringing a sense of community, camaraderie. It is also an effective way where we can help others and those in need. We are aware that fun runs are effective means to raise funds for various charities and also because of this, we gain awareness for various causes. This does benefit us not just our health but also we feel good knowing we can be a big help to other people.

Nowadays, Universities are taking plagiarism - using someone else's words or ideas without giving proper credit to the author of the original - very seriously and are fighting against it. In the best-case scenario,

All kids have a great time.I think all activities are really very awesome and children enjoy them fully.You offers a great plan for the kids and kids not only enjoy but learn something from each activity.

Writing your own articles takes time. It doesn't mean that hiring article authors is without its own problem though.
