Montessori Academy's vision is that each student
will become an independent, confident, motivated learner, and a responsible community member as a result of the dynamic partnership between
students, parents, and teachers.
This partnership within the exceptional Montessori environment, while developing these characteristics, enables each student to become a life-long learner.
We have had a very busy January and February. We were excited to welcome three new friends from the toddler program in January. Taj, Tato and Riley all joined us last month from toddler, and we will potentially be having two new friends joining the Room 2 community in March.
January also marked the beginning of a new artist study for us that we have carried through the month of February. We have been exploring the work of Georges Seurat by using dots (Seurat’s method) to paint and color. The children enjoyed using a variety of different art mediums to create their own works of art so much that we decided to continue our study through the month of February. We will begin a new artist study in March.
In addition to Seurat, February also saw us saying good bye to North America as we began our study of Antarctica in Geography. Also, in Geography, we began to discuss why we celebrate President’s Day by learning about Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. The children were also eager to begin exploring the new science lessons about our oceans and the fascinating creatures that live there. We have also begun learning about reptiles and amphibians (with our focus currently on frogs and turtles)!
February has definitely been a busy month for Room 2. With all the new lessons and units to study, we have also found time to celebrate our 100th day of school and Valentine’s Day! We would like to thank everyone for coming to our Parent Workshop and hope that it helped you have a better understanding of all the incredible work your children do in the Sensorial area. Also, we would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has provided snack for us in January and February. They have been wonderful!
