Allowing creativity in investigation…

This month tiny humans at wss were busy learning about Mexico, enjoying sharpening their senses with sensorial activities and building motor strength. Children work like busy bees during the Montessori work period, when appropriate depending on the age group, inside their classrooms. They take their work outdoors to explore too.  All children, especially toddlers and preschoolers enjoy movement and gross motor activities daily both in and outdoors.

In the younger toddler rooms, children are beginning to speak and learning the names of healthy fruits.

Matching them together

Children are also beginning to eat more foods at this age, here they are having a fruit tasting! They talked about healthy vs unhealthy foods and looked at My fruit book. 

They are learning simple sign language words such as Thank you, finish and more. They also looked at many Dr Seuss books in honor of Dr Seuss’ Birthday.

As the weather began changing, Toddlers started exploring clouds and rain. They explored wet and dry surfaces and worked on self care through many practical life exercises; wiping the windows, cleaning the table and hand washing.

Exploring water beads

In another classroom children explored the Lifecycle of a Butterfly by talking about Metamorphosis. They read and used Eric Carle’s The very hungry caterpillar as inspiration for art. They also made sombreros by stringing beads and hanging them from hats, as part of the Mexican cultural unit.

Preschoolers were busy problem solving and critical thinking while also exploring their creative sides. They got to go outside on a nature walk and investigate whether plants have begun budding and brought back some to explore. They then looked at some non fiction books to identify different phases of plant growth. They also began violin lessons during music class and made their personally crafted violins.
