This week, the children
During the last week of March, we will have two field trips which focus on migration and immigration: the play “Seedfolks” at Seattle Children’s Theater, and the Great Migration series of paintings by Jacob Lawrence at Seattle Art Museum. In Morado, we will be preparing all month. We will create poems about home or moving, have some homework to find out how each person got here, learn about animal and human migration and immigration, learn a little bit about slavery in the United States, about the Great Migration, and about Jacob Lawrence’s series. We will try out making our own series of paintings that tell a story by painting the story of Montessori Children’s House to celebrate the 30 year anniversary of the school. This will be on display at the Montessori Week celebration March 18th. Also, remember Hop-a-thon and scholastic book orders are due March 3rd.
We hope you have a good weekend. See you on Monday.
