We have spent the month of September getting to know each other: learning each other’s names, temperaments and settling into our own routines. The returning students have been working hard to make the new students feel welcomed in our community. We have also been working on grace and courtesy of a Montessori classroom: using walking feet, walking around works set up on the floor, respecting works of others and others’ need to focus, which includes not interrupting someone’s work and using soft voices in the class.
On September 21st we celebrated the International Day of Peace by joining the children all over the world in singing “Light a Candle for Peace”. It is becoming our little tradition, as we have done it last year as well. We have also been taking a moment almost every morning to sit down, calm our bodies, light a candle and “make silence” together.
Getting together for a class picnic was a lot of fun, as was making pickles, having our first music circle with Ms. Amy and first art with Ms. Michelle.
Next month we are going to talk about ourselves – our bodies: bones, muscles, organs and our senses. We will also touch on our emotions and the way we express them.
