A hands-on learning environment that is designed to aid children in their development of independence, concentration, coordination, and order. Montessori subjects include Practical Life, Sensorial, Cultural, Math, and Language. I will incorporate electives into our curriculum which will include, but not limited to Music, Sign Language, Physical Education, and a Monthly Unit of Study. In Practical Life, we will practice necessary practical life skills such as using good manners, taking care of ourselves and our environment, learning how to use different utensils and tools, and may go as far as learning how to sew and iron. In Sensorial, we will use our senses to explore different materials, sort and grade objects, and learn some geometry along the way. Cultural contains age appropriate lessons in world cultures, zoology, botany, astronomy, geography, and geology. In Math, we will cover all state standards using materials and lessons that progress from concrete to abstract, making the more advanced mathematical concepts easier to understand. In Language, we will cover all the state standards using self-correcting materials. The lessons range from learning new vocabulary, learning phonics, reading, writing, and grammar. My goal this year is for my students to gain confidence and a love of learning.
Our day will consist of two snack times and a family-style lunchtime. We ask that parents bring a backpack fully stocked. Please make sure to include all that apply: any bathroom needs, labeled sippy cups, lunch, a change of clothes, proper outdoor clothing (as needed), a favorite blankie or lovie for nap time. Please label all items.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to some severe food allergies, we need to be very careful with what foods enter the classroom. We will have instructions on off-limit food items for lunches and ALL SNACKS WILL BE PROVIDED as part of the supply fee. Snacks will be provided using the Safe Foods list that we will post for the class, but you are welcome to send any snacks that also align with the Safe Food list. Our menu and class activities will be on our class calendar that the teacher sends out on a monthly basis.
Supply Fee: $75 supply fee per semester
