What We're Learning: February

Throughout the month of February, we will be analyzing Rocks, Minerals, Fossils, and playing with Dinosaurs. Wednesday is show and tell day. Please try to have your child, when choosing something to bring to school, choose something which correlates to the curriculum. It could be a book, picture, stuffed animal, plastic figure, beginning sound object or number activity etc. This is a great and fun way for the program to come home and have you become a part of their school experience. Opportunities that involve the family will promote your child’s learning at home. By initiating conversations about the program activities, you can exchange information with your child.

We will demonstrate and practice letter formation of upper and lower case “Gg”, “Dd” and “Ss” this month. The children will learn the name and the sound that letter makes. Each letter is illustrated with an object which begins with that sound. The children will also learn sign language of that letter. We do introduce 3 words with the beginning sound of that letter in sign language. Download the letter and sound chart if you would like to practice with your child at home.

For more information about the February lesson plan and other information, please see The School News parent newsletter.*

Some of you have expressed an interest in extending your child’s day this spring. We strongly recommend all children who are going to be attending kindergarten next fall to consider adding on the longer day. Extending the day will prepare your child physically and emotionally for the longer day at school. This will allow us the advantage of conditioning them for a longer day and to promote their social and academic developments, and further preparing them for kindergarten. We offer the PM program from 12:00- 2:30 T-W-Th. If you are interested please see or call Sharon. For the children who added on the PM program, please remember, to supply your children with their lunch in a lunch box, so that they can develop the necessary skills expected when attending Kindergarten this fall.

Montessori Children–Young Minds of the Future

The mission of Montessori Children is to develop a well rounded student who is eager to learn, is self-confident, and is a contributing member of society who has the zest and skills for lifelong learning. This will be accomplished in a nurturing prepared environment utilizing a comprehensive preschool level curriculum. Montessori classes place children in multi-age groups, forming communities in which the older children spontaneously share their knowledge with the younger ones. Our Montessori teachers are prepared to foster all children to reach their fullest potential at their own unique pace with the best practices in efforts aiding the children's natural learning tendencies as they unfold in this “prepared environment” to aid the most profound young minds of the future.
