What We're Learning: April

During the month of April, we will be learning about Plants, Flowers, springtime and the life cycle of the chicken, ladybug, butterfly and tadpole. This would be a good time to check your child’s clothing bin in the bathroom. They probably have outgrown the clothes in there now and will also need some spring time weather clothes!

The children will be observing the Painted Lady Butterfly Metamorphosis. We will be watching through the fine netting of this pop-up butterfly abode as caterpillars shed their skins and form chrysalides, then emerges as beautiful butterflies. The children will also be observing the life cycle of the ladybug. The lady bugs will arrive on March 31st. Baby ladybugs (ladybug larvae) are long and black with orange markings on its back, a little spiky looking and some say that they resemble alligators, a whole lot smaller of course!

We will also be watching eggs hatch into chicks! I will pick up the eggs from Benner Farm on Tuesday, April 22nd. The children will start turning the eggs each day beginning on Wednesday. The chicks will hatch on or around May 13th. Then the chicks will go back to the farm on Friday, May 17th. It is going to be a very exciting month in our classroom! Please see the April Parent Newsletter for more details.

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.
