Primary II February Blog
In addition to our work in Practical Life, Sensorial, Math, and Language, February has proven to be a month for celebration, sharing, and kindness in our classroom. Among celebrating the birthdays of several friends, we had a merry time preparing for our Valentine exchange. Luckily, the three snow days did not interrupt our chance to take turns sharing and giving with each other.
We have set up a “Love and Kindness” jar on our peace shelf in which we are able to actually see the love grow in our classroom. In addition to being a visual representation, the jar encourages spontaneous acts of love and kindness. We are thrilled to see how much the children love and care for one another. Ask your children to explain to you how it works!
The remainder of this month we will continue our study of the continent of Asia. Some of the children have created beautiful maps of Asia and are extremely proud of their work. Please find a moment to admire their effort as it will only take a moment to realize the amount of focus and determination put into each one.
We are enjoying the books of Leo Lionni and discussing presidents of the United States as well.
*Due to the snow days we have rescheduled our Kindergarten Move Up Day to the Elementary classroom to take place on Monday, the 24th of February.
**Even if you cannot make it to the March book club featuring the book, Simplicity Parenting, please consider reading this phenomenal book. The ideas in this book truly supplement what we try to do each day in the Montessori classroom and we believe it to be such a valuable resource.
