Primary 2 Blog Post
Our 2014 – 2015 school year is well under way in Primary 2! A big welcome to our returning families as well as all the new ones. We are several weeks into the year and we are both enjoying your children everyday we are with them. Each little personality is settling into our daily class routines and exploring the materials enthusiastically.
Our focus for the next few weeks will be to continue to guide the children in understanding proper classroom etiquette with each other and the materials. We will concentrate on developing communication skills with one another by emphasizing our grace and courtesy throughout our day.
The month of September has begun our study of Fall. In addition to discussing the seasonal changes, apples will also be a unit of study in our classroom. We will be introducing the globe to the children in order to begin our geography studies, followed by lessons on “Land, Air, and Water” to help facilitate our discussions related to the world we live in.
Our daily morning circle time is where we have introduced the study of history to our students. The concept of time with the days of the week and months of the year help the children realize a connection with “Past, Present, and Future”. One very important history lesson we’ve had is learning about Maria Montessori and we even celebrated her birthday at the end of August. Science lessons for this month will include exploring and experimenting with the five senses and identifying and classifying living versus non-living things.
The children are enjoying our music enrichment class with Ms. Kathy each week, and we are sure you have heard from your children some of the songs she has been teaching them! Our Spanish class with Ms. Carmen will begin soon, and we are looking forward to hearing the children practice their Spanish speaking skills.Thank you for sharing your children with us. We love being a part of their lives, and we are honored to teach them.
