Toddler II Blog Post
We hope everyone had a nice fall break. September was a very fruitful
month for Toddler II. We colored our pinwheels for peace and also
joined the other classes on the playground to celebrate Peace Day on
September 19. We did lots of work related to apples. Also we learned the
difference between Huge and Small, Heavy and Light. For this lesson we
used common materials such as a huge heavy watermelon and a small
light apple. The kids really loved it. We tested carrots, and we
experimented with the top of the carrot to see how carrot plants grow from
it. Now the plant is growing in our classroom in a pot. We also tested
apples, and the children cut the apple pieces to make apple sauce. Kids are
so interested to explore food both raw and cooked. They also peeled hard
boiled eggs for Grandparents Day. We had fun on Grandparents Day.
I would like to thank my guests for coming and parents for bringing
the food for Grandparents Day.
October has lots of events. On 10/21/2014 we have Children’s Sharing
Night. It is a very good opportunity to watch your child and how they
work in the Montessori environment.
On 10/24/2014 we have parent-teacher conference, and on 10/30/2014 MSH
We already started painting Happy Jack o’lantern for part of our
October work plan. This month we are going to study about pumpkin,
gourd and nocturnal animals in very simple way. We are going to cook
sum yum yum pumpkin muffins! End of this month we are going to
celebrate Diwali ( Festival of Light in India ), and we also going to
make some Indian sweets. I love to work with my children and thanks go
to parents for choosing us to be part of their lives.
Have a safe October and Happy Halloween.
