The children are eager to learn and proud of the progress they have made in learning letters and numbers, reading, using scissors, peeling carrots, sewing, doing multiplication, building maps… and so much more!
Thank you to all of the parents who came out for Dad’s Night. The children were so excited to share their classroom and favorite lessons with you all. This year we have had a record number of parent volunteers for our skating days!
“Our classroom has reached the point of normalization, and our peaceful work periods are a sight to behold.”
Thank you all for your help. It is so wonderful to be able to take our whole group of skaters out each week. We will continue to skate on Wednesdays for as long as the weather permits.
February was a busy Month here in the Rainbow Classroom.
In addition to the Montessori curriculum, in March we will be learning about the Solar System and space, life cycles, and color and light. We are continuing to discuss ways in which we can be kind, peaceful, and loving towards each other and our classroom, including how to solve conflicts that arise through peaceful communication with the help of an older friend or teacher. This month, we invite you to visit our classroom to observe your child and the class as a whole.
You can choose a day to spend 45 minutes or so, beginning at 9:00, in one of our grown-up chairs watching the class in motion. It is a good chance to be a fly on the wall and gain insight into your child’s day at school. We will post a sign-up on Bloomz for you to let us know when you would like to come. During March we will also be starting to work on our class art projects to be auctioned at Spring Fling. If you are interested in helping, keep an eye out for volunteer sign-ups and notifications on Bloomz.
After a week of frigid temperatures and indoor recesses, the children were SO excited to be back on our snowy playground. We will continue to go outside every day that the temperature is 10 degrees or higher, so please continue to send warm winter jackets, snow pants, socks, and waterproof gloves or mittens. Additionally, please check to make sure your child has some extra pants, underwear, and shirts in their cubby baskets should their clothes get wet. Just a reminder: school will be closed for Spring Break from March 18th-March 22nd, and will resume on Monday, March 25th.
Thank you for a wonderful month! Ms. Mary Ellen, Ms. Victoria, and Ms. Emily
