What Is Montessori?
The Montessori classroom is a “living room” for children, functionally arranged and proportioned for the child and divided into various areas such as practical life, sensorial, cultural, mathematics, language etc, in the prepared environment there is a variety of activity as well as a great deal of movement. No subject is taught in isolation; the work is interdisciplinary and interactive.
North American Montessori Center = Practical Life
After the pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock and survived their first winter with the help of the native Wampanoag, they began to develop colonies and establish their lives in America. It was very hard work living in the colonies and most things had to be handmade. This week, we will be exploring colonial life. The colonists had to knit or sew most of their own clothing and bedding. We will be learning how to thread a needle and try our hand at sewing. Each child will also be completing a quilt square which we will use to create a class quilt! Look for our quilt to be displayed on the wall in our classroom.
