We had a break from the rain so Miss Noah’s class went outside to check on the sunflowers. When we were looking at them we noticed that there were many insects.  We not only have one baby praying mantis, but we counted at least five of them. They are almost an inch long!

We had a lot of fun with our sorority sisters!  They taught us about recycling, lifecycle of a butterfly, the lifecycle of a chick and helped us to plant wildflowers.   We tie-dyed shirts too–we used our pincers  to twist and put rubber bands on so that our friends could put the dye of our choice on the shirts!!!  We can’t wait to see the finished product!

We took a walk to the fountain today, and noticed they are doing a lot of work to the fountain.  We watched team work together cutting/moving concrete with various tools!  They weren’t available for conversation, but it was interesting to watch.

We played in the grassy area closeby,and had fun with our imaginations!

The greatest sign of success for a teacher is to be able to say, “The children are now working as if I did not exist.–Maria Montessori

 

Today was a great day!  The primary classes did a really good job working together in Mrs. Noah’s class. We came together in circle time to talk about the parts of a frog, and watched a short video which had 25 different colored frogs some of which were poisonous!

See next post for some of their lessons.

We we had a great time at the come see me event: leap into literacy!  We participated in songs, activities, and story time.  There was a balloon artist that created the very hungry caterpillar book with balloons!   Princeton was the caterpillar and turned into a beautiful butterfly!   It was a great event for us all!

Our care of the child should be governed, not by the desire to make him learn things, but by the endeavor always to keep burning within him that light which is called intelligence.

We began making marbled paper with shaving cream and food coloring.  Yesterday, a student asked to hang it on the wall by the table and noticed they had similarities.  Everyone has been creating their own works of art.

The more perfect the approximation to truth, the more perfect is art. (Maria Montessori)
