The Children’s Museum…. http://freedommontessori.org/2015/06/30/the-childrens-museum/ http://freedommontessori.org/2015/06/30/the-childrens-museum/#comments Tue, 30 Jun 2015 17:27:03 +0000 http://freedommontessori.org/?p=2875 Read more]]> I absolutely love that this museum is based on Vernon Grant’s artwork.

Vernon Grant was an illustrator best known for his creation of the  SNAP! CRACKLE! AND POP! characters for Kellogg’s and his whimsical magazine covers for  “Collier’s”, “Ladies Home Journal”, and many others.

The children had so much fun using their imaginations to create scenarios  and adventures.  They loved cooking and cleaning for the other children.  Violet, Eula, and Colton were adamant about making sure everyone was fed and had enough to drink.  I know they fed me well!! :)

There were dress up clothes and Madisyn turned into Cinderella.  She was sweeping and said “This isn’t any fun!  I want to go to the ball”.    She was waiting for her fairy godmother to send her off to the ball.  We had knights, and princesses, dragons and pirates too.  Gage and Aiden made the biggest trains and had them drive all around.

Thank you to Miss Mobley and to Mrs. Adair for joining us on this adventure.  We appreciate your hard work today!

An outside adventure…. http://freedommontessori.org/2015/06/30/an-outside-adventure/ http://freedommontessori.org/2015/06/30/an-outside-adventure/#comments Tue, 30 Jun 2015 17:14:56 +0000 http://freedommontessori.org/?p=2872 Read more]]> Monday we went to the sensory garden to see how the plants have grown.  We took our snack outside and talked about how you can grow your own veggies outside.  Since we had cucumbers from Lydia’s garden, the children wanted to plant some seeds.  We planted them and will have to wait and see if they will grow.

While outside we noticed various things that fly.  Lots of people must be traveling because we saw many airplanes flying over the school.  Then, we also saw birds and bugs flying too.  This turned into a great lesson for them.  We listened to various sounds and tried to determine what makes those sounds.
