Dear Parents,

During the last two weeks the children have been enjoying the wonderful warm weather. We have been spending a lot of time outdoors and having fun in the sun. The children had a good time with our parachute outdoor activities and listening to music. The children practice their gross motor skills by running, catching, and popping bubbles.

We introduced the children to South America. We located South America on our Montessori globe. The children had the opportunity to observe photos of South American schools, markets, and gas stations. The children commented on how many books we have in our school, another child commented that their mom’s market was bigger, and another child commented that their mom never gets gas, which made us laugh.       

We celebrated a birthday in our class by making cupcakes and reading a favorite story. We marched through the halls of the school and clapped for our birthday girl, who wore a crown and held her banner! It’s such a wonderful classroom tradition! If your child has a summer birthday, we will celebrate their birthday in June.

Warm Regards,

Ms. Victoria, Ms. Francine, and Ms. Nancy
