Dear Compass Montessori Families,
We had a short yet great month at our school! Our mother nature decided to give us a little break with all the snow. But we took advantage of these days to play outside, make snowman and spend time with our families. This past month went by pretty fast; however, our students surely enjoyed celebrating our friendship’s month.
February was a great month to reinforce our social skills; the students have been learning every day about our personal space, taking care of each other and communicating our wants and needs using their words. During this month, we learned about the rainforest; they enjoyed learning about which animals live in each layer of the rainforest. We learned about the famous presidents of the U.S.A; they were so surprised to learn that some of the presidents are displayed on our money! We also had a great time learning about elephants; the children enjoyed making an elephant snack. They learned about the different types of elephants and about their body features and body parts. And for our last week we learned about Africa; they learned about the culture, food and about the animals. They had a great time singing “Old Mikamba had a farm”; on which the students were challenged to make sounds of animals from Africa.
March is here and so is spring, we are so excited for more sunny days! This month the students will be learning about Europe, the shamrock, rivers, insects and St. Patrick’s day. We are so proud of each of our students and we can’t wait to share with you about their progress during our parent-teacher conference. We will have our conferences on March 21st-22nd, please schedule your time.
