Where We Are in Time and Place

      A special thank you to Ms. Jamie and MYP Grade 9 students for bringing to life another great Montessori story, The Timeline of Life. This story fits very well with our current unit of inquiry, Where We are in Time and Place, because it’s showing the progression of life through time. It […]

Fall & Pumpkins

Last week we were reading a book called “The old lady who swallowed leaves” accompanied by a wonderful sensorial bin full of leaves, pumpkins, seeds and other seasonal nuts to explore through our touch and visual senses. Toddlers loved to put their hands into the box and play while learning vocabulary at the same time. […]
