Early Childhood is the perfect time to introduce children to their place in our world-and one way we do this in Montessori is through our rich geography curriculum. This week, we continued with Our School, Our City, and Our State. Children enjoyed learning about the state symbols, the map of Ohio, labeling pictures of our school, and learning about Bowling Green. In Practical Life, our second food preparation was introduced-pulling string cheese. This work strengthens fine motor skills as well as enhances grace and courtesy as the child prepares the food to eat in the classroom. Not to mention, it is delicious and nutritious!
