Happy New Year!  EC began our week with new cutting and tracing work, using snowflake shapes!  We introduced a new Geography unit:  My School.  In East, new work on the art shelf included cutting a positive/negative space snowman, and using chalk to draw a snowy scene.  Metal insets were demonstrated as well, using only the inset to trace.  East also added bells to the classroom as a new Sensorial work.  Students use gloves and a mallet to gently strike a beautiful Montessori bell.

West students explored new movement work, using a balance beam.  In Sensorial, the triangle box was added as well as color box 3.  West students also explored the geometric cabinet drawers and the work of pennies in a bank was added to Practical Life.
