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.
