Happy Montessori Education Week! This week was filled with school spirit and all about showing appreciation for the wonderful people within the MSBG community from the staff, parents, and to the students.This special week kicked off by having a school wide assembly to show how much MSBG rocks. On Tuesday, students expressed appreciation to their parents by sending home a personalized bookmark sharing why they love MSBG. Many of them shared how much they love being able to learn with Montessori materials, seeing their friends each day, and their appreciation for their teachers. On Wednesday, we celebrated our hard-working staff by wearing tie-dye. On Thursday, we showed our appreciation to the community by wearing local business attire and donating to the Humane Society. The week wrapped up with everyone being able to participate in the infamous Pajama Day! Lastly, we want to send out a HUGE thank you to all the families for the generous donations towards providing a very special lunch to show appreciation for the teachers and staff on Wednesday. We are so very grateful for your kindness and generosity!

Along with the excitement of Montessori Education Week, students were presented with a new history unit in both of the classrooms. In Lower South, students were given a lesson on famous African Americans. As this history unit is out, students will have the opportunity to learn about different African Americans who have changed the world throughout the years. Some of these include, Bessie Coleman, Wilma Rudolph, Stevie Wonder, and many more. Students will explore different works on the shelf from matching nomenclature, learning informative stories and answering comprehension questions, and doing some research on these incredible humans. In Lower North, students were presented with a lesson over the U.S. Presidents. Students will be learning about the 31st to the 46th president, including Franklin D. Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, Barack Obama, etc. While exploring president work on the history shelf, students will have the opportunity to create their own timeline of the presidents along with obtaining knowledge such as, the requirements to be a U.S. President, background information of each president, facts about the White House, and exploring different presidents in more depth through research works.


Have a wonderful weekend!
