We are grateful that we were able to attend The Montessori Event.  This is an annual event where thousands of Montessori advocates from around the world gather virtually and attend live workshops and discussion groups, on-demand content, keynotes and more.  As teachers, we continue our education to improve our teaching skills.  This two-day event was very helpful to energize ourselves to make it through the busy end of the school year.

Our new continent study in Geography is Asia.  Using the Montessori Puzzle maps, students can locate and draw different regions of Asia.  There are also activities on the animals of Asia, traditions in Asia, learning to count in Japanese, and country researches.

Third year students continue the Imaginary Island lessons.  The past few weeks our focus has been on latitude and longitude.  The students placed their island on the planisphere.  This week they are learning how to use an encyclopedia.
