We continued to explore Montessori materials from all areas of the classroom this week. The children’s interest was sparked this week by the broad stair/pink tower work. As an extension, the broad stairs are often used with the pink tower to allow the child to make many designs. http://www.lapappadolce.net/scala-marrone-e-torre-rosa-estensioni/ They are enjoying working together cooperatively with these materials. It’s wonderful to observe as the children are feeling more comfortable with the Montessori materials.
The children were so excited to discover ice!! With this latest Spring/Winter weather there are various patches of ice around the building and in the woods. The children played “skating” on the large ice patch behind the building, and “explorers” on the ice in the forest.
“Children are human beings to whom respect is due, superior to us by reason of their innocence and of the greater possibilities of their future.” Maria Montessori
