We received Zerlynde's very first report from her Montessori last week. It reads as follows:
Zerlynde is a sweet girl. She enjoys working with Practical Life pouring activities. She is also active, she enjoys outdoor play and music and movement. She gets along well with her peers. Her friends are Isabel, Kelly, Nicole, Juvita and Wei Song.
The children have been practicing on the Montessori Practical Life materials like dressing frame, rolling and unrolling mat, pulling out and tucking in chairs, care of books and transferring pasta with spoon. As for Sensorial exercise, they are practicing with the presentation tray, knobbed cylinders, broad stairs and pink tower to train their five senses for future work.
For language and number work, we are introducing the letters G to L and proceeding with numbers 1 to 7. We are using the sandpaper numbers and letters for tracing with fingers and using crayons and colour pencils on the workbooks.
Our theme for April is still "Animals". We will be talking about the habitat, food, characteristic and movements of the animals. The children will be making some animals through pasting and painting activities, besides the colouring activities.
