November is the month of gratitude. To celebrate the spirit of November, our students heard the story “What is Thanksgiving Day?” We also sang “Over the River and Through the Wood,” played musical instruments, baked pumpkin muffins, made placemats, contributed to the giving basket, and ate Thanksgiving luncheon with friends and families.
Care for the Environment
Our students continue practicing how to care for the indoor and outdoor environment. They enjoy wiping the table, polishing a wooden table, polishing a mirror, watering, washing and hanging clothes, and composting. These activities are in daily life to maintain the environment.
For the child to reach success, the environment needs to be prepared for him to be capable of doing things in the environment. Our students are given not pretend work, but real work. Regarding Maria Montessori, if a child can develop completely and become the person of his time and place, he will have a sense of belonging. The best way is doing real work, not only developing his potential, but giving back to the community.
