|Week in Review
Last week we introduced Bb and #4. We practiced reading and spelling: at, am, bat, sat, mat, Sam. We introduced the Montessori Language Arts activities: Mental Insets, Picture to Picture Matching, and Size Sorting. In Math we introduced number pegs and in Practical Life we introduced the dressing frames. On Friday, students made a bear painting with a fork, a bear craft out of the letter B, learned to draw a butterfly and outside they played Bunny, Bunny, Hop (version of Duck, Duck, Goose).
