Back To School
Summer Recap: It was a fun summer at Stars Montessori Academy. We had three fun packed months with activities, music, and art. On sunny days we were able to enjoy the weather by dipping in the pool, it was lots of fun!
In the month of June we learned about the Solar System. We had the children paint rocket ships with their feet and made them use their hands to make an Earth painting. Our color of the month was blue and we did lots of projects involving that color.
In the month of July we focused on sea animals and a set of colors to celebrate our Independence Day, “Red, white, & blue”. We created flag art and sang songs involving sea animals like “Tiny Turtle”.
In the month of August the children learned about the colors black and oranges. They learned their shapes and sang songs like “The Wheels on the Bus”.
September Recap: WELCOME BACK! This September has been all about coming back to school and getting to know each other with pictures and sing a longs. I am truly humble to see new and old faces from your children in Stars Montessori. This month we focused on welcoming back to school with apple tree pictures, recognition of the children faces and mixing paint with various colors. It was a joy seeing some of the older infants trying to hold the paint brush as well the smaller babies mixing paint while doing the caterpillars and their faces. So excited to see to see parents come and stop by and see your child’s art work and hear about all of our fun we have with our friends in class.
October News: During the month of October our infants learned all about fall and harvest. They enjoyed making candy corn, ghost feet, and pumpkin jack-o-lantern’s. All using their hand and feet as a base of their artwork. Music and movement this month was a lot of fun. We did activities and song that practice clapping, open shut them, naming parts of the body, and finger play’s. The children’s favorite activity this month was mixing paint colors as they finger painted on the table. We are all looking forward to our Halloween Parade on October 31 st from 9:30 to 10:30. All parents are welcome.
November News: We will be learning more about Harvest and Healthy bodies. We will be working on several new sign language signs; Eat, Happy, and Thank you. Large and small motor activities are very important for infant as they develop their fine motor skills and coordination. We will be working on each child’s milestones such as: rolling over, crawling, balancing, walking, jumping and running. We will be closed the following days November 10th for Veteran’s Day, and November 23rd and 24th. I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday.
