During the primary years, the body changes to become longer and leaner, and at the same time, motor skills are refined. Children become more self-controlled and self-sufficient. Language continues to expand and creativity blossoms. The child’s understanding of morality evolves and children begin to assert themselves socially and establish ties with peers.
The Primary students have been very interested in the Winter animal track and snowflake work, especially after our recent snowfall! The 3rd year children have been leading circle, reading to the class, and helping out their younger friends with reading and at the sound table.
In the Primary program, children use our Montessori puzzle maps to begin to build their knowledge of geography. In the second half of the year the 3rd year students began their long chain work.
