Much applause and appreciate for the hard work of may families over the weekend to beautify our planters. They look amazing. Thank you very much to everyone involved!
We celebrate Halloween a little differently here at Tong Le. We learn about the pumpkin. We learned that we eat the pumpkins pulp, and that the pumpkins grow on a vine. We learned the name of the parts in the pumpkins such as stem, rind, fibrous strand, blossom end etc. The children were hands-on, they scooped the seeds out, felt the slimy and stickiness of the seeds and the juice. We cut the pumpkin into cubes, roasted it and the seeds, they taste great.
On Halloween day, children wore clothing from around the world, Mexico, Canada, Jewish, Puerto Rico, Polish, Indian, Chinese, Irish, African, Italian, English and all the while being Americans! We learned about the continents these countries are located, recognized the flags that represent the countries. Older children drew flags and labeled them, writers wrote about their Halloween experience. The whole class sang a song about children of the world, to accept everyone as they are, and to be kind to everyone.

We are having fun outside and having fun learning inside. Check often for updates!!
The children worked together to make a gift for Mother’s Day. The Primary children helped the IC children write on the cards. The IC children spread glue and placed stickers to personalize their cards. Working together, working at our skill level, helping those who need it. That is how we Montessori!
Happy Mother’s from everyone at Tong Le!!!
Wow, look at all the camps we have added. It’s going to be a Summer of Tong Le.
