From the gardening pot to the lesson table

The peas that Ari’s mom Shefali donated to school are growing strong. Our students discovered four big fat peas this morning and so we took them to the class and learn about it.

We learn how the peas grow from seeds to pods, we looked for the flowers and seeds, we counted the seeds…though we really want to taste the peas but we don’t have enough for everyone, so we decided to germinate more peas and hopefully it grows more!!

This is what we have on the “observation table”, many children stopped by to observe it, they touched, they counted, they drew and they wrote about it. This is how we Montessori!

Thank you Shefali and Ari for the peas!

Happy Mother’s Day

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!!!
