Class Experience

With the knowledge of science, students will learn to think logically and solve a problem. It is this problem-solving skill, which is learnt in the early years that have enables a person to solve problems and prepare them for a lifetime of discovery.  
As a Montessori teacher, children are given extensive lessons on how to use tools, real tools, safely and appropriately.  Food preparation is a vital part of the Montessori curriculum.  These activities help children to use their skills and accept responsibilities.  Many preliminary activities that isolate a single skill are done and assist children to handle kitchen tools.  Preparing and serving food, such as snacks, are natural ways for children to learn cooperation and feel that they are a valued part of their home/school community.

No formal work.   Just get beans ready for dissecting by soaking beforehand and safety lessons on handling kitchen tools appropriately and safely.
