Learning About The World - Globe

Monday, June 15, 2015

 
We can then explore large and small pieces of land and ocean. We then show the child the coloured globe which is to introduce the idea that the world is made of large land masses that are divided into different areas/continents. After this we can begin showing the child puzzle maps of the world and link it to the coloured globe. 


We always begin with the world and then the child’s own continent. 



If you or your family has been away on holidays please let us know so that we can show the children the places they have or going to travel. Sometimes we will trace the country you are visiting and map out how you will travel from Australia to that particular place. 

Just recently Dale and I received a couple of postcards from Canberra from a child in the afternoon class and when I read it out to the class it was very exciting. So please if you do go away, don’t forget to send the class a postcard.

Freedom of Movement

Monday, June 15, 2015
Freedom of Movement is one of the key factors in the Montessori Approach. This desire and need begins from birth; parents observe their newborn with deep fascination while watching their child figure out leg and arm movements, control of the head and use of the mouth. Movements such as suckling and rooting begin as reflexes for survival but soon purposeful movements are noticed more each day as the child heads closer to infancy. Before we know it, infants are reaching and crawling all over the house. This is when the Prepared Environment becomes more important than ever and attention to safety is pivotal.

A huge thank you to Poppy's dad Perry who sanded back and lacquered some of the Brolga tables during the school holidays. The children remarked on 'our brand new tables' and admired how shiny they were.
