Primary Classroom

Children in this classroom learn to work both individually and in groups. Individual work is encouraged in the areas of Practical Life, Sensorial, Language development, Geography, Biology, Botany, Zoology, Art, Music, and Mathematic activities. Our classroom participates in family style dining, which means that teachers encourage the children to serve themselves at the table. When you enter our classroom, look to your left! You will find my lesson plans, weekly lunch menu, snack menu, daily schedule, and a dry erase board displaying information about your child’s day! Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have about this information.
