I spend all morning, Monday through Friday at Montessouri Learning Center where I am a teacher's aide and Vienna attends the pre-school toddler class.
We have been there since the beginning of June this year and I thought it was time to tell you all about, as it is a pretty good chunk of our lives.
I had my camera today so I thought I would document a little about what we do there. I don't get to be in the same classroom as Vienna but I think she's fine without me. I'm the one who misses her so much. I get to see her at recess though and I peek in her classroom ever so often:).
Sometimes she sees me peeking!
I LOVE these kids! I love seeing them complete works and looking for a smile and a thumbs up. They are so happy when they make accomplishments and I love that I get to be part of it. I don't really know all the long term effects of these works yet but I'm learning and I am loving what I am seeing.
Ayla is doing the ink stamps work. She absolutely LOVES doing water works.I think she finds it soothing. She is such a cute girl.
Melissa and I pack her 50/50 most of the time.
Here he is doing the sweeping work. As you can see the students must sweep the beans into the green box and then into the dustpan.
They always do this work on the dark rug so that the rice pieces are easy to see.
We try not to bother the students while they work!
If the students have too many wiggles or are being disruptive, we give them some time in the "sassy seat" where they can focus on the work in front of them and less on what's going on around them.
Joseph was so super good at this work! Miss Melissa showed it to him and he repeated the work perfectly! He does really well with boundries!
