“Within the child lies the fate of the future.”
- Maria Montessori
Upper Elementary students (ages 9-11) at Thevenet Montessori School are using the “Peace Flower” pictured below, to learn about the connectedness of all life and each person’s and community’s influential call to care for humanity and wildlife.
In December the children sang their hearts out in preparation for the Winter Concert. We couldn’t be more proud of them and their performance! Thank you for attending and for your continued support in making Thevenet West projects and events so successful.
We learned about Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa. We listened to some of the Nutcracker composed by Tchaikovsky and read the Nutcracker to learn the story.
The classroom was filled with the holiday spirit throughout December as children learned the traditions of Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa. Students delightfully decorated gingerbread houses and made beautiful oversized snowflakes. The room was filled with handmade crafts.
Your children continue to enjoy yoga with Mrs. T.
Please remember to dress your child in layers. Hats, mittens, and scarves would be great to have in their backpacks when the weather permits us to play outside.
The first quarter of the 2016-2017 school year at Thevenet Montessori School began as an opportunity to whet the appetites of the young scholars of the Upper Elementary and ended with a burst of energy to propel into the second quarter. Topics studied during the first months of the school year help students strengthen the skills they will further develop and areas they will cover during the subsequent quarters. Per the Montessori philosophy, each student works at his or her own pace and explores his or her own academic interests.
