#globalmontessori DO YOU HAVE GOOD THINGS TO SAY ABOUT GMS? January was a very busy time for inquiries into our school programs. Many families take time at the beginning of the calendar year to plan for September. It was lovely to speak to people on the phone and have them say ‘…I heard great things about your school…’ We appreciate our families and how you share your child’s school experience with others. These ‘seeds’ help our Montessori school grow by connecting with others that share the same values as those in our school community. Do you have something you want to share about your child’s experience at Global Montessori School? We want to hear it! Please drop by the office, take a moment with the classroom teacher, or email Ms. Shelley at: shelleyc@globalmontessorischool.com http://ow.ly/BRO83092Rjs

#globalmontessori Tundra Class: Buddy Reading
This past week the Tundra students began welcoming the Kindergarten children to our class for a second buddy reading session in the week. It is a wonderful opportunity to nurture new friendships with upcoming Lower Elementary students, particularly for the first year children who are keen to practice their mentoring skills.

#globalmontessori Tropical Forest Class: Practicing Kindness
We have been discussing the virtue of kindness in class. This includes how to show kindness and why it is important. We’ve seen the children making extra efforts to show kindness in class. This includes working cooperatively with peers, encouraging others, taking initiative to offer help to a friend in need.

One of the key elements of an authentic Montessori classroom is it provides a community of multi-aged learners. There are a number of benefits to this structure, particularly for a child in the third year of their Montessori cycle:
⎫ Peer Learning: As experienced in our everyday life, we learn from co-workers, family and neighbours of varying ages. Our classrooms represent ‘reality’ and a dynamic learning environment that respects everyone’s contributions.
⎫ Teaching Demonstrates Mastery: The opportunity to teach what they know to younger children allows older children to solidify their learning. In turn, this supports a strong sense of confidence and capability. As said by Yogi Bagan, “To learn, read. To know, write. To master, teach.”
⎫ Community Legacy: Through personal sharing and role modeling, the older children are able to teach the younger children what they have learned about social courtesies, positive communication, and intriguing ideas about the world around them. Passing the torch from one leadership group to another creates a rich learning community.

#globalmontessori Desert Class: Lunar New Year
We have been learning about Lunar New Year. The festivities for the Year of the Rooster began on January 28. The class learned it is a time for feasting, family reunions and fun. Lunar New Year is also known as the Spring Festival, marking the arrival of spring and the end of winter. To celebrate this special event, children made lanterns to represent part of the Chinese custom.
