An example of Intentional Teaching

When Mrs. Stephanie rescued a garter snake from the playground, the teachers asked the children, “What do you know about snakes?”  They had many questions.

“What do they eat?”

“Where do they live?”

“Do they have teeth?”

“Do they bite?”

“Do they have babies?”

 

With the help of Siri, we could answer their questions and we watched a video about garter snakes…. and they do have teeth.

 

Extended Activities:

At circle time the children compared the length of the garter snake using Montessori measuring rods.

During small group time the children were invited to create a snake with playdough. We measured and compared the lengths.

Finally, and just for fun we used the parachute as a snake and it gobbled us up! We were eaten by a Boa Constrictor.

 

Reminder: Please provide a change of clothing for your child and place them in their basket located just outside the classroom.

Please bring a family photo to display in our family tree. Thank you.
