During the month of September the teachers are establishing classroom routines and procedures. This week the children continued to learn the proper way to work with the Montessori materials. The teachers continue to do presentations as they introduce new materials. There is repetition and reminders so that all of the children understand the classroom expectations for their success in the classroom. Also during this time the teachers continue to observe, documenting their observations to learn where each child is academically.
