In practical life this month students were introduced to twisting, folding, sorting/ matching and flower arranging. Practical Life activities are all naturally interesting to our students because they reflect real life task.

Grace and Courtesy

With the weather changing, this month in grace and courtesy we were introduced to independently putting on our coat and hanging up a coat. Other things like greeting someone who walks into the room and how to respectfully interrupt a conversation were also introduced. The students had a great time role playing and practicing with each other.
