My Students

"What will happen if....?" This is a frequently asked question in my class of 3 to 6 year old students. I teach at a public Montessori school in Charleston, South Carolina. There are 23 eager and inquisitive minds in my classroom.

Young children are the foundation of our community.

It is important for children to see that learning does not only happen inside a classroom with a teacher guided lesson. Learning takes place outside as well with self-guided free exploration of material. The items that we are requesting will be some of the building blocks to an outdoor learning environment.

My Project

Young children learn through their direct involvement with their environment. My students range in age from 3 to 6 years old. Everything in our Montessori environment is meant to be manipulated by the students. There are specific lessons that go with each material and a formal presentation for each lesson as well.

My students need hands on science materials that foster free exploration and creation.

The water table lends itself to a variety of science activities such as sink and float and measuring liquids. The stand up magnetic board will allow for trial and error when creating systems of pathways for exploring force and motion. At our outdoor easel the children will be able to experiment with a variety of art mediums.
