My students need collapsible wagon to bring to the park, supply caddies for chalk, binoculars, outdoor games, outdoor sports balls and pump, and more!
My school is one of the truly diverse public schools in New Orleans, a real reflection of the city and its people. Our school offers the Montessori program and, therefore we free the child's potential and aim for lasting peace and a love for learning.
My classroom is unique; it is an all kindergarten version of an early childhood Montessori classroom.
However, I am AMS Early Childhood certified and incorporate and use as much of Montessori practices and ideology as possible. We have practical life, sensorial, language/reading, math, geography, and cultural studies areas in the classroom. During work time, the students are free to choose and receive lessons in all areas.
Ms. J is my fabulous TA, and we are a community above all, respecting and taking care of one another. Their curiosities are bursting at the seams and luckily, we are encouraged as teachers to invest in our students' interests.
Spending time outside helps children develop self-awareness, confidence and self-esteem. Playing outdoor games develops collaborative-working and communication skills. Provides positive health benefits – both physically and mentally – and they assist in gross and fine-motor development. And of course, spending time learning outside can develop a lifelong love of the outdoors.
"We cannot create observers by saying 'observe', but by giving them the power and the means for this observation and these means are procured through education of the senses,"
-Dr. Maria Montessori
As the students learn inside, they can extend their knowledge to the real world, outside the walls of the classroom. These supplies will allow these 25 Kindergarten students to spend more time outside, have more trips to the nearby park with paints and books, activities for the outdoors, and outdoor balls for group play. Help us build a love for outdoor activity, physical play, and the beauty of nature for these young children.
