First Day of School!!!

The school year starts today, and I’m up by 5:00am to make my lesson plan.  I have 22 children this week, including three 2.5-year olds (two more start next week, thank goodness!).  One of my favorite things about Montessori is that the children stay with their teacher for the three-year cycle, so this year I will continue working with 11 of the children I guided last year, plus four new ones and nine that have come to me from other classrooms.  I hope to have time this evening to post about how the first day went… I’m sure there will be lots of “Twinkle, Twinkle” and “Wheels on the Bus” action today.  Sometimes, it’s the only thing that will make the new ones stop crying… *sigh*

  1. It’s wonderful that the kids stay with you for three years. I’m sure that this builds mutual trust, and how rewarding for you to see the kids develop. They grow and change so quickly when they’re that young. Looking forward to reading more about what the life of a Montessori guide is like!
