Enchanted Childhood Preschool ~ Our First Week!

Everyone was excited to be back to school!

It was good to see "old friends" and make "new friends"!

Before classroom time starts we always have free play.

Beginning Circle Time

 Classroom Work


ending circle

Notice the shelves are fairly empty.
In Montessori classrooms you start with just a few items out .
The first week is for learning or relearning those important classroom routines and attitudes.

and after snack clean up practice

 Our first week, we looked at the Monet prints in the classroom,
 and the children made their own Impressionist-style paintings.  
They love saying "Impressionist"!

After snack and Creative Time, if the weather is dreary, we head to the open space of the Living Room, for Wild and Crazy time.  After 15-20 minutes of running, jumping, being "wild and crazy" we settle back down with some yoga!

It was a GOOD first week!!

Each week I join several linky parties! What a fun way to share and learn!
