One of my favorite parts about an Elementary Montessori classroom is that you see children constantly, collaboratively, learning with and from one another on a daily basis. There are many benefits to this work. Working with a friend teaches children patience, respect for another’s strengths and challenges, and the give and take of compromising while collaborating.
It was another productive week in Lower Elementary. The third year students learned about pronouns in grammar and the material they use to practice this skill is called a grammar box. The second graders learned about prepositions and they also use a grammar box as follow up to this work. The first year group learned about nouns. They enjoyed going on a scavenger hunt in the classroom and labeling all the nouns they could find!
