This week was fun! It was book week. Each day we read a couple of the childrens’ favourite books – everyone enjoyed discovering some books they had not read before. On one day, we asked all the Montessorians to dress up as their favourite book characters – which meant we had a classroom full of the most adorable children in Melbourne!

Each child put in so much effort and creativity into their costume, it blew my mind away! We had Woody from Toy Story, Snow White, Peter Pan, Elsa from Frozen, a pirate, a fire fighter, an owl, an unicorn, a dinosaur and our very own Mickey Mouse! Its days like this that make me love my job even more than I already do!

A big thank you to all the parents who put time and effort into this to make this day a memorable one!

Hi everyone! It has been a long time since I’ve posted as we’ve been so busy at the Waverley Montessori Preschool. A couple of weeks back we had a Pancake Day at the school, which was fun and yummy (I am sure all the kids will agree with me on that!).

That week ‘p’ was the phonetic sound of the week so we thought a pancake making day would be a great practical exercise that would help all the Montessorians learn the sound ‘p’. All the children learnt how pancakes were made and had turns in mixing the batter. Afterwards Mrs Santina cooked the pancakes so everyone could have a taste of what they helped create!

Each week, the Montessorians learn a sound of the week and we will keep up these fun exercises to assist in reinforcing the sound.
