This Week at Sunstone

President’s Day holiday and the wacky winter weather shortened our week quite a bit so we don’t have a plethora of photos to show you this week, but we do have a few. We hope you enjoy.

Toddlers in itty bitty snowsuits are pretty cute.

In the Trillium Room Lucius and Alaska finished their big, beautiful research on Vermont including a salt dough map and an informative booklet on the Green Mountain State.

Amit, from the Butterfly Room, took it to the Commons. Counting the 1,000 chain takes a lot of room!

When it rains it pours. Map work was quite popular in the Butterfly Room this week.

You may have heard a Montessorian say, “Work begets work.” Well, it’s true and, when ideas catch like wildfire through a classroom, it’s a beautiful phenomenon to watch. All it takes is one child working intently with focus, deep concentration, and pure engagement, and another child to notice and follow suit. Voila! the fire is lit and spreads fast and furious.

In the Maple Room Kaia combines the Pink Tower and the Brown Stair to explore dimensional relationships,

and Elizabeth lays out the Large Number Cards in preparation for mathematical operations with the Golden Bead Material.

In the Camassia Room Andrew and Girard use a Grammar Box to identify and analyze the functions of words within a complex sentence; verb, noun, adverb, adjective, conjunction, preposition, etc.

That’s it for this week. Happy Sunstone Friday everyone and have a wonderful weekend!
