Montessori Happenings


The Cedar Montessori School of Flagstaff sent six students along with Mrs. Larson to an elderly home to entertain the residents. We arrived at a little house. As the owner invited us in, we noticed the environment was welcoming and warm. There were about eight residents that the owner introduced us to.  Along with us, we had brought a skit book and a book of quotes from Kids Say the Darndest Things! Both of the books were at least forty years old, so the jokes were a little outdated. We started out with stand-up comedy. We told some jokes. Next , we decided to perform some skits from the book. We are familiar with doing skits in front of people, as we take Drama, so stage fright wasn’t an issue.  One of the students read some quotes from the book after another student performed a song on her trumpet.  We decided  to do some classic skits the Three Stooges had done. The first one was a classic hit-on-the-head, slap-in-the-face one. The crowd seemed to enjoy this skit, especially when I  did  a ‘Curly’ and ran away going “Woop, woop, woop, woop!”. 

As we were leaving, the owner said that it was great for the residents to have young people visit.   I hope that soon we will return and provide more ‘Stooges’ comedy for them, as the students very much enjoyed doing it.

Montessori Philosophy

Montessori PhilosophyThe Montessori Philosophy encourages children to develop their observation skills through activities that use the five senses, kinetic movement, spatial refinement, small and gross motor skill coordination, and concrete knowledge that leads to later abstraction.
