Montessori Happenings

One of the first weeks of school, we talked about the importance of the virtue of cooperation. We use cooperation in nearly every aspect of our classroom, from working on lessons together to keeping our classroom organized and clean. We use cooperation when we listen to each others ideas and come up with the best solution. Without cooperation, our classroom environment wouldn't be the peaceful place we know! 

To demonstrate cooperation, the children attempted to get two balloons into a tub using two yardsticks. When just one person tries this, it's a very difficult task! Balloons end up going everywhere! But when two people use cooperation, it's much easier to get the balloons into the tub! Here are some photos from our fun cooperation activity:
