An “Eye to a Magnificent Future” was the description of what we felt when our students became the educators in their very own classroom environments this week. The Montessori philosophy nurtures self- confidence, motivation, and the desire to want to learn and question why? Our children develop these life-long skills by listening and observing Montessori lessons that entail the use of beautiful materials that reinforce the concepts in the curriculum. It was a wonderful time for our children to share their knowledge of what they have been learning in their classrooms. We are very proud of them for a job well done!
Eye to the Future is an event that gives the parents time for the children to show them how the children learn in our Montessori classrooms. The child is the teacher, and the parent is the child.
On February 6th, all the parents came in different groups to the LE 1, LE 2, Upper El, and Middle School classrooms to have lessons from the children. Lessons were given in Mat, Language, Geography, Geometry, and History. The parents enjoyed themselves and appreciated the lessons that the children gave.
I gave a math lesson called Pythagoras Board. It’s a way to practice your multiplication tables. At first I felt nervous giving the lesson. Then I felt happy because it was fun to teach the parents. I love Eye to the Future, and I am happy I was able to participate.
