Thank you to all who attended our Cookie Exchange last week! It was a blast! This is such a beautiful time of year in Arizona. We are so fortunate to be able to work, play and eat outdoors through December.
We wish Aidan L. a very happy birthday! We love you and your creativity!
Despite the holiday craze that typically coincides with this time of year, the children have been continuing to exhibit deep levels of concentration, love of learning and independence.
The discoveries and fascination with the world continues in the Gray Fox classroom! Big work is happening fostered by intrinsic motivation, then they share this wonder with each other.
"The child is both a hope and a promise for mankind." -Dr. Maria Montessori
We have been discussing various holidays celebrated around the world in December including Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaa, Ramadan, Fiesta of our Lady of Guadalupe, Boxing day and Omisoka. Most of all, we have been discussing World Peace and the importance of being a peaceful person, caring for our earth, cherishing family, friends, and giving to those less fortunate. The way the children describe their family traditions and understanding of peace is poetic.
May this season fill your home with joy, heart with love, and your life with laughter.
Warm wishes for a peaceful holiday with your loved ones,
Miss Lauren and Ms. Yadira
