Our Culture Scrapbook.
No doubt scrapbooking develop children’s creativity. Right from their preschool years, scrapbooks can hone their creative skills and thinking skills and let them be more imaginative.
It is like a memory book for them.
Good job my dear children.

SNAIL NATURE STUDY.
“Education is not something a teacher does, but it is a natural process which develops spontaneously in the human being. It is not acquired by listening to words but in virtue of experiences in which the child acts on his environment.” – The Absorbent Mind.

Culture: Tap roots and fibrous root
Kids learn about the roots of a plant that take up water and nutrients from the soil. They also anchor the plant to the ground and keep it steady. The stem carries water and nutrients to different parts of the plant. It also provides support and keeps the plant standing upright.
We look for roots around the school.
Here are some interesting pictures to share. After collecting all the roots they record, gather them bit by bit and compile them as their scrapbook.

On a shining day, the playground was filled with waves of laughter and joy. Children were wandering in the playground.
At a corner where children were not wandering. They were looking at the snail quietly. They started to observe the movements and appearance of the snail. While observing, one child gave the snail way as she saw the snail was getting near her foot.
“Why does this snail look different from other snails?”
“Why is it small and light?”
“The shell look-alike triangle.”
They started to discuss the snail…until it was time to return to their classroom.
It’s such an honour to observe what children are observing.

Beyond celebrating the birthday student, the Birthday Walk is also a learning experience for all students. In keeping with Montessori philosophy, the birthday student uses physical props to depict their journey and growth. The process begins by setting up the environment for a Birthday Walk.

Children walk in the river and have fun in the water outdoors.
“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” – a Chinese proverb.
