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.

We let our students read at four, and by five years old, they start learning ‘mengeja’ (Bahasa Melayu) without memorizing the word beforehand.
They learn to be independent. The ability to write for a child develops slowly and gradually.
By six years old, they can ‘mengeja’ and make simple comprehension.
Good job, everyone.

In a Montessori classroom, there is no timetable for lessons. The children are self-driven by their inner timetables. They have the freedom to choose their work. And sometimes, the children’s choices are also influenced by another child.
