Happy Valentines to all, enjoy these pictures from some of our classroom celebrations.
On our very long bike ride today (11 miles :-)), we passed by MCS. Hanna said "I really, REALLY miss this school.."

It's been a year since Hanna left Montessorri Country School, but she will always think fondly of this great school and the MCS family.
We miss you all at MCS!! You all are amazing! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜💖

For 47 years, Montessori Country School, a nonprofit organization, provides children (ages 16 months - 6 yrs) a Montessori education in Northern Virginia.

It was a very colorful celebration of MCS International Day! We celebrated the day by performing songs and dances from around the world. This showcases the unique differences of our cultural backgrounds and experiences, bringing us closer together as a community.

Can you guess the heritage represented by some of our MCS kids?

“The land is where our roots are. The children must be taught to feel and live in harmony with the Earth.” - Maria Montessori

HAPPY EARTH DAY!
April 22, 2021, is Earth Day, a day to not only celebrate our love of the natural world but to acknowledge our duty to take care and protect it. MCS joined the community in celebrating this special day by showing our love and respect for Mother Earth.

Spring has sprung!
And look at the creative work of our MCS kids inspired by the change of the season.

"Art is a way for our children to communicate their feelings. It is through art that children develop their fine motor skills. In the Montessori environment, we provide open ended art activities that children explore and use their creativity. When it comes to art, it is the process not the product that is important to the child."

Day 5 is Language Day where we celebrate our love for reading. Our MCS kids came in their cozy pajamas and their favorite books. What a great day to culminate the Spirit Week! The Spirit Week may have ended but we hope that we continue to celebrate the Montessori qualities.

Thanks everyone for participating in our Spirit Week.

Day 4 of our Spirit Week is Cultural Sciences. What a joy to see our MCS kids being proud of their heritage. It was fun to learn more about who we are and where we are from. No matter what our cultural background is, MCS is one community that respects differences and celebrates diversity.

Day 3 of our Spirit Week is Celebrating Numbers. Our MCS kids surely had fun wearing their thinking hats! Some of us even created our very own crazy hats. 😀

On to the next adventure! 😊

Day 2 of our MCS Spirit Week is Sensorial Day. We had a pink and brown theme representing the two most recognized Montessori sensorial materials, Pink Tower and Brown Stairs. Our MCS kids came dressed in pink or brown in honor of these materials. Working with these materials are always fun, whether it is their first time or have already done it for several times.

Another sensorial activity for the day is exploring colors! So much excitement in seeing the color transformations!

We can’t wait for Day 3! ❤️

This week at MCS, we are celebrating Montessori Education Week with a spirit week. We are joining the Montessori community throughout the world celebrating the qualities of Montessori.
Day 1, we celebrated practical life. We were all chefs, making our own snowmen snacks.
Our MCS kids surely had fun creating ... and eating their snow men! 😊 Great job, our young chefs!

It’s Groundhog Day!

FUN FACTS 😀
Groundhogs are famous for predicting Spring. According to legend, if the groundhog comes out of his burrow on February 2nd and does not see his shadow then, Spring will come early. If the groundhog sees a shadow, then it goes back into its burrow and Winter will last 6 more weeks. 😊

What’s your prediction? Hard to tell but for sure, our MCS kids will love creating (and eating 😊) these cookies. 😊

Jack-o-lanterns after Halloween? Why not! See the creative work of our toddlers who had so much fun turning their pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns. They also observed a pumpkin being carved and helped to clean out the gooey insides with their hands. What fun!

Look at the creativity of the Primary Class. Inspired by the season, they have been using pine cones, corn and leaves for their art work. What more, they have been enjoying the beautiful Fall weather by creating their art outside the classroom.

It's Fall!
The leaves are changing colors. Look at the creative art done by our Toddler Class inspired by the beautiful colors of this season! Paintings were done using materials such as apples, flowers, leaves, and cotton balls. The toddlers also had fun making leaf tracing with crayons.
