Our First Week of School!

Now that summer is over, it's back to school we go! We are very excited for the 2018-2019 school year. We have some fun plans and traditions here at Blooming Minds this school year!  

For this first week, our friends are adjusting back into our school year routine, but it is going pretty smoothly! We have seen some great, peaceful work-times during this week. Peace is a main theme we are setting for these first few months of the year. We re-vamped our Peace Areas and filled them with many peace items, photos of yoga poses and Maria Montessori, pillows, and lamps!  A big part of the Montessori teaching method is encouraging peacefulness in the self as well as the classroom. If a friend is upset or needs some space, we suggest spending some time in the peace area to calm their bodies and refresh their emotions. 

"Peace is what every human being is craving for, and it can be brought about by humanity through the child." 
-Maria Montessori

We are excited for what this school year will hold. And we are even more excited to see our friends learn and grow!
