MMA Montessori Moments
March 11th, 2019
Thank you to all our 7th and 8th grade students who produced such fantastic projects for the History Fair. Each student's project brought a different concept about our history. Congratulations to Leyla (1st place), Valaya (2nd place), Thor (3rd place), and Rustin and Marlee (4th place tie)!
MMA's Literacy Week
During literacy week students can bring books for the book swap. This is a great opportunity to share books with one another. Secondly, each student should bring in a picture of the cover of their favorite book to hang on the art strip outside of their classroom. If printing a picture is not an option, your student can draw the cover. We would like our older students, specifically Upper El and Jr. High, to include a short summary of their book and what they liked about it. We want students to be able to walk around the school and see books that they might be excited to read!
Throughout the week we encourage students to be reading at home and at school. Our literacy committee created a beautiful tree in the front of the school. Each time a student reads a book, they get to add a leaf to the tree. Please encourage your children to spend time at home reading good books! We want our tree to sprout a lot of leaves!
Lastly, we will have a read-a-thon on Friday from 10:00-11:00am. Students are encouraged to bring books from home to enjoy. Please no pillows, blankets, or stuffed animals.
Don't forget, there is no school for students on Monday, March 18th as our professional development continues.
