I’m Graydon and I’m going to be your host for ‘thru the seasons’.
When the school year begins in the fall, we are gradually weaned into the program and very shortly we begin ‘show and share’. Ms. Sherin is very ardent about public speaking. She feels it boosts our confidence.
Most of us need these skills at some point in our lives so we may as well start early! Once a week, we practice our presentation skills with our peers through ‘show and share’.
During parent events we get to shine as public speakers. What I like best is each of us plays a different role and recites different lines. This creates a non competitive and team spirited atmosphere.
Just as we get into routine at school, Halloween comes around. Now remember, Montessori is all about staying connected to reality, so our costumes depict real life things. We get to come in costume and talk to our peers about it.
