The Penguin Class
December 19, 2015
What’s happening in our
class?
Wow! It’s hard to believe we are
wrapping up 2015. What a great first
half of the school year it has been!
December has been a busy month for
the Penguin Class.
We went on our first field trip of the
year to Poplar Grove Plantation where
we rode on a wagon, hiked nature trails,
and enjoyed real life farm animals!
Please view our class website for a
slideshow of photos and short video
clip from that fun day! Last week,
we had a special guest from the
library, Krista Dean, come and read
stories to each class. She read
books by Ellen Stoll Walsh. It was
great!
Finally, on the last day, we read the
Polar Express and made bell
necklaces. We also had our first
ever book exchange and the
children loved it! To view photos,
please visit the class website :)
Speaking of class website, please
make it a habit to check the site
weekly for picture updates, videos,
newsletters, etc. This is something
new we are trying out, so let me
know what you think! You can access
the class site through the Island
Montessori School website by

The children have enjoyed crafting
and making beautiful ornaments to
bring home for the holidays. Thank
you to the parents who volunteered
their time to come and help make
this possible for our class! And
thank you to each family for your
active participation in sending in
materials for our monthly activities.
Have a restful and joy-filled break!
We look forward to what 2016 has
in store for our school.
In peace,
Meghan Sellers
Busy at Work!
This week, we gave
Bruce Quillis his first
bath at school and
the children helped
me clean his cage!
In Practical Life, children have
been
creating
ornaments,
decorating Christmas trees, brass
polishing, and learning how to use a
medicine dropper. Our Kindergarten
students have even been practicing
gift wrapping, so they are ready to
help out at home!
In Sensorial, the children continue
building
extensions
with
the
materials. In light of the holidays,
they have enjoyed building a
Christmas tree with the Red Rods
and decorating it with the Knobless
Cylinders, as ornaments!
