What is a typical day in the Primary classroom?
The children come in and are greeted by the teacher. Children wash their hands. They begin their three-hour work cycle that focuses on the five main areas of the classroom: Practical Life, Sensorial, Math, Language, and Science/Geography. During that three-hour work cycle, the child will pick a work that has already been presented to them by their teacher and will work at their own pace. The child could also get a new lesson from the teacher during this time. During the work cycle, the child will have morning snack and go outside for a half-hour. After the work cycle, the children complete circle time and then have lunch. Nap is a two-hour period followed by afternoon snack and then our Reggio inspired program. After Reggio, the children go outside and then all Montessori materials are put away and 5:00 toys come out.
