Each activity on the shelf has a specific purpose to strengthen a particular language skill that each child needs to acquire in order to begin reading more fluently.
Main Classroom: Students ages 3-4 gather here every morning to begin the school day with circle time and a presentation with a Montessori material. The main classroom is bright with plenty of natural light and space for children to work independently. The material in this classroom focuses on mathematics, sensorial, geography, science and world cultures. Again each activity that is available has a specific purpose to strengthen the particular skill that it focuses on.
