In this class, there is a mix of ages (4-, 5-, and 6-year-olds), following the classic Montessori philosophy of mixing students of different ages together. This process helps older children develop greater responsibility, become role models, and gain a sense of accomplishment. The younger students benefit from this experience by imitating the older children and, therefore, have a greater incentive to learn and acquire knowledge. However, students learn and excel at their own speed without feeling left behind, overwhelmed or bored with old information.
This class is our finishing class that prepares them for first grade. Students learn and practice their writing skills. They are introduced to more complex mathematical concepts such as addition, multiplication, division and subtraction. In terms of language development students start putting three letter words together and reading sentences. Students continue to learn continents, flags, the names of US States, World Atlas, Botany, Computers and advanced Spanish.
