November Monthly Focus: Art


In November, we will be making a fall collage in an artistic way. The term collage derives from the French "colle" meaning "glue". This term was coined by both Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso in the beginning of the 20th century when collage became a distinctive part of modern art. We will be collecting nature items from outside and also using magazine pictures and stamping leaf shapes. This activity involves all of our five senses : to identify colors, textures, forms, and subjects in the environment to display on our collage.

Please send in any child appropriate magazines such as Parents, Travel, Better Home and Garden, Cooking and National Geographic Kids.

The Difference Between Montessori Schools and Traditional Schools

The goal of both Montessori and traditional schools is the same: to provide learning experiences for the child.  The biggest differences are in the kinds of learning experiences each school provides and the methods they use to accomplish this goal.

Montessori educators believe both differences are important because they help shape what a child learns, his work habits and his future attitudes toward himself and the world around him.

The Montessori School at StarCreek Student Rainforest Project

Montessori-in-the-home-Activities for Parents: Activities that can be structured for the child in the home


The intelligence of your child depends on the order, richness, variety, appropriateness of his environmental experiences and of the perceptions possible for him at a given moment.

To open the door to improved performance - so the child will utilize his CAPACITIES - we must find ways of changing a child’s convictions from “I can’t” to “I can”… herein lies one of Montessori’s major contributions.

Try out some of these activites when you're at home with your child:

  • Greetings and introductions
  • Pouring beans, rice and water
  • Preparing soil for planting
  • Climbing up and down a stepladder              
  • Washing and cutting apples
  • Setting the table
  • Thinking of words that rhyme
  • Putting stories on a tape recorder
  • Matching pictures
