3-6 Level Distance Learning & Recommendations:

 

Dear families,

As a level we hope you are staying healthy and well.  

Here are suggestions and ideas for your children while school is closed.  We want your children to stay engaged and learning. 

Montessori Guidelines for the 4-6 level

  • 20 minutes of reading a day
  • We highly encourage you to get your child outside as much as possible.
  • Enjoy as much at-home practical life skills as possible 

To begin our distance learning curriculum, we will provide a variety of observational and hands-on learning ideas, worksheet packets and on-line resources.   These resources will be updated weekly. If the school closures continue for the duration of the school year, we will incorporate google classroom and zoom into our curriculum.  Please check your email and the TMES website for updates and resources.

We hope you find these ideas and resources helpful in keeping your child healthy, happy and engaged during the school closure.  You may also email your child’s teacher with questions or concerns.  We can't wait to see our students again soon!

 

Sincerely,
