Sunnybrook Montessori School

Montessori preschool & kindergarten in New Hampshire's North Country


This week was a very energetic week at Sunnybrook. The students began the week working on watercolor paintings where they got to show off their inner Winslow Homer. We had a very wet week as well which means a lot of messy play time in the mud. Splashing in puddles and rolling in mud made for a great end to the week.

We also had our harvest festival on Thursday to celebrate the Autumn Equinox and the turning of the seasons. We had different activities for the students to do that were autumn themed like sunflower seed plucking and ornamental corn plucking. We also had an art project for the students to complete where they could use different seeds to glue on paper to make a picture. Miss Eileen gave the students a lesson on Johnny Appleseed and his story of traveling all over the United States to plant apple trees. She read us a book about Johnny Appleseed and then we sang a song. All of the students then got to have a taste of some delicious gala apples.


We also had our first sign language lesson with Rose! She taught us the signs for alligator, bird, bear, and a few others. We learned how to make the letters A, B, C, D, and E in sign language. Then Rose taught us how to count to 5 using sign language numbers. The students had a blast finishing off the lesson with signing along with the song Sally the Camel.
