Primary Orientation

In a collaboration between the Montessori Community Committee and our three amazing primary teachers Ms Boulanger, Ms. Hart, and Ms. Lin, we are offering a Primary Orientation on Wednesday, September 5th from 3:10-4 PM.  This is open to any family who has a child in those primary classes (Grades 1, 2, 3) in the Montessori Program.

Unfortunately, we are asking that the orientation be an adult-only event.

This is a wonderful opportunity to meet your child’s teacher, gain insight into what this year may be like for them and ask any questions you might have.

See you there!

Montessori Math Parent Education Night
Tuesday Feb. 13, 2018 : 6:30 – 8:30pm

montessorimath2

Maple Grove PAC invites you to enjoy an interactive workshop with Ms. Lize Hart and several Grade 3-7 Montessori students who will present and demonstrate an overview of Montessori math curriculum and materials.

You will learn how Dr. Montessori introduced the study of Mathematics from a cosmic perspective and how the materials integrate with cultural curriculum. Time will be provided for participants to work with materials selected from the Kindergarten to Intermediate level.

We will discuss how these materials support learning in a multi-sensory way leading students seamlessly to abstracting concepts in Math. Discussion will also include how the progression of materials aligns with the new B.C. draft curriculum.

Childcare (by donation!) : 6:15 – 8:45pm
