Choice Activity Board

Please click on an area of the classroom to find a list of choice work for that specific area.

Math

The goals of the math curriculum begin with an understanding of quantity and symbol and then progress to place value and experiences with the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. This leads the child to abstract mathematical ideas and relationships. Many of our live lessons will focus on mathematics, so there will not be as many pre-recorded activities in this area.

Language

The language curriculum supports a child’s spoken, written, and reading development. Our classrooms provide an immersion for the child in language development and offer many opportunities for the development of oral and written communication skills. Muscular movement and fine motor activities are developed to aid with the preparation of writing.  The child works on activities that help them distinguish the sounds which make up our language. Many of our live lessons will focus on language, so there will not be as many pre-recorded activities in this area.

Practical Life

The practical life area is the foundation of the Montessori philosophy. The activities in this area not only assist the child in the development of a long list of practical life skills, but they also help the child lengthen concentration and focus, increase hand-eye coordination, increase socialization skills, gain a sense of personal independence, develop logical thought, be a member of the classroom community, and gain a sense of order. The precise movements of the practical life materials challenge the child to concentrate, work at his/her own pace uninterrupted, and complete a full work-cycle which results in the feelings of satisfaction and self-confidence. Practical life activities are indirectly preparing children for later exercises in reading and writing.

Science/Social Studies

The goals of science are to offer concrete exploration of the physical and life sciences to further classify the child’s understanding and curiosity of the world.  The goals of social studies are to help the child understand his/her place in the community and world. Both of these areas are divided into thematic units of study.

Movement

Development of movement skills in early childhood is so important. It facilitates the process of learning many other life skills. In their early years, children use their bodies to explore the world.
