Holden as Macduff in our class production of Macbeth. I'm very proud of him and all of my students for tackling such difficult subject matter. We had so much fun with this show!

The Sundrops Elementary Program offers a unique and intimate setting that fosters confidence and growth through an authentic Montessori education.

Today our new first years spent some time together playing outside, completing a scavenger hunt, learning about crabs and making a “build your own crab” snack, making art and doing some works off the shelf. Ms. Svenja taught some of her new friends a handcuff knot and everyone had fun trying to escape! 😆

Our incoming first years are enjoying two half-days of getting to know each other and their lead guides. Today we tie-dyed in the rain, made some guacamole for snack, chose some work off the shelves, listened to a read aloud, and played outside in the mud puddles. Back for more tomorrow!

Upper El finished off the school year by performing a play! Students helped to build the set and created props and costumes for our performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. You can view the entire 25 minute performance here: https://youtu.be/NfV1axtSgQI

Our elementary community is making each one of these last days count. This was the last week for lessons, next week will be our last week to finish work. Meanwhile, we are also prepping for the art show and the UE’s Shakespeare play. We are so thankful that our last days together can be spent with meaningful activities and proactive learning versus testing.

When tiny humans do big things: after being shown how to use the tools correctly, these two friends put together a garden box all on their own. Look at those smiles!

Yesterday was pizza day. But the Upper El runs the pizza business, and they are on their big trip! What to do? No worries, the third years stepped up to the plate and helped Ms. Santija deliver pizzas to all the classes. They did a magnificent job, but we forgot to take photos! So here is a picture of them pretending to serve pizzas - service with a smile. 😁

Upper El students are in Yorktown, VA today to learn about the American Revolution and take a ride on this schooner!

When you give a child a question... they first try to look up the answer, when they find the answer, they try to measure how big that actually is, when they measure how big it actually is, they run out of room in the hallway, when they run out of room in the hallway, they go out to the parking lot, when they go out the the parking lot, they measure a line and line up on it, when they line up in the line, they notice the planter boxes, when they notice the planter boxes, they ask if they can peel off the protective foil, when they peel off the protective foil, they realize there is another planter bed to put together,... and that was our morning in LE. Whew!

Quick little clip of our morning work cycle for visitation day yesterday. (If you don’t see your child, they probably chose to work on the porch and I didn’t make it out there for this video.) Visitation Day is when our rising first years visit for the day, and everyone else gets to pretend they are a grade higher, too. Our third years went to Upper El ans our sixths went to the farm, and they all had a great day, too. This really helps to take away the fear of the unknown before the first day this fall.

Visitation Day is going well for LE today. We have 13 visiting children in our classroom!

UE recess today included a gymnastics routine, football, and some art. This weather lends itself to so many activities.

Scrabble the snake woke up from his hibernation and was ready to come say hello to the LE children today. After being passed around the circle, he went for a nap in Ms. Svenja’s shirt sleeve.

It’s a beautiful day for Spanish in the outdoor classroom. Ms. Emily and our UE children are clearly enjoying it, despite the pollen! #MontessoriSpanish #PollenSeason #OutdoorLearningSpace

Some of our LE children have been writing and performing plays on their own. This is a great example of the “Big Work” that happens in elementary; children take on large projects and persevere with focus and enthusiasm. This is possible because the children have been given the freedom to manage themselves - their guides trust them to work on their own and present a completed play in a reasonable amount of time. #BigWork #FreedomWithinLimits #JoyfulWork

Elementary children and their adults had a blast at the @centerforbirdsofprey today! Wonderful weather, an engaging program/flight demonstration, and a picnic lunch followed by outdoor play time. A perfect morning all around.

Welcome back, elementary friends! Upper El had a morning of pajametry (that’s geometry in your pajamas!) and the Lower El had a read-a-thon to celebrate our return to school. We’re easing back into work cycle to finish out this unique school year on a memorable note.

It was sea star dissection day for our Upper El students today. Ms. Svenja shared fun facts about echinodermata and sea stars, while Ms. Shannon led the dissection, and Ms. Santija documented the event. We only wish you could smell these photos! #Echinoderms #WaterVascularSystem #TubeFeet #OurFaceMasksHelped

Elementary students have been studying the often-overlooked contributions of Black Americans in the sciences, education, arts, sports, and leadership. This Upper El student celebrates one of his musical heros, Stevie Wonder, by sharing one of his songs with his classmates. 02/25/2021

If you choose to work quietly in the spot where the sun shines in perfectly, you might find yourself with a tiny work companion. #BrianTheDog #LowerElMascot

From Ms. Svenja (LE lead guide): “Do you remember learning to use a dictionary? These two first years are challenging themselves to look up compound words together, and the joyful exclamations when they find a word are making my day!”

Upper El recently spent the day learning about Revolutionary Charleston. We visited the Provost Dungeon, the Heyward-Washington House, and the Powder Magazine. We love living in such an historic city!

Have you taken time to just breathe today? Take a ten minute breathing break, like this first year. We promise, it will reset your day! #StopGrindCulture #JustBreathe #LittleFrogMeditations

Swipe to see these two elementary friends working next to each other as two-year-olds. Many of our children have been friends since the toddler and primary classrooms, and our guides have known them since they were in diapers! What a special connection to have with your classmates and guides. #WeAreFamily

Ms. Svenja messed up the density columns on the first two tries, but if that isn’t a reflection of real life, then what are we even teaching? 😆 #ScienceIsCool #DensityColumn #WeAreAllScientists
