Posted on 05/27/2024

The Edgemont SATp has been working closely with the Edgemont staff this year to help plan monthly, cross curricular, cross grade level, Montessori based activities for students.

On March 15 we had our first “Montessori Moments” activity with Kindergarten and 3rd graders. Kindergarten and 3rd graders read together as “Book Buddies” and wrote up their review for the book!

On April 5, we held our second “Montessori Moments” activity with 1st grade and 4th grade students. Students learned about the Montclair Bike Bus from a very special, guest speaker… Andrew Hawkins (also known as Roberta and Ezekiel’s dad!). After discussing Montclair Bike Bus, bike safety and a thoughtful Q&A session, students worked together to create and illustrate their own bike routes throughout our community.

On May 24, we held our third and final “Montessori Moments” activity with 2nd grade and 5th grade students. The students talked about nature found around Edgemont, and then worked together to create bird feeders that we plan to hang in our backyard at Edgemont!
