A DAY IN THE LIFE OF LIVING MONTESSORI SUMMER CAMPERS 2021
Every day is a new adventure during summer camp here at Living Montessori. From cooking projects to crafting and more, our campers explore a wide variety of ideas and concepts. Each week’s camp curriculum follows a theme to keep children engaged and excited. Every Friday, we celebrate the fun we have had through Friday Fun activities.
This is just the beginning of the exciting activities our campers can look forward to experiencing. They also experience weekly culinary lessons and enrichment classes. In addition, our elementary students have specialty lessons in Spanish, fine arts, and engineering.
Here is a look into a day at Living Montessori summer camps and some of the fun, educational activities our students are enjoying this summer.
CAPTIVATING WEEKLY THEMES
Each week, our Living Montessori campers explore a different theme with their class and teachers. These themes seamlessly integrate the Montessori Method while building an enriching environment for the children. This year’s themes include Interesting Insects and Fun on the Farm. They enable children to explore activities and broaden their field of knowledge, through fun and play. Themes expand through craft activities, where children can express their creativity and individualism, while deepening their knowledge of new subjects.
Children of all ages learn about cooking and healthy food choices, through mixing up a number of nutritious and tasty recipes. This summer’s campers bake breads, roll oat balls, blend fruit and veggie smoothies, and make personalized pizzas. These activities help to promote balanced meals and a healthy relationship with food, where children are involved in producing their own sustenance. These lessons are fun and delicious, teach children the basics of kitchen safety, and expand their vocabulary as they wash vegetables, chop, peel, press and puree.
EXPANDED ELEMENTARY CURRICULUM
With a fresh set of specialty classes, our elementary campers are sure to be busy. These campers have three exciting classes to anticipate: Simply Spanish, Fine Arts Exploration and Sound Engineering. These classes span a total of 50 additional academic hours and encourage a deep understanding and focus. Campers experience a robust language program where Spanish is the only spoken language with our in-house Spanish teacher Ms. Fanny. During our Fine Arts Exploration lessons with instructor Mrs. DeLeon, children explore a variety of materials and get a brief lesson on the appropriate use of the mediums. Thereafter, they have complete creative freedom as they work creating mosaics, string art, stamp making, and more. Sound Engineering gives children the opportunity to learn how electricity is converted into sound as they work to assemble their very own Bluetooth speaker. William Duncan, PhD in Physics, teaches Sound Engineering.
In addition to our robust specialty classes, elementary students enjoy our extensive makerspace area. This space is a hub for children to explore the basics of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) through hands on learning. From building structures out of repurposed materials, to engineering small towers and basic electrical circuits for our older students, our campers love the opportunity to play, explore, deconstruct and reconstruct in our open-ended makerspace.
Friday Fun is often the highlight of the week for Living Montessori summer campers. After an enriching experience with themed activities, culinary projects and more, our Friday celebrations are the icing on the cake. Depending on the weather, children enjoy running through the sprinkler and scooping, pouring and splashing in water sensory tubs. When we have cooler summer Fridays, children are thrilled to jump in the bouncy house or wiggle around with outside dance parties.
