Math Program (Tues/Thurs)

 

 

 

 

Our Math program is a beautiful combination of Montessori and Waldorf learning concepts. Montessori math manipulatives will be introduced to learn various math concepts. Depending on the child's level, the Montessori K-3 curriculum includes number recognition, decimal system, geometry, four operations of math: addition, multiplication, subtraction and division. Waldorf's beautiful math fairy tales and art projects help children create and solve their own word problems, building a strong foundation for future Algebra concepts.

 

Woodworking and Math: The children enjoy monthly woodworking projects including projects they design on their own. Woodworking allows the children to apply their math skills in a creative way.

 

 

Math Games: The children learn a variety of fun games to further develop their math skills. Games include: checkers, chess, backgammon, monopoly, chutes and ladders, mancala, cooperative yoga board games, Sleeping Queens etc.
