Hudson Montessori School Reveals Year-Long Learning Theme at Kickoff Event
One of the unique components of Hudson Montessori's curriculum is our year-long study based on an annual theme. Each new school year, our classrooms focus on facets of an impactful, far-reaching theme that students study spanning the year’s curriculum. This year, each class will explore and uniquely express themselves through the theme: My World: Through The Eyes of the Child.
To kickoff the theme on Friday, Oct. 27, parents joined their students in the classrooms to see displays, projects, and presentations children have created so far.
The broad annual theme allows each class to carve out its own niche based on the theme. For example, our Upper Elementary students have been reviewing games played by children worldwide and the cultural and social impacts each game offers through their class theme, "The World Through a Child's Eyes: The Evolution of Games.”
Some of the younger classes are exploring the food children eat around the world, and the strong connection sharing meals brings all over the globe. Parents brought delicious multicultural meals to potluck lunches in the classrooms.
Thank you to all the teaching staff, students, and families who made our kickoff event a resounding success. We look forward to see all the exciting studies that will come from this theme throughout the year, culminating with our Social Studies Fair in May and our Year End Celebration in June. We start now by exciting our senses as we study the world through the eyes of our children here and around the globe.
