Montessori Inspiration

"Education should no longer be mostly imparting knowledge but must take a new path, seeking the release of human potentials."

LENT

The Montessori Unit has been meeting in the SHC chapel each Wednesday in Lent.  Each week our Lenten banner has a new symbol added.  We also add another verse to our Lenten Song. Each symbol gives us a reminder that Jesus loves us and wants us to love one another with our kind words and actions. Our first symbol was the cross made from a mosaic piece from each class in our unit coming together as one.  Check the virtual resource box for our Lenten symbol coloring sheets. Additional ideas for templates would be to use watercolor paints or glue torn paper ( tissue, wrapping, construction) to fill in the templates. 

Our Lenten Symbol Song ( sung to This Little Light of Mine)
