My Montessori School - A Very Montessori Poem


NAMC montessori school montessori poem boy dropping water
At school I am busy with my work and when I play,
It’s my special place where I feel big and I learn more every day.
I learn my numbers, learn my sounds,
I help my friends when they feel down,
Math and Science, Geography too,
Exploring with my senses, mixing colors, using glue,
Adding and subtracting with materials galore,
Working with a friend, doing a puzzle on the floor,
Sharing, caring, kindness too
That’s the way we act at Buena Vista school

I love that everything is just my size,
And I can do things by myself,
When I need a drink of water, I use the jug upon the shelf,
If I spill I know what to do, I clean it up with the cloth that is blue,
I tidy up my very own work and tuck my chair in too,
I know that the color purple is made from mixing red and blue

My school is a place where I learn as I play
All about the earth and how many hours in a day,
I like to sing the continent song,
I know it’s o.k. if I do something wrong,
None of us are perfect and mistakes help me grow,
I’m learning how to tie my shoes and how to make a bow

I learn the importance of being kind,
To wait my turn when I’m standing in line
To wash my hands before I eat
To eat my fruit & veggies before I eat my treat

I learn about the planets, and the parts of a flower too,
I put my work back on the shelf and the lid back on the glue
I sing, I dance, I write my name
I even play the ‘knock knock game’

I've learned about a snail and a worm.
I’m practicing how to take my turn.
I help
my friends when they’re in need,
I learn the importance of doing a kind deed
I sound out words from left to right,
I use my words & never fight.

My school is a peaceful place, my teachers love me so,
Caring, sharing, laughing, learning-- a place where I can grow!
