Japan’s Golden Week includes four national holidays and two weekends. It becomes a very busy time in Japan when Showa Day, Constitution Day (Kenpo kinenbi), Greenery Day (Midori no hi), and Children’s Day (Kodomono-hi) are all celebrated. Bring some of this excitement to your Montessori classroom!
As much as possible, NAMC’s web blog reflects the Montessori curriculum as provided in its teacher training programs. We realize and respect that Montessori schools are unique and may vary their schedules and offerings in accordance with the needs of their individual communities. We hope that our readers will find our articles useful and inspiring as a contribution to the global Montessori community. © the North American Montessori Center - originally posted in its entirety at Montessori Teacher Training on Wednesday, April 25, 2012.
