Sensitive periods are a precise time when the child’s mind is open to learn a specific skill. Our classroom is designed to address the sensitive periods between 0 and 18 months. The children are starting to demonstrate their knowledge and it is amazing!
Our students are indicating a sense of order; beginning to choose and replace work on the shelves. They are eating lunches as a community. They are starting to care for the environment. Evan helps us wipe surfaces, and Hadley pushes in chairs.
The explosion of new vocabulary is so amusing. So often I look at Ms.Rachel in disbelief and ask if she heard a particular word. The children are starting to identify parts of the body. Some of them can repeat not only their own names but each other’s and identify pictures of classmates.
