Turning X’s into Squares

-->

 

Montessori math lesson reinforced at the St. Louis Science Center!  Got to appreciate that!

From VdM Parent, Cab Yau:

I love this picture of Hank from our spring break in St. Louis.  We were at the Science Center, and he ran to the display that said “math.”  He loved these turn-an-x (hexagon, octagon, triangle, etc.) -into-a-square puzzles.  I asked him if they were kind of like his equivalence plates.  It was pretty cool because each one was broken into specific shapes that you had to make fit into the other shape, and it told of the person who found out about this particular equivalence – and some were fairly recent (1926!).

A Roma!

Family Favazza journeyed to Italy over their spring break, and by the photographs, it definitely appears that much was seen, enjoyed and savored while in Rome!  Much appreciation for sharing with us!

Seth and Ollie traveled to Tybee Beach to swim in the Atlantic, and they disc-golfed in Birmingham, Alabama AFTER Seth returned from the MMUN in New York City.  THAT is one heck of a spring break! 

THANK YOU for sharing your pictures with us!  More to come!

 

 

Winston Nailed It!

Winston rose to the challenge, oh, yes, he did!

Each day of spring break our Lower Elementary friend crafted a “V,” a “D” and an “M” into his surroundings or out of his surroundings for the Villa di Maria Montessori SPRING BREAK SHOUT-OUT!  Winston’s first VdM in the sand churned his creative wheels, and he continued to “find” VdM’s each day.

Much appreciation and a huge high-five out to Winston for making it happen!
