About Rooted Life Montessori's Primary Education Classes
The primary root of a plant digs deep into the earth, providing a means to anchor and support the plant and the subsequent root systems. Likewise, our primary classroom is a fertile ground for our children to firmly anchor their future academic, social, and spiritual learning.
Just as the root begins to pull nutrients from it's surrounding environment to allow a plant to emerge, so will our classroom nourish our preschoolers through an observation of God's wisdom and infinite order as we explore creation together.
The Montessori primary classroom has materials designed to stimulate all the senses of the child in order to collate and classify the knowledge they are gaining.
Subjects We Teach
Language (oral & Written)
Take A Look Inside Our Classroom
Take a look inside our primary classroom as our guides use hands-on material to introduce letters, sounds, cursive, and reading by combining Culture, & Language in our Primary class! Our teachers use this and other methods every day to teach core subjects to our students.
Developing The Four Core Skills
The primary aim of every material, every lesson, and all daily work, is to develop what we call OCCI.
Order(O): Order is created both externally, through a well-organized environment, and internally, in the way the child operates within the classroom. Thus, a routine is very important as well; with a place for every thing and every thing in its place.
Concentration (C): Concentration is necessary behavior before any learning takes place, and our classroom procedures and materials encourage it. The child who laboriously scrubs a table and attends to the details of their work is laying the foundation for calm effortless concentration in future academic pursuits.
Coordination( C): Physical coordination is necessary behavior for children because they learn through the body and senses. Skills such as balance, hand-eye coordination, rhythm, fine-motor control, and body control are all cultivated through opportunities provided by the materials. Attention to movement is not instinctive, but is rather a planned, voluntary action.
Independence (I): Independence is a goal of learning and comes from a child's innate desire to understand and affect his or her environment. It is only through self-motivated accomplishments that we experience the joy of learning.
Without OCCI, no academic curriculum has the opportunity to flourish. So, too, our primary classroom has its root encapsulated in a soil of OCCI to allow your child's full potential to bloom.
