Okay montessori momma's and teachers, let's get a list going of ideas to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Montessori?
What ideas does your school/pta/teachers/pto/students have?
What ideas do you have?
We will have a celebration of the Centenary at our school - this will involve the Solstice Celebrations and Pledge to the Earth that combine our Montessori philosophy and LEED (leadership in energy and environmental design) certification. Plans are still underway.
There are some wonderful AMI events happening in Rome and in San Francisco, many events happening around the world. Check out http://montessoricentenary.org/ Under "events", then "worldwide celebrations", there is a "message board" that people are leaving their ideas on. Also, sign the "Montessori Centenary Declaration" while you're there.
The elementary children at our school are putting on a play about the life and work of Maria Montessori (for the life of me, I can't remember the name of it b/c my kids are in the primary (3-6) class and aren't participating in it, but we will certainly be going to see the production)!
Also, I am organizing a community garden project for our school in which the families will grow food for themselves as well as donate a portion of the crop to a local soup kitchen. We're calling it "Growing Vegetable Soup" after the Lois Ehlert book of the same name.
