At our Montessori school, I help out with the kids ages 3-6.<br>

I would, however, like to approach the director and ask her what is a good idea of a psychomotor skills class. I feel if I approached her with some ideas in mind, I would sound as though i am uneducated about the subject.<br><br>
Please let me know how psychomotor classes are conducted in your school. thanks!
