Summer at CMS 2016

Summer at CMS is both an introduction to the Montessori environment and a continuation for those students who are currently enrolled. This symbiotic mix allows children who are returning the opportunity to share their knowledge and experience, while their new friends glean the benefits.

Rotating themes provide the base from which all of our summer camp activities grow. Children will feel comfortable knowing the daily routine while looking forward to new experiences that stem from our various units of study.

The schedule will mirror that of our academic year, although the Montessori work cycle will often be shortened so that children can enjoy more social and physical development. Our teachers will lead students in a combination of indoor and outdoor activities such as arts, crafts, music, creative movement, yoga, outdoor play, and gardening.

This Summer's Themes

Dinosaurs (July 11 - July 29)

During the first weeks of summer we'll take a trip back in time to explore dinosaurs. We'll learn about everything from the Tyrannosaurus Rex to the Pterodactyl, the difference between herbivores and carnivores, and the three periods of the Mesozoic Era in which the dinosaurs lived so long ago. We’ll discuss how a real dinosaur dig is set up and use some of the tools that help archeologists excavate dinosaur bones.

Olympics in Rio (August 1 - August 26)

Let's all celebrate the 2016 Summer Olympics! We'll learn about Brazilian culture, food and history, as well as learning about the greater continent of South America. Children will look forward to participating in daily medal ceremonies to keep track of each country's wins. These discussions will be a great starting point to our studies of many different countries and country capitals. Movement classes centered around the summer games will keep everyone moving both indoors and outdoors!
