Jazz Foundation of America
On Thursday morning, Kindergarten students enjoyed a jazz concert sponsored by the Jazz Foundation of America. Guest artists included Waterfront Montessori’s Music Teacher Greg Murphy on piano, Billy Johnson on double bass and his brother Mark Johnson on percussion.
The Non-Napping Primary students were excited to learn about North America, the continent in which we live. They learned it is the only continent in the world that has all climatic types. It has savannah and tropical rainforest in Central America, tundra in the northern parts of Canada and Alaska, and permanent ice cap in Greenland, which is considered part of the continent. There are also semi-arid and desert conditions near areas surrounded by high mountains.
The Primary 1 students learned about different animals that live on the North American continent, including the Bald Eagle. They had fun creating their own Bald Eagle puppets
