A tenant of the Montessori classroom is respect; respect for productive work, respect for our environment, and respect for the feelings of others, to name a few. To show respect, the Primary classroom uses sign language frequently during our day. By using signs, we can communicate across the room to another person without drawing attention, disturbing others, or causing someone to feel embarrassed. You may notice your children using signs at home and the pictures above show our students signing the most often used at school. Feel free to try using them to communicate at home!
