The Birthday: a Celebration of Life

Birthdays are meant to be special, but often the true meaning of a birthday can get lost in all the fuss of the presents and cake. 

That is why I like to use a very special birthday ceremony in the classroom so that students can celebrate the life and growth of their classmate in a positive and collaborative way. You can find out more about its history and structure here : https://www.mariamontessori.com/2012/02/24/montessori-birthday-celebrations/.

So far in Year 3 we have been unlucky with the lockdown and have celebrated all birthdays online. Today was finally different. What a breath of fresh air! Thank you to all the parents for taking time looking through pictures with their children so that they could share these moments with their friends. 

And I take back the bit about the fuss of the cake. Cake is ALWAYS great! 😉

When I was 8 years old one of my favorite things to do was to visit the market with my grandmother and eat a warm garlicky langoš. Little did I know at that time that it would be another 32 years until I would be at the same place, reminiscing about the beautiful memories of my grandmother while eating this delicacy. I call it the langoš 360. A 360 turn of living, studying and teaching around the world.
