Montessori Birthday Celebrations.. 2016-17

Birthday celebrations at Lecole Montessori International School

At LMI School we like to celebrate birthdays in a very special way which allows the children to have a greater understanding of the passage of time.  We begin the celebration by a ‘birthday walk’ during which your child will walk around a candle which represents the sun. The birthday child walks in the shape of an ellipse, whilst carrying a small globe. The other children sit around the edge of the ellipse and watch. Each complete ‘orbit’ of the ‘earth’ around the ‘sun’ represents 1 year.
