Peek In Our Week | Academic Enrichment, Cuyahoga Falls | Week of 4/9/2018

Lesson:

Your kindergarten students have been learning how a pronoun (we learned about 6 of them .. he, she, it, we, they, you) takes a place of a noun. He is a boy, she is a girl, but never ever call a person an “it”.  we also learned that the adjective describes nouns and of course can describe the pronoun.

Just the girls

Lesson:  Adverbs

No sight words or synonyms due to the International Festival

Peek Into Our Week | Academic Enrichment, Cuyahoga Falls | Week Of 3/19/2018

Line Time:

We will be learning about the parts of speech until the end of the year.  We the learned there are three articles.  They are A, An, The and we learned rules when we use those articles.  “A” goes with consonants, “an” go with vowels, and “the” goes with both consonants and vowels. Moving along we leaned that a pronoun takes the place of a noun and pronouns sometimes make our lives easier.  We went over six pronouns He(boy), she(girl), we( a group we are included), they( a group we are not included), it(we use for non-living things and when we don’t know what gender).  We never call a human an “it” because it is rude.  “You” was the last pronoun we became familiar with.

 

The small blue triangle is the symbol for the article in the Montessori Classroom.

Peek Into Our Week | Academic Enrichment, Cuyahoga Falls | Week Of 2/19/2018

Kindergarten Lessons:
This week we started our two week journey in the fascinating world of Geometry.   We learned that there is just not one kind of triangle.  Actually, there are many kinds of triangles but we focused on three (Equilateral, Isosceles, and Scalene).  We then looked at Quadrilaterals which are any four sided shape (square, rectangle, rhombus, trapezoid, chevron).  We moved on to polygons (pentagon, hexagon, heptagon, octagon, nonagon, decagon).  Learning how to count in Greek really paid off during this session.

Peek Into Our Week | Academic Enrichment Cuyahoga Falls Campus | Weeks 2/5/2018 through 2/12/2018

Kindergarten Lessons:

Math is a wonderful thing!

 

Week Of 2/5/2018:
The kindergarten students learned how to divide using manipulatives (Stamp Game). They learned static division (without borrowing) and dynamic division (with borrowing).

 

 

Purpose For The Stamp Game:
The stamp game is a tool for learning and reinforcing knowledge of the four maths operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The stamp game directly corresponds to the golden bead material which gave the child exposure to the decimal system.

 

Week Of 2/12/2018:
We broke away from the four operations and learned about fractions.
The purpose of fractions are to help the child gain a sensorial impression of fraction, introduction to the concept and notation of fractions, sensorial exploration of equivalency among fraction.  We divided things like circles, triangles, and rectangles.  We divided the class into boys/girls, Mr. John’s Students/Ms. Kate’s Students, and Buckeye Fans/xicigan fans.  No ficigan fans were found.

3/9 are boys. 6/9 are girls.

 

 

Cultural Subjects:
We can now count to ten in 21 different languages (English, Sign Language, Latin, Spanish, German, French, Greek, Japanese, Arabic with the Lebanese Dialect, Italian, Russian, Romanian, Swedish, Tagolog, Hebrew, Korean, Hungarian, Irish, Kiswahili, Welsh,  Dutch/Flemmish, and Polish),
since we really focus on the language part of the education, so we try to teach as many languages as possible, and also give dialectical therapy for the kids that needed.
