Academic Enrichment ~~~ Cuyahoga Falls Campus ~~~ Week of 2/18/2019

Lesson:
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 In Our Week === Mr. John’s Class === Week Of January 28, 2019

Line Time:
This week we learned about Internal Organs.  We learned the brain is the control center of your body that sends and receives.  Our lungs help us breathe, the heart pumps our blood and the stomach begins to digest our food with acid.  The small intestines digest the food and send nutrients to the rest of our body and the large intestines push through the waste that creates our bowel movements (poop). The children were fascinated that our kidneys process the body’s water and the liver filters toxins, that’s why is important to take lots of water, even when you’re not home. The waste water is called urine (pee).  The children learned where the organs are located with the help of our Living Internal Organ T-shirt.  The shirt helped the children find the organs location by velcroing the organs to the spot on the t-shirt. 

 

Cultural Subjects:
Your children can now count to ten in 19 languages (English, Latin, Sign Language, Spanish, German, French, Japanese, Greek, Arabic with the Lebanese Dialect, Italian, Russian, Romanian, Swedish, Tagolog, Hebrew, Korean, Hungarian, Irish, Kiswahili).

 

Peek In Our Classroom:

Between the ages of 3 to 6, the child needs to practice, perfect, and consolidate the body’s movements. For this reason, Dr. Montessori began using the “Walking on the Line” as a Practical Life exercise. This exercise helps the child control his body, develop balance and perfect equilibrium, as well as to strengthen the mind’s control of its body’s movements. The “line” used during this exercise is a continuous and permanent shape in the environment.  During this exercise, you may want to play some soft, steady, and calm music in the background. I use Pachelbel’s Canon D Major which is exactly 5 minutes (well, 4 minutes 57 seconds but who is splitting hairs?). You can notice the “safe hands” and “bubbles” as the students walk the line

 

 

You may already know a bit about the Montessori work period, also known as the work cycle. A Montessori work cycle is an uninterrupted block of time. During this time children are able to explore the prepared environment and engage with materials of their own choosing. Walk into any Montessori classroom and you will see children completely engaged in their work. This is due to the fact that the heart of a Montessori program is the three-hour work cycle. The early childhood environment focuses on concentration, coordination, order, and independence. Therefore, children must be given the time they need to fully submerge themselves in the work in order for these traits to manifest themselves. Everything in a Montessori classroom has and educational purpose. Yes, children do what they like AND like what they do in a Montessori classroom.  Here you notice, a typical scene, (left to right)  some socializing, individual work, putting back materials/cleaning after herself, a teacher giving a lesson, and two friends working together.
