Line Time:

We ended the month by learning about our own state of Ohio.  The students were first taught how to spell Ohio.  OH-IO !  We learned that the flag of Ohio is the only flag that is not the shape of a rectangle.  The official nickname of Ohio is the Buckeye State and the Buckeye Tree is the official tree of Ohio.  The white tailed deer and trilobite are the mammal and fossil of Ohio.  We found a theme of the color “red/”scarlet for the rest of the official things of Ohio.  The flower is the scarlet carnation, bird is the cardinal, insect is the lady bug and the official drink is tomato juice.  The official rock and roll song is “Hang On Sloopy”

 

Peek In Our Classroom:

 

Absorbent Minds Montessori School has a relationship with the University of Akron where we welcome field students. The two field students are working with their Roo Buddy. This week they are focusing on shapes and colors.
Having fun on Pajama Day.

 

We are continuing to track the growth of the plant. It grew from 18 inches to 24 inches or 24 cm to 60 cm. The flower is starting to bloom.
The final measurement revealed no more growth in the stalk but the flower bloomed. The students found a work that looked very similar to the plant. A great opportunity to do a lesson on The parts of the plant.
