Line Time:
The month started off by going back in time and studying the Ancient Romans.  The Ancient Romans had similar Gods as the Ancient Greeks.  The king of all Gods in Rome was Jupiter and his wife Juno who was the Goddess of Marriage and childbirth.  Pluto was the God of the Underworld, Neptune was the God of the Seas, and finally we came across the God of War, Mars.  Did you notice that a lot of these Gods had planets named after them?

   

 

                                   

 

                          

 

 

Cultural Subjects:
Your children can now count to ten in 24 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, Welsh, Dutch/Flemmish, Polish, Serbo-Croation, and Cebuano ).

 

The Paz:

Pastor Kirk reading The Kissing Hand where a mother’s kiss sticks to her son’s hand and he gets a kiss from that kiss on his hand when he is lonely.

 

Dental Hygienist Visitor:

We had a Dental Hygienist visit and she discussed what is good and bad for your teeth.

 

Peek In Our Classroom:

This student is working on the Teen Board. This work focuses on the correlation between quantity and symbol of the teen numbers. Some students have difficulty identifying the number 11, 12, 13, and 15 since they do not follow the rules that 14, 16, 17, 18, 19 follow. It is not “two teen, three teen, five teen”

 

She is working on the Second Introduction to Decimals (exchanging). This gives the child the concept that 10 ones equals 1 ten, 10 tens equals a hundred, 10 hundreds equal a thousand. This also prepares the child to recognize the different columns ( unit column, ten column, hundred column, and thousand column).

 

This boy had an impromptu urge to do some house cleaning. He voluntarily started to dust the shelves. This is an example of Care of the Environment: this child became aware of the accumulation of dust and is helped to dust independently.

 

One of the great things about the Montessori materials is the extension. These extensions give the student the opportunity to revisit works. They create interesting shapes and find the relationship between two or more materials. This student discovered the relationship between the knobbed cylinders and knobbless cylinders.
