Line Time:
This week we learned about reptiles and what makes a reptile a reptile.  Reptile are vertebrates, cold blooded (body temperature changes to the temperature around them), they are born from hard shelled eggs and their skin is dry and with scales.  Some examples of reptiles are snakes, turtles, and lizards. 

Was Godzilla a reptile?

 

Birthdays:

Catching up on the birthdays in the classroom. Here are my newest 3,4,5 year Olds. The amount of fingers indicates how hold they are.

 

Cultural Subjects:
Your Children can now count to ten in 8 languages (English, Latin, Sign Language, Spanish, German, French, Greek, Japanese, and Arabic with the Lebanese dialect).

 

Peek In Our Classroom:

The Trinomial Cube are blocks are color coded and are different sizes to represent the algebraic Binomial and Trinomial formulas. The purpose is not to teach math but to challenge the child to find patterns and spatial relationships.

 

These students are working with the Sequencing Cards. Sequencing is one of many skills that contributes to students’ ability to comprehend what they read. Sequencing refers to the identification of the components of a story… the beginning, middle, and end… and also to the ability to retell the events within a given text in the order in which they occurred.

 

These two students are working on the ever popular Pink Tower. The Pink Tower, iconic to the Montessori classroom, embodies the direct and indirect purpose of most Montessori materials. Stacking the cubes calls for visual discrimination, coordination, patterns, the concept of ten and precision.

 

The Number Rods is a Math Material and it’s aim is to experience the qualities and quantities of each number and to learn their respective names. Also, to show that each number is represented by a single object, as a whole, separate from others and finally to help memorize the sequence of numbers from 1 to 10.
