Line Time:
Ground Rules redux….   Not really redux because we added more things such as RESPECT! and Social Responsibility.  Your children are catching on very quickly which makes Ms. Kathleen, Ms. Ashlie, and Mr. John very happy people. Ms. Brandy (Owner and Founder of AMMS) observed our classroom without notice.  She was pleasantly surprised how you children nicely sat on line time for over 30 minutes and how the were engaged in work throughout the morning.  She said our classroom was “Peaceful and Productive.”  That is saying a lot for having 17 brand new students and only being the second week of school.  I just want reiterate the teachers have some part in this behavior but it is your children are the ones “catching on”  This is going to be a GREAT year!

 

Peek In Our Week:

This Practical Life Material is stringing small beads. This helps with the child’s concentration and fine motor skills. 

This Math Material is The Teen Board. The Teen Board is one of the first works introduced within the math sequence within linear counting. It also continues the concept of quantity and symbol. Notice how other children are observing the student work.

 

Ms. Kathleen giving a group lesson on the Color Box 2. The main purpose of the Color Box is to develop a child’s visual sense of color and helps with developing concentration.
This student is working with one of our Science Bins (Insects). She finds a rubber insect (not real) and finds the matching insect in the book.

 

Cultural Subjects:
We now can count to ten in 4 languages (English, Sign Language, Latin, and Spanish).
