Cultural Subjects:
Your children can count to ten in 18 different languages (English, Latin, Sign Language, Spanish, French, German, Greek, Japanese, Arabic with the Lebanese dialect, Italian, Russian, Romanian, Swedish, Tagolog, Hebrew, Korean, Hungarian, and Irish).


Happy Birthday:
A Montessori Classroom has a mixed age groups of children ages 2.5 to 6 years old. Here is our newest 4 year old student, our newest 6 year old student, and our newest 3 1/2 year old student.






Saying Good Bye:
It is always sad to say good year to a friend.  It was this boy’s last day at Absorbent Minds Montessori School complete with a pizza party!



Line Time:
This week we looked at the skeletal system and if we didn’t have a skeleton we would be one messy blob on the ground (insert a flagellant sound).  We learned the skull protects our brain, the rib cage protects our lungs, and the spine keeps us sitting and standing straight.  We learned technical terms for our arms, leg and our digits which is a funny name called phalanges. We brought our life sized foam puzzle into our room.  His name is Elvis because we learned about the pelvis and it was a cool rhyming name.



Peek In My Room:

This student is working on the United States Puzzle Map. This material’s purpose is to identify the location and shape of the individual shapes of the states. The control chart will help in the naming of the states. This student has traced the states and is labeling the name on the traced states.


This Kindergarten Students is drawing and labeling our skeleton work “Elvis the Pelvis”. Doing this in her Kindergarten Binder reinforces this lesson of identifying parts of the Skeletal System.


In the Montessori Classroom some of my older students go through a right of passage by losing teeth and they are very proud of this life event. How much does a tooth go for now a days?


This child has completed doing the Nine Tray. The reason for this picture is how he is putting away the material. The child in a Montessori Classroom is taught to choose a work, work with the material correctly, complete the lesson, and put away the material where he found it.
