Peek In Our Week | Week of September 14, 2020 | Mr. John’s Classroom

Line Time:
Food Groups,
This week we had fun learning about the food groups in our class. Grains and Cereals (pasta, rice, bread, cereal, crackers), Fruit (apples, grapes, kiwi, mango which is my favorite), Vegetables (cucumbers, carrots, potato, broccoli, eggplant, which is my favorite) Dairy (my favorite… milk, cheese {I love cheese/smoked gouda}, yogurt), meats (beef, pork, chicken), and proteins, fats and sugars and how many servings we should have per day.



Cultural Subjects:
Your children can now count to ten in 5 languages (English, Latin, Sign Language, Spanish, German)


Fun Fact:
Did you know Fruit Loops are all the same flavor?  No need eating one color before the others.  I guess I was misled my whole life and I am bitter! Toucan Sam you disappoint me.  hehe




Peek In The Classroom:

This girl is enjoying working with the Binomial Cube. This work is found in the Sensorial area and is introduced to children from around 3.5 years to 4 years old. In these early stages, the purpose of the material is less focused on the complex mathematics behind the material, and rather is to provide a challenge for a child’s ability to find patterns and relationships between the blocks.


Messes are commonplace in the Montessori classroom (which is OK) because the children learn to take responsibility and clean their own mishaps.


He is working on the Knobbless Cylinders which is a Sensorial work. The purpose of these cylinders is to develop child’s fine-motor movements, concentration, hand-eye coordination, and visual perception of dimension. The material gives the child basic language important in math.


This picture shows an older student helping a younger student. In the Montessori classroom older students enjoy working with and helping younger students which help build confidence and leadership skills for the older students.

Weekly Theme:
North America-  Since we live on the continent of North America I thought it would be a great idea to identify some of the larger countries (Canada, Mexico) that border the U.S.A.  Also, we identified bodies of water (Atlantic Ocean, Pacific Ocean, Hudson Bay, Gulf Of Mexico, and The Great Lakes {H.O.M.E.S.}) that “touch” and are in our continent. We also reviewed the Cardinal Directions of North, East, South, West (Never Eat Soggy Worms).
