Happy Thanksgiving!

This week we learned about Thanksgiving! We briefly covered the history of the day, and how Thanksgiving is a holiday that is celebrated at different times all over the world to give thanks for the harvest in the Fall. We also discussed how this is a time for us to be grateful for all that we have. We talked about what makes our hearts happy, and then told the class what we’re most grateful for. Mom, Dads, sisters, brothers, and pets were at the top of the list!

We also celebrated the holiday with some fun activities including a game of “Turkey Says”, following along with a directed drawing, and creating our own “Recipe for Cooking a Turkey.” We hope you enjoy these recipes for years to come, they truly brought us so much joy! Your children are hilarious!

Turkey says fly like a bat. Turkey says jump up and down. Turkey says be a bag. Turkey says touch your knee.

Community Helpers!

We had a surprise visit from some Community Helpers on Monday! Officer Davis and Officer Dennis from the Cuyahoga Falls Police Department came to talk to us about dog safety. We then got to meet a very special K-9 named Dan! But the best part was making the sirens and lights go off on the police car!

Thank you Officer Davis for coming to visit us! We were so excited!
Thank you Officer Dennis and Dan for visiting us! We loved learning about K-9 dogs!
Making the lights and sirens go off was the best part!
Haha we were trying to wake up the firefighters next door!


We wrapped up the week with Mr. John’s favorite day of the school year! We all wore our OSU colors to help the Buckeyes get ready for the Big Game this weekend!

We are Thankful for YOU!

Thank you to each of our families, from the bottom of our hearts, for all your help and support. We couldn’t do what we do each day without you. We hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday full of yummy food and beautiful memories!

A Peek At Our Week- Aspen- 11/14/22 – 11/18/22 – North America – Pilgrims, Native Americans, and Thanksgiving!

This week in Aspen we began our lessons involving the continent of North America, focusing on the history of Thanksgiving! Aspen learned all about a group of people known as the Pilgrims. We discovered that the Pilgrims once lived in England, and they decided to leave because they held different beliefs than the king of England. Aspen also learned that a king has absolute power! You didn’t argue with the king of England in the 1600’s! We then researched how the Pilgrims traveled to North America, also known as the “New World” in the1600’s. We discovered that they traveled by boat (The Mayflower), and it took sixty-six days before they arrived in Massachusetts! Aspen also learned that when the Pilgrims arrived in the New World they did not find an Acme, a Giant Eagle, or homes ready to move into. The Pilgrims had to hunt for their own food, grow their own crops, and build their own houses from scratch! They couldn’t even purchase wood for their homes at a Home Depot! We further discovered life was harsh and full of hard work for the Pilgrims. Even the Pilgrim children had to work! We then watched a quick video on YouTube about Pilgrim life! We then found out that arriving in a New World brought uncertainty, and growing food or hunting was very difficult. Thankfully, there was a group of people already living near Plymouth, Massachusetts called the Wampanoag! They helped guide the Pilgrims so that they could survive in the New World. After harvest time, the Pilgrims and Wampanoag people gathered together to celebrate and give thanks for the harvest and everything else that they were thankful for! As a group, we then discussed all of the things we are thankful for in our own lives. Check out the bulletin board outside our room to see what our Aspen group gave thanks for!

In Kindergarten Workshop, the kindergarten students began their lessons involving currency. They took a look at different types of currency from around the world, and they learned all about the coins we use in the U.S.A. They then practiced identifying coins with their corresponding amounts. In Readers Workshop, the Cardinals and Chickadees learned how to identify the subject and predicate within a sentence. We learned that the subject is….. and the predicate is…. We then read sentences out loud and located both the subject and predicate within our sentences, practicing our sentence structure and how to form a sentence that makes sense. Then we practiced determining if a sentence made sense by investigating some sample sentences. Being the amazing children they are, the kindergarteners also located sight words within our sample sentences. In Writers Workshop, our kindergarteners focused on putting their entire thought on a paper, creating sentences that make sense.

Next week we will be continuing to talk about North America but we will also be learning about table manners, place setting, and discussing more about what it means to be thankful. Also, as a reminder, there is no school on Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday in observance of Thanksgiving.

Learning how to use a baster.

Planting corn like the Native Americans using soil (black river rocks), corn, and fish (Swedish Fish).

Fun with the Geography Puzzle Maps!!

Whisking bubbles is a great indirect preparation for coloring and staying within the lines! You whisk too fast you spill the water! You color to fast , you go out of the lines!!

Line Time:
Native Americans/Thanksgiving-  We talked about Native Americans and how Indians were named Indians.  On student informed us that Christopher Columbus landed in North America but thought he was in India.  Hence, the name.  We talked about how Native Americans were indigenous.  Then the Pilgrims came over from Europe on a ship called the Mayflower.  The pilgrims had a rough go of it at the beginning because they didn’t have enough blankets or food.  They could not just go to Target or Giant Eagle to get supplies because at that time there were just woods and wild life. 

A Message From Mr. John (It is officially hate xichigan week!):

Did you know?:
Human teeth are the only part of the human body that can not heal itself. Teeth are coated in enamel which is not a living tissue. Go to the 50 second mark and you’ll see Paul has a chipped tooth. If my memory is correct he was in a minor moped accident. Don’t ask me how I remember this stuff.

Your Kids Say The Darndest Things (Donuuuts):

Peek Into The Cherry Blossom Classroom – week of 11/14/22

Our Focus Lesson & Preschool Lesson:

Our Blossoms discussed Community Helpers this week! We learned that Community Helpers are people in our community that help us or help others. We learned about firefighters, police officers, doctors, dentists, paramedics, counselors, mail carriers, teachers, and more! We learned how these people help us, what tools they use to help, and what clothing they wear in their jobs.

This child is sorting tools that community helpers would use!

We wrapped up our week of Community Helpers by helping others ourselves. We were very happy to participate in Operation Christmas Child. We discussed how there are children in other places of the world that either don’t have the things we have at home or won’t receive many items for Christmas. We learned that we can help those children through Operation Christmas Child! We packed boxes full of gifts for others and imagined all of the continents our boxes could go!

We hope these boxes we packed bring so many smiles to other children!
Inside of each of these boxes are basic necessities, toys, art supplies, and a special letter from one of our Blossoms. In the letter, our students told the recieving child what country they are from, their favorite food, and what they like to do for fun!
We are so thankful for our amazing parent volunteers!

Kindergarten Lesson:

Kindergarteners learned about coins with Mr. John this week. They even brought in coins from home to sort and count. In Handwriting, our Kindergarteners finished learning to write loop letters, and will be practicing writing words that contain loop letters next! Both in Reader’s Workshop and Writer’s Workshop, our Kinders learned about subjects and predicates. Our Readers learned how to find the subject within in a sentence and find the part of the sentence that tells what the subject is doing. And our Writers practiced “writing out the whole thought” in their new books, so that we can tell who and what happened within their stories!

Check out our Kindergarteners exploring different coins!


Happy Birthday to our newest 3 year old!

Brrrrr! It’s Cold Outside!

Our Ohio temperatures changed quickly this week! We will continue to play outside, weather permitting, as long as the feels like temperature is above 25 degrees. Please send your child to school with a coat, hat, gloves or mittens, and appropriate outdoor shoes each day. Hats and gloves can be kept in your child’s backpack! Thank you for your help!

All bundled up! We love to play outside, even in the cold!


A Journey to the North Pole Christmas Show will be Friday, December 16! (Rehearsal will be Wednesday, December 14!) The Blossoms will be singing about Christmas Trees! Your child will need a plain, long sleeve, green shirt , black or green bottoms, and tennis shoes. PLEASE BRING YOUR CHILD’S GREEN SHIRT TO SCHOOL BY THURSDAY, DECEMBER 1. We will be decorating our shirts to look like Christmas Trees here at school and will return them to you the week of the show.

Peek Into Worktime:

This child is working with cursive booklets. We use this work to help develop fine motor skills and prepare the child for writing in cursive.
This child is working with the 100 Board, it is currently his favorite work in the classroom! We use this work to reinforce counting in sequence and recognizing symbols from 1 to 100.
This Kindergartener is working in her Primary Phonics Workbook. We use these workbooks as a support for the reading skills we are learning. This child is learning about “magic e” at the end of the word and how that special letter makes the vowel say its name.
These three Kindergarteners are working with the Square Chains that are found in our Bead Cabinet. This work reinforces the ability to count in sequence. It also introduces the concept of counting in multiples and skip counting.

Peek into the Cherry Blossom Classroom – week of 11/7/22

Our Focus Lesson & Preschool Lesson:

This week the Blossoms studied Mammals. We learned the characteristics of a mammal – they are vertebrates, they are warm blooded, they are covered in hair or fur, they give birth to live young, and babies drink their mother’s milk. We talked about many different mammals, but focused on three. We learned the parts of a horse, the life cycle of a human, and had a very special rabbit visitor!

We discussed all of the characteristics that make this rabbit a mammal! We were lucky enough to watch him move around and eat. Our favorite parts were watching his nose and petting his soft fur!
This is Tito, the rabbit. He is the cutest visitor we have ever had!

Kindergarten Lesson:

Kindergarteners continued their study of telling time. They are now practicing telling time to the hour, the half hour, and the quarter hour. They finished learning how to write loop letters in cursive this week, and will be practicing more next week. In Reader’s Workshop, our young readers practiced rhyming and word families, and read books to Ms. Kelley! Writer’s Workshop saw the end of another writing unit, our young authors celebrated with an Author Share Day! They read their true stories to their friends, and we celebrated the details in their pictures and the words that they have written!

So proud of these young authors!

Book Share Fridays:

This school year we added Book Share Fridays to our weekly routine. At the end of each week one child is able to bring in their favorite book and their favorite stuffed animal. They tell us all about their special friend and then help Ms. Tonya read their favorite book to the class. We LOVE sharing these special stories with your child and can’t wait to keep Book Share Fridays going!

Elsa helped us read The Little Mermaid!
Guess How Much I Love You is one of my favorite books too!
This book had so many facts about African animals!
We had to turn the book sideways to read this cool book about soccer!
Ladybug Girl helped rescued dogs get adopted – what a wonderful story!

Peek Into Work Time:

This preschooler is using our Sound and Object Box to connect letter sounds to objects that begin with that sound. This work provides children a unique tactile element to their literacy work.
This preschooler is working with our Number Cards and Table Top Rods, with symbols not in order. This work connects the symbols and the concrete representation of quantity plus shows the child the quantities are the same but in random order.
This preschool wanted to build the number 1,444. He wrote out the number card himself and then composed the number with the Golden Bead Materials. The Golden Bead Materials are such a versatile component of the Montessori classroom as it teaches the names for quantities in each category (“unit”; “ten”; “hundred”; “thousand”), shows the relationship between one category and the next, offers the child the sensorial experience of the relative sizes of the categories (bulk), extends the sensorial experience of the different categories and the difference in bulk, for instance, between 6 units and 6 hundreds, and introduces the symbols for the quantities in the Decimal System

Line Time:
  We traveled back in time and discovered some fascinating things about certain dinosaurs.  We learned that dinosaurs no longer exist and that they are extinct.  We know dinosaurs exist because scientist found their bones or fossils.  From these fossil we saw that some teeth were long and sharp to tear flesh from it’s prey which belonged to meat eaters or carnivores (T Rex).  Some teeth were flat for grinding plants, leaves, and branches and belonged to plant eaters or herbivores (Brachiosauras).

Who remembers Dinosaurs?  Not the Momma!

Our little Paleontologists. Wasn’t Ross on Friends one of these?

Did You Know?
The “German” part of German chocolate cake comes from an American man—not a European country. Specifically, it’s named after Sam German, who in 1852 created the formula for a mild dark baking chocolate bar for Baker’s Chocolate Company, which was subsequently named Baker’s German’s Sweet Chocolate. Fast-forward to June 13, 1957. The Dallas Morning Star published the recipe for the cake, invented and submitted by a reader identified as Mrs. George Clay, according to What’s Cooking America.

Sorting is an activity students begin to enjoy as they enter the sensitive period for order. In a world so big, order gives them a sense of control and comfort. One way children create order is through categorizing, or sorting.
The key purpose of the Moveable Alphabet is to prepare children for writing, reading, and spelling. The child’s use of the material progresses from single words, to phrases, and eventually to stories. In this way, the Moveable Alphabet teaches children how to symbolize their own thoughts, and begin to write creatively.

Arachnids, Insects, Invertebrates-
This week we broke away from vertebrates and looked at some invertebrates. Namely, insects, arachnids, and some other invertebrates. We learned that insects have a head, thorax, abdomen, six legs, and two antennae. Some examples of insects are the ladybug, bee, butterfly, and ants. Arachnids are a bit different and have a fused head and thorax (called a cephalothorax) and an abdomen. Some arachnids include spiders, ticks, and scorpions.

A Peek At Our Week- Aspen- 10/24/22-10/28/22 – Bats, Cats, and More!!

This week in Aspen it was more Halloween themed fun! We utilized the upcoming holiday as an opportunity to learn all about Bats and Cats! We spent the week discovering so many interesting and fun facts while practicing our research skills! Ask your child what the word research means. During group lessons we learned that bats are not that spooky and are actually quite fascinating and unique creatures. Did you know….that bats are not birds even though they fly? Did you know that they are mammals?? Aspen learned this amazing fact and more! We took a deeper look at what characteristics qualify a living organism to be classified as a mammal. We then discovered that cats are also mammals and also discovered that the word cat rhymes with bat!! Thus, we dove into many activities involving rhyming fun!!

In Kindergarten Workshop, the kindergarteners began their introductory lessons on telling time on an analog clock! They spent the week skip counting by fives and practicing the necessary skills for telling time! They sure have been helping to keep us on schedule! In Readers Workshop, the Cardinals continued to focus on the sequence of events within a story and comprehension skills. We read Give Me Back My Bones and discussed what events took place within the story, focusing on when (the order) and how the events happened. We also spotted sight words and rhyming words within the story. The Cardinals also received another beginning reader book to practice these skills independently. The Chickadees continued phonics practice, decoding words with some phonics games with rhyming fun! We incorporated the games from previous weeks into one Mega Phonics Game! The Chickadees also read Give Me Back My Bones, and we also discussed the order and sequence of events within a story. We then practiced creating our own mini story with our own sequence of events. The Chickadees also learned a few new sight words! In Writers Workshop, the kindergarteners continued to explore what it takes to be a writer while practicing their best handwriting skills!

We also had our Halloween classroom party and Trunk Or Treat! All of the cars were decorated so creatively! Thank you for making our Halloween so special and fun! Another special thank you to our parent volunteers helping out! You are all amazing!

Work with the Knobless Cylinders- development of fine motor skills, hand eye coordination, and the visual discrimination of dimension.

Skip counting by six! Mathematical fun exploring the linear sequence of numbers!

Birds– This week we learned about what makes a bird a bird. We learned a bird is a vertebrate and is warm blooded. A bird is born from a hard shelled egg and has feathers. Not all birds can fly and the ones that can not fly are called flightless birds which include penguins, ostriches, and the dodo bird. The jury is still out if chickens can fly.
