What’s The Diff?
Potatoes au gratin and scalloped potatoes are both potato side dishes involving minimal prep time to make a rich, creamy, starchy treat. These two dishes have many things in common, but there are also subtle differences between the two. I spared you a 6 paragraph explanation and bullet pointed the similarities and differences.

Both are baked.
The potatoes are sliced similarly.
Both are baked.

Au gratin potatoes use breadcrumbs.
Scalloped potatoes don’t use cheese.
Au gratin potatoes are sliced thinner.

Goodbye Allie:

This is Allie’s last week. She was a great addition to the classroom.

May Birthdays: A Montessori classroom prides itself on a multiaged classroom. Here are our newest 5 and 29 year olds.

A Message From Mr. John (The buffet line):

Cultural Subjects:
Your children can now count to ten in 27 languages (English, Latin, Sign Language, Spanish, German, French, Greek, Japanese, Arabic with the Lebanese dialect, Italian, Russian, Romanian, Swedish, Tagalog, Hebrew, Korean, Irish, Kiswahili, Irish, Welsh, Dutch/Flemmish, Polish, Serbo-Croation, Cebuano, Malay, Farsi, Turkish).

Peek In The Classroom: 

The aim of the 9 Layout lesson is to help children understand number placement (1s, 10s, 100s, 1000s) as well as reiterate the association between quantity and numeral. It’s one of the lengthier mathematics activities and is good for encouraging concentration
Excitement ensues when a new work is presented.
The beauty of having the Elementary Program under the same roof as the Primary Program is that we get visitors and get to see what the older students are working on.
This activity encourages the child to associate numbers from 11 – 99 using Seguin Board B and the beads. This activity helps the child link quantity, name, and symbol (concrete and abstract), as well as it prepares him for operations that will be done later on.
