Peek InOur Week … Mr. John’s Class … Week Of January 20, 2020

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.




Did You Know:
Pteronophobia is a fear of being tickled by feathers.  It’s also a fear of feathers themselves. The word “ptero” is the Greek word for feather, and “phobia” is also Greek, meaning fear.



January Birthdays:
A Montessori classroom consists of students ranging in age from three years to six years.  Here are our newest four and six year old students.

Peek In The Classroom:

This boy is working on the Pink Tower and Brown Stairs. He found an extension which further supports the relationship between the two materials.


This student is working on the Nine Tray and is composing numbers with the symbol and quantity. It is difficult to se here but she wanted to compose the “year” 2020.


This student is working on the Sandpaper Letters. The direct purpose of the sandpaper letters is to teach the child the sounds of the alphabet by means of muscular and visual memory. The indirect purposes of the sandpaper letters are preparation for reading and writing. The sandpaper letters are an exciting and important material for the children to discover the letters and letter sounds.


This Kindergarten Student is working on her kindergarten kinder which includes lessons in math, handwriting and language.
