Did You Know? (Yellow Stop Signs, are you kidding me?):
In 1922, the American Association of State Highway Officials met to determine a standard design for stop signs, and that’s where they decided on the color—yellow. Wait, what? Yes, according to Business Insider, because they thought that yellow would grab drivers’ attention. They’d also considered red, but there was no dye available at the time that wouldn’t eventually fade. By 1954, however, sign makers had access to fade-resistant porcelain enamel, and could finally start making stop signs the red color we recognize today.



A Message From Mr. John (It is a Family Affair):

Ms. Emily, our high school intern reads to a couple of boys. Emily’s time with us is winding down.


These students are raking turns walking in the maze. One of the most popular extension works is making the Maze with the Red Rods. Using a laminated card that shows the picture of The Maze, the children build a winding path that uses the longest rods first and then the smallest rods to make the interior. The students have to use visual discrimination skills to decide where the rods need to be placed in order to make The Maze work. Once completed, the children may quietly take off their shoes and walk inside The Maze taking careful steps to ensure that they do not bump a Red Rod out of place. Taking turns and waiting patiently are also important parts of doing this work cooperatively with a classmate, as only one child at a time is allowed inside The Maze.


This girl is sewing. Sewing is a wonderful Montessori practical life activity. Not only is it great for developing skills such as fine-motor coordination and concentration, but many sewing projects have added value as “real work” projects children can complete.


These students are working together “setting a table” activity. Setting up the table for a meal is an easy job for children to accomplish. If you model how to do the job and have all the things easily accessible, children will quickly take over how to do this themselves. Some people like to use template mats to show younger children where to place things. For example, with an outline of a fork, spoon, knife, and bowl/ plate.
