A Peek at Our Week | Elementary | Week of October 23

This week our “Peek” was written by two of our students! These students read our previous blogs, took pictures around the room, and filled in a blog template. The students did some editing together and with a teacher so what you will read below is their final product. There are still some misspelled words in their final product, but in a Montessori classroom we focus on the process, instead of the end result. Dr. Montessori believed when we put all of the emphasis on the final product, we devalue everything leading up to that point. This can discourage repetition which will make mastery of a skill difficult. The purpose of the students writing the blog is to provide you with a glimpse into the room through their eyes, to provide them with practice of real world skills, and to give them a deeper understanding of the materials in the room. We hope you enjoy their work!

“A Peek at Our Week” by Trevor (Third Grade) and Anelise (Second Grade)

Our week has been good! Every student has to complete follow up work, also a math, langueage, and a cultrol! We have 13 kids and 2 teachers. Third grade lessons are mostly all of the triangle boxes. Second grade lessons are sudtracshonging angles. The ferst grade lessons is a dinosaur research. The fourth grade lessons is mickroscope lessons.

Third graders are doing Equivalency of the Constructive Triangles. We had to put shapes together and find that they are equivalent. We had to form everything into a big parallelagram.
These students are doing the Naberhood Map. You are using the felt pieces to create a naberhood. Then you create a map key. Map keys are included in the Tallmadge Circle activities.
Most third graders know the Racks and Tubes, to work on division equations. You use a board and beads to solve the equation. Then you record your answers.
This is a fourth grader. He is working on the Mickroscope lessons. He is doing a mickroscope test. If you complete the test you get a mickroscope lisens.
