Peek In Our Week “”” Mr. John’s Class “”” Week Of December 16, 2019

Line Time:
We learned a little bit about family since we are going to be spending a lot more time with family during the holiday season (be it good or be it bad). 



Saying Goodbye:


We are saying good bye to this guy due to his family moving. See you later!!!!!!!! Noticed how he is doing the “O” in O-H….. I O.




What is your favorite Christmas song (1970 to present):
My favorites are Fairy tale of NYC by The Pogues,  2,000 Miles by Pretenders, and Do They Know It’s Christmas by Band Aid. 




Cultural Subjects:
Your children can now count to ten in 17 languages (English, Latin, Sign Language, Spanish, German, French, Greek, Japanese, Arabic with the Lebanese dialect, Italian, Russian, Romanian, Swedish, Tagalog, Hebrew, Korean, Hungarian).



Peek In The Classroom:

When the student is around three or four years of age, depending on how quickly the child has grasped the concept of counting to 100, and also helping them to understand number order. They are introduced to the 100 board. This work is more of an abstract work. The child learns to place the tiles in numeric order and develops an understanding of the concept of patterns.


We have been following this student for about a month tracking her sensitive period with Geometry. She still has a strong interest in Geography. This interest can last a few months or a week. We will see how far she will go in this sensitive period.


This student is working on the 3 part cards in the language area. They focus on three letter/short vowel sounds. Three part cards are the perfect introduction to any new set of vocabulary, and can be found in more than one area of the Montessori classroom.


These two girls are working on the Vowel Tree. The vowel tree is a fun activity to make and play with. This is another fun way to practice short vowel, and letter sounds. They are also practicing handwriting by copy writing the words they created.
