Peek In Our Week “”” Mr. John’s Class “”” Week Of February 10, 2020

Line Time:
Presidents Of The United States Of America (Wasn’t that a 90’s band? Gunna eat a lot of peaches!) We first learned about George Washington and how he was our first president and was the General of the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. Our 16th President, Abraham Lincoln came from a poor family,  freed the slaves and was president during the Civil War.  We were introduced to Franklin D. Roosevelt and how he was president during World War II and how John F. Kennedy fought for equal rights.  We then learned that Donald Trump was current president. The children were taught that the president’s wives are called the first lady and that the president lives in the white house in Washington DC, and flies on a jet called Air Force 1.  We discussed what responsibilities the President has.  The children came up with keeping us safe, keeping the world safe, and running the country. 


February Birthdays:
The Montessori classroom is comprised of 3 year old to 6 year old students.  Here are our newest 4 old student. 



Which do you prefer?
Salad dressing (Miracle Whip) or Mayonnaise?  I am in the Miracle Whip camp.  In fact, my parents told me when I was growing up Miracle Whip was mayonnaise.

Peek In The Classroom:

The colored bead stair is a quintessential Montessori math material because it has so many different mathematical benefits. The youngest child in primary all the way through upper elementary learns one-to-one correspondence, connecting quantity to symbol, square roots and cubes, basic operations, and complex algebraic equations.


A lot is going on here… A student is working with the color tablet work, a student is observing him work on the color tablets. and a child is rolling the her rug. All part of a Montessori classroom scene.


Two kindergarten students working on their World Fair project (coloring their maps of the country they chose).


This child found the relationship between these two materials. The relationship of smallest to biggest for these two works. This is called an extension. Extensions are activities that are introduced after the initial presentation with a material, in order to encourage the child to re-visit the material and solidify the skills and/or concepts it’s designed to provide.
