Peek In Our Week ::: Mr. John’s Class ::: Week Of January 13, 2020

Line Time:
To honor the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. we learned a bit about his life and his accomplishments.  The students became actresses and actors as they recreated Rosa Parks making her stand on a bus in Montgomery Alabama.  The students enjoyed playing the part of the bus driver, Rosa Parks, “the mean guy”, a police officer, Martin Luther King Jr., and passengers on the bus.  We discussed our differences such as skin color, eye color, hair color, and gender.  Then we discussed how we are similar.  We talked about discrimination and segregation.  We talked about if someone with red hair wouldn’t be allowed to do art “just because” they have red hair or if anyone who had blue eyes would have to go to a different classroom with less materials, broken crayons, or no books “just because” they have blue eyes.  I had only boys fetch the chairs for the skit and brought that to the attention of the class.  We had some very sad girls…. I did let the girls take the chairs back after the skit.

We are following this student through her Sensitive Period journey. She can not get enough of Geometry. The term refers to several overlapping periods of development where a child is sensitive to a particular stimuli or type of interaction. This occurs because it is very easy for children to acquire certain abilities during a specific sensitive period. In this case Geometry.


This student is working on the 9 Tray found in the Math area. To introduce the child to the concept of the decimal system. The aim of this material is to make the child familiar with the names and relative sizes of the categories and to help the child with the difference in bulk between e.g. 6 units and 6 thousands.


These two students are working together on a continent puzzle map. The purpose of this work After the Map of the World, a child might engage with Asia, Europe, Australia, South America, North America, or Africa. These continent maps include pegged pieces to represent every country on that continent. After taking the pieces out and putting them back together, a natural control of error occurs if the pieces don’t all fit correctly! The pegged pieces also help build the fine motor (pinscher grip).
