Peek In Our Week ,,, Mr. John’s Class ,,, Week Of January 27, 2020

Line Time:

This week we learned a bit about the internal organs.  We started with the brain which is like the computer of the body.  It tells our body how fast to breathe and how fast our heart should beat.  We discovered the lungs help us breathe and puts oxygen in our blood. Our stomach digests food, the small intestines take nutrients out of our food and large intestines gets the remaining water from indigestible food and creates waste (poop) or as I referred to a bowel movement.  The kidneys process excess water and creates urine.  The liver removes toxins from the body. The liver is my fave internal organ.  What is yours?




Did you know?
Q) What is the difference between a Cantaloupe and Muskmelon?

A) A Muskmelon is a member of the reticulatus group, characterized by a net like ribbed rind and sweet orange flesh. A Cantaloupe is a member of the cantalupensis group, named for Cantalupo, a former papal villa near Rome. This group is characterized by a rough, warty rind and sweet orange flesh.

The below picture the Muskmelon is to the left and Cantaloupe is to the right.

The Cards and Counters bring the abstract to the concrete, allowing a child to feel the units as they count. Cards and Counters is a material that consists of 10 number cards, 1-10, and 55 round, red counters, each approximately the size of a nickel. Then the appropriate amount of counters are put under the appropriate number.


The Vowel Tree is a tactile, engaging way to teach and practice decoding words. This manipulative can be used with beginning readers to more advanced readers. Originally developed as a Montessori material, the vowel tree reinforces skills for all learners, tactile learners, auditory learners, and visual learners.
