Peek In Our Week ^^^ Mr. John’s Classroom ^^^ Week Of December 9, 2019

Line Time:
We spent the majority of line time practicing for the Christmas Show.  It was a rockin time!  But I could not find the eggnog, or cookies for Santa.  Oh wait…. Score !!!!!!!!


Speaking Of Eggnog (which I love by the way):
While culinary historians debate its exact lineage, most agree 
eggnog originated from the early medieval British drink called posset, which was made with hot milk that was curdled with wine or ale and flavored with spices. In the Middle Ages, posset was used as a cold and flu remedy.  Now I want to try posset even if it looks like it is a gelatnis solid.






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:

She has almost completed the fish puzzle which she will learn the different parts of the fish. Also, the little white knobs on the pieces, tracing the puzzle parts, and coloring the traced pieces will help her fine motor skills.


We are following this student through her trek in a Sensitive Period. This is when she has an insatiable attraction to a particular area/subject or particular work in the classroom. She desires to work with Geometric Shapes. Here she has mastered the small hexagon box.


Stretttttcccchhh. This girl is working on the Pink Tower and Brown Stair. She is actually doing an extension of the work. She wanted to know if the Brown Stair is placed on end if it will be the same height as the Pink Tower. Obviously, the Brown Stair is taller than the Pink Tower. Her question is answered.


The cube is made up of a number of colored blocks, which fit together in a specific way. Assembling it uses a child’s fine-motor skills and requires the ability to discriminate between the blocks based on multiple characteristics. Unlike Montessori’s iconic pink tower, for example, the trinomial cube does not isolate only one quality. Some blocks have one color, others have two. Some blocks are cubes, while others are rectangular prisms. While the pink tower blocks vary only in size, the trinomial cube’s blocks vary in color, size, and shape! This makes the trinomial cube a more complex sensorial material, and it requires organized thinking to master.
