Peek In Our Week | Mr. John’s Classroom | Week Of October 22, 2018

Line Time:
Fish- We learned fish are vertebrates or they have a backbone or a spine.  They are cold blooded (their body temperature changes to the temperature around them) and have slimy and scaly skin.  The unique thing about fish is that some fish are born alive and some fish are born with jelly eggs.  Some examples of fish are Trout, Bass, Sharks, and Swordfish.  And one more important point is that fish live in water, and many people decide to have fishes for pets since they’re easy to maintain, and you can even get an aquarium and fish decor for it.


I wish I was a fish……


Cultural Subjects:
Your children can now count to ten in 10 languages (English, Latin, Sign Language, Spanish, German, French, Japanese, Greek, Arabic with the Lebanese Dialect, Italian, and Russian)


Peek In Our Classroom:

This boy is working with the Knobbless Cylinders found in the Sensorial Area. The purpose of these cylinders is to develop child’s fine-motor movements, concentration, hand-eye coordination, and visual perception of dimension. The material also provides experiences of basic language important in math. *** Notice he found a relationship of height between three color/boxes ***


Same child, same work, different relationship that he discovered which is diameter of the cylinders. Do you notice how he draws a crowd? Student observing other students working is a big part of the Montessori Classroom.


She is practicing different strokes that lead to writing in cursive. Research suggests that printing letters and writing in cursive activate different parts of the brain. Learning cursive is good for children’s fine motor skills, and writing in longhand generally helps students retain more information and generate more ideas.


The Montessori 9 Tray Layout is an early place value work. Your child explores and builds a physical place value chart on the floor with Golden Beads and large number cards, units through thousands. This layout will help your child to visualize and develop an understanding of place value, order of numbers and concentration.
