We discovered the traditions, weather, food eaten in certain African countries.  We learned about Madagascar where this is the only place that has lemurs.  Egypt has the Great Pyramids and the Sphinx and the Congo is the home of the Mountain Gorillas. Africa has strange and unique creatures such as the elephant, rhinoceros, hippos, giraffes, and lions.


Did you know?
The Goodyear Blimp is the official bird of Redondo Beach, California. Whaaaaaaaat?

The Goodyear Blimp is nothing short of iconic, but we wouldn’t classify it as a bird. Still, that didn’t stop Redondo Beach—a coastal city situated near the Goodyear Blimp’s home airport in Carson, California—from passing a resolution in 1983 to make the blimp its official bird.



Message From Mr. John (MSB): As I side note my buddy lives in Atlanta and found the album Stagepass on 8 Track (and bought it for 3$) a week before Michael Stanley passed.

Peek In The Classroom:

Introduction to Numerals of the Decimal System is a Montessori Math Early Childhood lesson is pretty straightforward, the goal of this lesson is to introduce the numerals of the decimal system. The child is introduced to the Montessori color coding of the numerals, 10 units equals 1 ten, 10 tens equals 1 hundred, etc. This work we play a game of exchanging the appropriate quantities.


Why is cutting with scissors important?  It is simple… It enhances independent movements of each finger and strengthens hand muscles.  Enhances bilateral coordination skills (two-handed coordination), visual and motor skills (eye-hand coordination), visual perceptual tasks (directionality), fine motor skills (separation of hand, finger dexterity), and promotes grasp pattern, focus and attention.   Phew….. that was a lot!

The Cards and Counters bring an abstract and concrete concept to this math activity. The cards and counters reinforces the knowledge that each number is made up of separate quantities. The child will see the sequence of numbers and how many separate units go to form each number.

These two handsome boys did not lose their glasses. They did not shave their mustaches. They got haircuts! The photo bomber first said he got a haircut then he told me no. The jury is still out on him.


I really have no idea what they are trying to accomplish.


More fun with matching mask and shirt.


Fancy Spring dresses.
