Bluebird Room is a Lower Elementary classroom for levels 1-3 on the Toledo Campus. Molly Bernhardt and Kyrie Lee are the classroom’s co-teachers.

Sylvania Historical Village

The Bluebird class took a November day trip to Sylvania Historical Village.  Greeted by a beautiful fall day, the children set off to learn about the Native Americans of our area and the Pioneers.  We traveled through the village, touring a trading post, a one-room schoolhouse, an authentic log cabin, a blacksmith shop, and a post office/train depot.

Third Level Teachers

Some of the third level have completed their Montessori language materials and are beginning to teach lessons to others.  Teaching previously learned concepts to others allows them to commit these skills to long term memory.  They prepared and presented small group lessons to kindergarten students!  They were amazing.  I hope they don’t put us out of a job!

Super Duck!

How proud the Bluebird room is of Ajani!  The class enjoyed a Children’s Theater Workshop play at the Collingwood Arts center.  Ajani played the part of a bully duck and a swan king.  After learning his script and practicing for several months, the hard work was evident in his performance.  Ajani, the way you projected your voice and the expression you used were super…Super Duck!  Thank you to Arnyka for inviting us all.  It was enjoyed by all.
