Cardinal Room is a Lower Elementary classroom for levels 1-3 on the Toledo Campus. Terie Alvarez and Deb Kelleher are the classroom’s co-teachers.

 

I am so thrilled to announce that the 3rd level will be participating in the Veggie U program for  5 weeks. This program is committed to teaching a seed-to-harvest concept for elementary students. A classroom garden kit complete with seeds, soil, flats, root view boxes, grow lights and a worm farm give the needed material for this hands-on study. These materials allow the students to see, hear, taste, feel and experience the process of planting, growing and harvesting a crop in their classroom.

At the end of the Veggie U program we will have a harvest party with the 3rd level students. We will be sending home a note with the date and time of the party. Please ask your child about Veggie U!

Here are some moments we’ve captured!

“The child should love everything that he learns, for his mental and emotional growths are linked. Whatever is presented to him must be made beautiful and clear, striking his imagination.”    ~ Maria Montessori

Montessori 201: Striking the Imagination

Presented by Lynn Fisher

touching-the-universeChildren from ages 6-12 years old ask endless questions and ponder complicated issues. Dr. Montessori concluded that the only approach to learning that would truly satisfy children at this developmental level is to give them a picture of the whole universe and the where-with-all to see how the parts of the whole are interconnected.

Join us on Tuesday, Sept. 16, at 3:45 p.m. to learn more about Montessori’s unique curriculum at the elementary level. Current Lower Elementary and kindergarten parents are encouraged to attend; parents at all levels are welcome. Child care is provided during the presentation at no charge. Please indicate in the child care sign out book that you attended the event.

Cardinal Parents,

On  Friday September 19, all of the Lower Elementary  will be going to visit the Planetarium. We will be taking a bus and departing WSM at 9:30. Please make sure you have completed the field trip permission forms so that your child can participate.
