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.

We are immersing ourselves in the Cardinal classroom and how respectable and responsible our children are growing together. We get to experience their honest, loving, and generous exchanges with each other, thus creating a peaceful environment.

We begin each morning with a greeting, quiet, and observant, as we witness our friends walking in to settle into their work. Ask your children to be EFFICIENT at home, a word we are learning to use as we complete the work cycle.

Here’s a glimpse of wonderful moments we’ve captured.

Gravity is a natural phenomenon by which objects that mass attract each other.

Gravity is a natural phenomenon by which objects that have mass attract (pull towards) each other.


The Earth provides a strong gravitational force to everything around us.



Level 2 and Level 3 are peer mentoring their new 1st level friends.











The Great Lesson

If the idea of the universe is presented to the child in the right way, it will do more for him than just arouse his interest, for it will create in him admiration and wonder, a feeling loftier than any interest and more satisfying. ~ Maria Montessori

Lower Elementary students started the new school year with the Great Lesson this morning. It provides students with a “big picture” of the world and life and sparks their imagination to contemplate not only the past, but the future.

What did your child learn in the Great Lesson today?
