Goldfinch Room is a Lower Elementary classroom for levels 1-3 on the Toledo Campus. Natalie Fisher and Tonya Reynolds are the classroom’s co-teachers.

Several second level students practiced using verbs while playing The Verb game.  A big red ball representing the verb was bounced to each person and then the student said a verb that his/her friends would have to perform.  It was a beautiful day to practice our verbs outside!

Wearing shirts that were white or decorated with a peace sign students in Lower Elementary gathered together to celebrate the International Day of Peace.  Students listened to the story If Peace Is…  After a short discussion each child wrote about peace back in their own classrooms.  Students signed their names to a large peace symbol which will be displayed in the hallway outside of the Cardinal Room.  Together we will all work towards peace in our classroom, community, and the world.

Third level grammar box work.

Second and third level students presented a play about the Universe to first level and the Bluebirds.  Picking parts, practicing their reading, and creating props were all components to getting this play ready for the presentation.  Great work second and third level friends!

“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.
