I hope that you will take the time if possible to show your children our planets.  Over the next few weeks, FIVE of our planets will be visible in the pre-dawn sky, weather permitting.  You will be able to see Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Mars, and Jupiter without a telescope from January 20-Feb 20.  Two stars ( Antares and Spica) will  also be visible in this alignment!

Everyone watched a short video which showed Mr. King at the White House delivering his speech.  Then, we all made a craft with some words he used in his speech and towards those he came in contact with.

10 days of giving: Day 4 http://freedommontessori.org/2015/12/11/10-days-of-giving-day-4/ http://freedommontessori.org/2015/12/11/10-days-of-giving-day-4/#comments Fri, 11 Dec 2015 19:20:19 +0000 http://freedommontessori.org/?p=3352 Read more]]> All of the primary classes went for a walk together today.  We found a lady named Miss. Mary Anne, and Aiden gave his gift to her.  She was thrilled to open it in front of the students.  Mary Anne was pleased to have gum for a present and told us that she was a chorus teacher for over 20 years.  Everyone thought that was a long time and Madisyn said that was amazing!  We sang the first verse of Away in a Manger and Happy Birthday Jesus!

Miss Mary Anne wished that we would all be able to have things this Christmas that don’t cost money including:

  1. Health
  2. Happiness
  3. A loving family
  4. World peace

Along our walk, we gathered together around Jimmy John’s, and Javien noticed a lady in the window waving.  We asked her to come outside with us and Javien gave his gift to her.  Her name was Miss Janice, and she was elated to have all of our friends, especially Javien, wish her a Merry Christmas.  She will be able to stay warm this Winter with her new coffee cup and soft gloves.  :)

Everyone had the opportunity to go fishing.  We had a fishing rod with a magnet and two fish with paper clip mouths.

We practiced counting the 2 fish, the 5 loaves of bread and the 12 baskets/disciples.

We worked on making a turkey.  We fed the turkey (a paper bag) lot of corn (stuffing) to become nice and fat.  We also drew with markers on a coffee filter and used a pipette with water to spread the marks.  Our coffee filters were folded with some newspaper to become the tail feathers of the turkey.  Everyone was proud of their hard work.

We walked to Fountain Park and noticed that it has not been working lately.  Today, we found out that mud infiltrated the system, and workers were trying to find out how.  SaRiyah stated that all you have to do is “click” to turn the water back on.

We showed everyone where the ice skating park is going to be since we went ice skating during class on Monday.  We skated to the Skaters Waltz.
