Montessori Visitor from Around the World

Monday, November 20th, 2017

Montessori Elementary 3rd Graders had a visitor from the other side of the world.  Ms Lena, who is originally from China, came to visit with Mrs. Shoemaker’s students just as they were finishing up with their studies on Asia.

Ms Lena enjoyed sharing information about her native country as well as teach the students how to say a few Chinese words, how many sounds each letter can make, and even to taste candy.

The students were very interested in the language. As one student said, “One letter can be a whole word, it just matters how it is pronounced.”



Montessori Show Their Artistic PEACE Work

Friday, September 19th, 2014

The Montessori students took time on a beautiful afternoon to go out and decorate some sidewalks. They wanted to show their “Pieces of Peace” chalk artwork to anyone that visits Lincoln School or walks by. It is amazing to see what 1st – 4th graders can design.  Also, with recognizing International Peace Day on September 21st, the students made “Pinwheels for Peace” to decorate the whole school.


Back Into The School Routine

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

That didn’t take long.  It hasn’t even been  a week and the students at Montessori Elementary are back into the swing of things.   The Montessori Method of learning allows students to work quietly on their daily contracts.  Students may be in one classroom,  but they could be working on several different things.  Some students choose to get a little more comfortable and work in their own space on the floor. While others may work quietly side-by-side at a table.   And it is always great to go to the computer lab to work on a new program or use an ipad with a new app that has been installed.  However, they have to be self-responsible to get their contract done for each day.   Anyway you look at it, learning is, and should be, FUN!

Apple Season!  And boy is it!  This year the Montessori 1st & 2nd graders visited the DeGroots Apple Orchard.  They learned the many variety of apples not only taste different, but also look and feel different.  However,  the only way to know for sure is to pick an apple and eat it !


Montessori Does Not “Horse” Around

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013

Students at Montessori Elementary took time out of their day to learn about horses and how to care for them. The Mead family brought two of their horses for Show & Tell. First, Ryan and Nicole Mead told about their horses and then the students asked several questions regarding the care for them. Maryn and Lane Mead are students with the Montessori program.
