Mrs. Sutphin leads the Junior Great Books Discussion Program. A brief explanation of the program is available at Welcome to the Junior Great Books Program!
The reading list for our discussions are available below.
Parts of SpeechMontessori elementary teachers lead students through the classification of language with cleverly designed Montessori materials. An example of these materials is geometric symbols made up of a variety of shapes and colors which represent parts of speech. Students analyze sentences by placing geometric symbols for the appropriate parts of speech above words in sentences. The Nine Basic Parts of Speech and Parts of Speech further Classification may be downloaded as a reference guide for symbolizing sentences for spelling word homework.
Monarch ButterfliesThe teachers record observations as The Aquinas Montessori School students track the monarch butterfly migration each fall and spring to and from Mexico.
TulipsThe teachers record observations as The Aquinas Montessori School students track the growth of tulips as the season changes from winter to spring. They discover how temperatures, sunlight, geographic location, and other variables influence plant growth and the full array of seasonal changes that take place in the springtime.
