LE Khalsa Classroom Website


Replicating what happens in our classrooms is not something we can achieve during this period. Our goal is to work in collaboration with families to keep alive the culture of learning that is unique to Montessori and provides families with support and activities that match the developmental needs and characteristics of the child.


6-9 Year Old Specific Needs and Characteristics

❖ Respect the stage of development - many Lower Elementary students are at a “concrete level” and require the Montessori materials to complete certain task. Teachers will guide you regarding what works make sense for your child

❖ Develop ideas that allow the opportunity for Lower Elementary students to build from their interests. Examples may include projects, journals, creative writing, geometry constructions, Practical Life at home

❖Encourage socialization. Lower Elementary students are extremely social; they will need to feel connected to their friends 


The Uninterrupted Work Cycle 

Establishing a routine that works for your family is an essential first step to creating a successful learning environment at home. Children are very familiar with this framework from school. In a Montessori classroom, children are given large blocks of time in order to explore their work deeply. This contributes directly to the development of concentration and provides opportunities to collaborate and problem-solve. It is the framework that fosters child-centred as opposed to teacher-directed learning.

Older Writing Prompts  





Describe a place you like to go to be alone. What does this place look like? Why is this the place you choose to go to for quiet? How does it make you feel to be in this place? Write about it.


Make a list of 30 things that make you happy! For more fun, cut them out and alphabetize them. 


Day I - Choose a place to sit. Close your eyes and listen. Keep listening until you hear at least 5 sounds. What did you hear? Write what sounds you heard. Then spend some time looking and describing where and how each sound was created. 

For eg: I hear a bird chirping. The chirp sounded like sweet singing to my ears. The bird was sitting on a low branch of a tree in my backyard. This small bird has brown feathers and a red breast. It flits from branch to branch. 

For brainstorming, you can draw 3 boxes on a page. In each box write one sound you heard. Under the sound, write a few details of where and how this sound was heard.


last week: Write down a story about your favorite thing from the weekend

When you go outside which of your senses are you most thankful for having? (sight, touch, taste, hearing) What do you experience outside when using this sense? Explain why you are most thankful for this sense.


Imagine you are sitting peacefully at the top of a mountain. You are looking down on your city... describe all the things you see.


Day 2 - Spring is around us. Go outside to observe nature. What do you smell, touch, see or hear? Write about it. You can also add your feelings about this time of the year.

For brainstorming make four boxes on a page. In each write one sense that you are using to observe nature. Then write details about spring you notice using that sense. 


last week: Call a relative relative and ask them to tell you a story from their childhood

Choose a natural object that you can see when you look out a window and write about it. Describe how it looks and moves. Write about how you think it might sound and feel.


Write a story from the perspective of a rabit going down it's hole. What does the rabbit experience?


Day 3 - Share a recipe you cooked this week/last week. How was your experience making it? Who did you share it with? How did each person experience the taste?


last week: Write a letter to someone at school, email a picture of it to your teacher.


Would you rather live in a secret forest or a desert island? Give reasons for your answer. What would you do and see in your chosen biome? You could write a story about what your life might be like in one of these places.  Think about what you already know about forests and deserts.


Write a poem about something you experienced yesterday. Start with: Yesterday, yesterday...


Day 4 - Write about one person or pet in your family. Describe this person or pet first. Then tell us why you enjoy them.


last week: sit in silence for 10 minutes and write down every sound you hear

Cut and paste a few pictures you find beautiful in a magazine to make a collage. Write 3 sentences about your finds. 


Day 5 - Now that you have been away from your class for a while, what are the three things/experiences you miss most? Why?

For brainstorming, make three boxes on a page and write each thing/experience you miss in one box. Don't forget to write all the reasons you miss it. 


last week: make a video of you telling a story or reading a book

50th Anniversary of Earth Day, April 22, 2020! Here are some ideas of how to celebrate!

*******Plant the seeds you received in your cubby bag somewehere special in your yard or house. Take a picture and email to your teacher to share with the school!********

Turn into artists and explorers to celebrate Earth Day.  NatGeo is asking parents to create safari scenes, display them where others can see, then encourage others in your community to participate (at a safe distance!) so everyone can spot animals on their personal safari. Get the details, then show us what your family did. #NatGeoEarthDayAtHome

Make a Homemade Hummingbird Feeder          Printable Project Here          

Earth Day is all about protecting the planet. For kids, that often means protecting wildlife. Start by meeting some amazing animals that need your help, along with tips on how to save some of them.

These tips will show how your family can work together to help protect the planet from things like habitat destructionpollution, and declining biodiversity.
