Our blog for this year will be written by our Weekly Rock Star, a student selected by the students each week out of either the upper elementary or the lower elementary.

Owen - age 8

Blossoming Hill Montessori is a place where I get to move around a lot and not have to sit at a desk all day. I like to move around a lot and BHM is not boring. I like getting to be WRS which is weekly rock star. One student is selected every week. You get to bring in special items from home to share, everyone writes you a letter and you get to write this blog.

I am really enjoying playing gaga ball. I like playing with my friends. I play a video game at home called Goat Simulator, it’s super fun.

If I were on a deserted island I would get a free tan. (Yes, I have a sense of humor, which they appreciate here.)

Leilani - age 10

Blossoming Hill Montessori is a place where we get to learn a lot of different things. The people here are nice and it makes it easy to make friends. I really like how we get to work both together and independently in the classroom.

 

Some of my other interests are tennis, guitar and math and reading. I have been playing tennis since I was two. It teaches me to be active, keep fit and how to focus, since I always have to keep my eye on the ball. I’ve competed in tournaments and classes.

 

Guitar is another interest of mine. I’ve been playing since I was four. I think the guitar is beautiful and I enjoy making new sounds on it. Music brings peace and joy into the world. I also get to write songs.

 

Math and reading are other pastimes I enjoy. I like taking timed tests for math. BHM helped me overcome my fear of them. I really find the Spirit Animal book series and the Five Kingdoms book series interesting.

Parker - age 6

What I like about Blossoming Hill Montessori is my teacher, Teresa. I like how I can learn different things. I enjoy swinging with my friends.

I also get to use materials from the spatial shelves sometimes, like pattern blocks which are really fun. When I get to do different things it is fun and makes me happy. We also get to do a lot of art here too and that is fun.

Gavin - age 8

I really enjoy Teresa my teacher and my friends here at Blossoming Hill Montessori. I play a lot at recess with my friends. We play soccer, ball tag, or sometimes we make up games.

Other things I like to do besides playing with friends are riding my bike and swimming. Doing things where I am moving makes me feel good. And it is fun!!

Jack - age 11

The teachers and people at Blossoming Hill are very nice. Everyone helps each other. I also enjoy Angelo’s cooking. My favorite is quinoa pizza bites.

I play a lot of sports in my free time. I compete in baseball, which helps me be in a quiet place. I have to concentrate to hit the ball. I also do competitive swimming which pushes me beyond my limits even though I feel very natural in water. I particularly like the breaststroke.

I also read. Currently I am reading the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. It’s funny and when I focus on the book it helps me not focus on my problems as much.
