Peek In Our Week “”” Thee Buckeye Room “”” Week Of November 15, 2021

Thee Buckeye Room Bulletin

Line Time:
Native Americans/Thanksgiving-  We talked about Native Americans and how Indians were named Indians.  On student informed us that Christopher Columbus landed in North America but thought he was in India.  Hence, the name.  We talked about how Native Americans were indigenous.  Then the Pilgrims came over from Europe on a ship called the Mayflower.  The pilgrims had a rough go of it at the beginning because they didn’t have enough blankets or food.  They could not just go to Target or Giant Eagle to get supplies because at that time there were just woods and wild life.

Peek In The Classroom:

This student is working on the 9 Tray. The Montessori 9 Tray is an early place value work. Your child explores and builds a physical place value chart on the floor with Golden Beads and large number cards, units through thousands.


Our intern helps a student with a lesson with the Knobless Cylinders. The purpose of these cylinders is to develop child’s fine-motor movements, concentration, hand-eye coordination, and visual perception of dimension. The material also provides experiences of seriation and gives the child basic language important in math.


Ms. Angela creates a buzz and has interested observers while presenting a lesson on the Square Chain. This activity teaches the child skip counting which is preparation for multiplication. It also indirectly prepares the child to understand squaring numbers.


These three girls are having fun sorting colored marbles. Maria Montessori’s sensorial work uses “sorting” in specific ways that work to use all of the child’s senses, one at a time, in order to refine them. The goal is to train the brain to create more organized thoughts and ways of retrieving information.
