Peek In Our Week /\/\ Thee Buckeye Room /\/\ Week Of February 20, 2023

Thee Buckeye Room Bulletin

Line Time:
This week we went back in time and took a look at Ancient Greece and talked about Greek Mythology. The Greek Gods hung out on Mt. Olympus and we learned the King of all Gods was Zeus and if you made him angry he had a lightning bolt in his hand that he would throw at you.  Zeus had a wife named Hera and she was the Goddess of Marriage.  If you were a sailor you dare not make Poseidon angry because he was the the God of the Seas and held a trident (a fork like spear) in his hand.  Zeus had a brother that he sent to the under world and that God was named Hades.  Hades had a pet that was a three headed dog named Cerberus.  We also learned about Pan and Medusa.

Did you know (Barbie):
Barbie’s full name is Barbara Millicent Roberts. Barbie was named after Ruth Handler’s daughter, Barbara, and Ken after her son, Kenneth. She is from (fictional) Willows, Wisconsin, where she attended high school.

Punk/Goth Barbies, hehe

Peek In The Classroom:

She is working on a Math material called the addition Strip Board. Montessori addition strip board teaches children the mathematical concept of adding numerals 1 to 9 more abstractly as it leads the child through all the combinations in addition. There are no combinations beyond 9+9.
This is an extension with the aim of coordination. The children have been walking the maze all year but on this day they discovered a new twist. A beanbag on their head. Now they have to be extra cautious so the beanbag does not fall off their heads. They came up with this all on their own.
This boy is learning the symbols (numbers) and the quantity (beads) and their relationship. See how meticulous he is placing the beads neatly in order?
She is working on a phonics workbook to support her reading.
