Peek In Our Week ::: Thee Buckeye Room ::: Week Of January 23, 2023

Thee Buckeye Room Bulletin

Line Time:
Skeletal System- 
This week we looked at the skeletal system and if we didn’t have a skeleton we would be one messy blob on the ground (insert a flagellant sound).  We learned the skull protects our brain, the rib cage protects our lungs, and the spine keeps us sitting and standing straight.  We learned technical terms for our arms, leg and our digits which is a funny name called phalanges. We brought our life sized foam puzzle into our room.  His name is Elvis because we learned about the pelvis and it was a cool rhyming name.

A Message From Mr. John (The Food Thief):

Did You Know?
If you chill your onions you won’t cry when you cut them…..

There’s nothing worse than chopping and onion and bursting into tears. Not because you’re sad for the onion, but because your eyes sting from a chemical reaction. A simple solution is to stick your onion in the freezer for about 15 minutes beforehand. This will prevent the acid enzymes working properly and stop you from tears! ***** P.S. It doesn’t work. I tried it and still felt like I got pepper sprayed *****

Playing memory games is not only fun for children of all ages in the Montessori classroom, they also provide an opportunity for developmental growth. Memory games can improve brain functions and lead to better retention, attention, and concentration, all while lengthening focus. I show her a number and she walks across the room, counts the appropriate number of popsicle sticks, and returns to me. We do this for numbers from 0 to 10.
