Peek In Our Week ::: Thee Buckeye Room ::: Week Of March 13, 2023

Thee Buckeye Room Bulletin

Line Time:
This week we took a look at life cycles of humans, frogs/toads, and butterflies/moths.  Humans have relatively boring life cycle compared to the butterfly/moth and toa d/frog.  As humans we are born, we live, we die. YAWWWWN.  The toad and frog start with being jelly eggs in the water.  They hatch into tadpoles and eat algae, then they turn into a froglet which has a head of a frog and a tail.  Then the tail falls off and an adult frog/toad lives the rest of its life on land.  The butterfly/moth starts as an egg.  The a caterpillar is hatched and it eats A LOT.  Then a caterpillar spins its (butterfly) chrysalis/ moth spins a cocoon.  Then a buttery comes out of its chrysalis and moth comes out of the cocoon.  I posed the question  “which came first the egg or the butterfly?”  This created some heated conversation!


Did You Know? (Cotton Candy was invented by a dentist)
It is not known whether William Morrison had an ulterior motive for inventing the soft confection, but the dentist no doubt helped ensure others in his profession continued drawing in plenty of customers. In 1897, he partnered with candy-maker John C. Wharton to develop the Cotton Candy machine (which at the time was known as “Fairy Floss”), and it’s been bringing kids cavities ever since.

She is working on the Pink Rhyming found in the Language area. This reinforces knowing 3 word, short vowel sounds (cvc).
She is working on a pre reading work called Phonics Folders. This concentrates on the (cvc) short vowels words.
She is composing numbers with the 9 tray. As you notice she is composing a number with an empty column. Composing numbers reinforces the relationship between the symbol and quantity. She can now compose numbers from 1 to 9,999.
She is working on the Number Rods which reinforces the relationship between symbols and quantity. Do you see the attempted photobomb?
