Peek In Our Week ”’ Thee Buckeye Room ”’ Week Of May 8, 2023

Thee Buckeye Room Bulletin

Line Time:
Solar System- 
Put on your space suit and get ready to explore our solar system.  We started with discussing the planets nearer the sun then worked our way to the furthest reaches of our solar system.  Mercury is our first planet and is the closest to the sun.  Venus is the second planet.  Even though it is further away from the sun than Mercury it is the hottest planet in our solar system.  The third planet is near and dear to our hearts.  It is the planet earth.  It is the only planet in our solar system that has life.  The next planet is Mars and is known as the red planet.  The next planet is the biggest planet in our solar system and has a big red storm that has been raging for centuries.  That planet is Jupiter.  Saturn is the next planet and has really cool ring around it that are pieces of rock and ice.  Uranus is next and it spins up and down instead of side to side like all the other planets.  Neptune is the last planet in our solar system.  I did not forget about Pluto.  Oh! Poor Pluto.  Pluto was once a planet but now has been demoted to a dwarf planet.   As a side note learned that most planets were named after Roman Gods and Goddesses. 

Did You Know? (More They Might Be Giants):
They Might Be Giants has a really cool children’s CD about science and a parent gave it to me decades ago.  Also, a few of their songs were featured in Tiny Toons. I saw these guys circa 1990 during the Flood Tour.  They were a fun alternative band! Remember Malcolm In the Middle?  The theme song “You’re Not The Boss of Me” ? YEP… You got it.  LOL

Peek In The Classroom:

Following this student’s progress in Math he is now composing numbers from 11 to 99. Do you see the pattern he discovered?
She is taking a break and enjoys hearing the other student read.
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. This layout will help your child to visualize and develop an understanding of place value, order of numbers, and concentration.
The Sandpaper Letters allow the child to understand writing before they can hold a pencil. The Child uses three of the five senses; tactile, auditory, and sight to learn the sound and formation of each letter.
