Peek In Our Week ^^^ Thee Buckeye Room ^^^ Week Of October 2, 2023

Thee Buckeye Bulletin

Line Time:
This past week we learned about Reptiles.  Reptiles are vertebrates (have a spine or backbone), cold blooded (their body temperature changes with the surrounding temperature), have dry scaly skin, hatched from hard shell eggs.  Examples of reptiles are turtles, snakes, alligators, and lizards. We suspect that dinosaurs may have been reptiles.

Godzilla and son may have been reptiles.

Did you know?
When it comes to the alphabet everyone knows that “Z” is the last letter, but did you know it wasn’t the last letter to be added? Although located in the first half of the ABCs, “J” is a latecomer and was the 26th of the current set of letters to be added.

And it is all good between them.

Last week trivia answer: Mark Mothersbaugh of Devo went to Woodridge High School.

He just completed the Cards and Counters. The Cards and Counters reinforces the knowledge that each number is made up of separate quantities. The child will see the sequence of numbers and how many separate units go to form each number. Great practice to show the odd and even numbers as well.
She is working on the Pink Rhyming work. Rhyming skills should be practiced continuously from the Phonemic Awareness level all the way through a child’s reading career.  This is the Pink Level individual rhyming work. This work supports the child’s developing understanding of spelling patterns.  
This student is working on the Binomial Cube found in the Sensorial area. The direct aim of this binomial cube is for the kids to correctly build the cube within the box while using and developing visual acuity and dexterity. The indirect aim of the Montessori Binomial Cube is to prepare the child to learn advanced algebraic concepts. In the background a student is putting 40 books back in order.
