Peek In Our Week === Thee Buckeye Room === Week Of October 31, 2022

Thee Buckeye Room Bulletin

Line Time:
Arachnids, Insects, Invertebrates-
This week we broke away from vertebrates and looked at some invertebrates. Namely, insects, arachnids, and some other invertebrates. We learned that insects have a head, thorax, abdomen, six legs, and two antennae. Some examples of insects are the ladybug, bee, butterfly, and ants. Arachnids are a bit different and have a fused head and thorax (called a cephalothorax) and an abdomen. Some arachnids include spiders, ticks, and scorpions.  

The ant from The Ant and the Aardvark.

Did You Know? (What is that dot?)
So why is there a dot above the lowercase i and j? This diacritical mark is also called a tittle and it exists to help the reader easily distinguish them from other letterforms.

I present to you the tittle.

Peek In The Classroom:

There has been an influx of interest in creating different designs with the Red Rods and Number Rods. This is called an extension.
Proud students displaying their extension/creation with said Red Rods, Number Rods, and other materials. In a Montessori environment, an “extension” is when a child takes a known material or activity and explores it in a new way. Sometimes this includes combining materials to make new connections and discoveries.
This boy is working on his skills with the consonant blends of ch, sh, and th.
She is mastering composing numbers using the Ten board. This reinforces the correlation between quantity and symbol from 11 to 99.
He is working on the Stamp Game. The Stamp Game is a Montessori maths material used by an individual child to practice the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. It is a wonderfully simple but effective learning from home option that, once presented to your child correctly, they can work on independently.
She is working on the Trinomial Cube found in the Sensorial area. The direct purpose of the binomial and trinomial cubes is for the child to practice the steps to properly disassemble and build the cube, while refining dexterity and visual acuity.
