Peek In Our Week ^^^ Thee Buckeye Room ^^^ Week Of September 5, 2022

Line Time:
Healthy Habits-  
This week we learned how stay healthy.  We learned that we need to wash our hands thoroughly and keep our whole bodies clean by taking shower, baths, washing our hair, and brushing our teeth.  We now know how long to wash our hands by singing the ABC’s which is a good idea but we decided it would be too difficult to sing while brushing out teeth. Another way to keep healthy is to cover our sneezes and coughs with the inside of our elbow to trap germs from flying all over the place. Another healthy habit is to get enough sleep to rest our bodies and our minds. Exercise such as running, biking, climbing, and even walking leads to a healthy body and mind.  We discovered if we eat healthy food like fruits, vegetables, protein, and limited sweets that is good for our bodies.  More on that next week.

Peek In The Classroom:

He is working on the Trinomial Cube found in the Sensorial area. The direct aim 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.
The Number Rods also help children learn the names of numbers and their sequence and learn to correctly associate between the spoken number and its quantity. Children grow to understand that each rod represents a unique quantity and that each number is represented by a single object as a whole, separate from others.
The constructive triangles are used to demonstrate that all plane geometric figures can be constructed from triangles.
The direct purpose of the Sandpaper Numbers is to teach children the symbols that represent each number, allowing them to visually identify any number from 0 – 9. In Montessori education this is specifically taught separately to counting from 0 – 9, where children often fall back on rote memorization.

Academic Enrichment aka Kindergarten:
The kindergarten students and I went over hemispheres, The Equator, and The Prime Meridian.  Actually, the hemispheres are made by The Equator and the Prime Meridian.  The North and South Hemisphere are created by The Equator and the East and West Hemisphere are created by the Prime Meridian.  We delved further and identified the Northwestern, Northeastern, Southwestern, and Southeastern Hemispheres.  That was not as daunting as one would expect.

Just a really nice picture of the kinders
