Peek Into Our Week !!! Thee Buckeye Room !!! Week Of January 22, 2024

The Buckeye Bulletin

Line Time:
Skeletal System- 
(Last Week)This week we looked at the skeletal system and if we didn’t have a skeleton we would be one messy blob on the ground (insert a flagellant sound).  We learned the skull protects our brain, the rib cage protects our lungs, and the spine keeps us sitting and standing straight.  We learned technical terms for our arms, leg and our digits which is a funny name called phalanges. We brought our life sized foam puzzle into our room.  His name is Elvis because we learned about the pelvis and it was a cool rhyming name.

This week we learned a bit about the internal organs.  We started with the brain which is like the computer of the body.  It tells our body how fast to breathe and how fast our heart should beat.  We discovered the lungs help us breathe and puts oxygen in our blood. Our stomach digests food, the small intestine take nutrients out of our food and large intestine gets the remaining water from indigestible food and creates waste (poop)(that word produced laughter) or as I referred to a bowel movement.  The kidneys process excess water and creates pee (more laughter) or urine.  The liver removes toxins from the body. We found out that the largest organ of the human body is the epidermis.  The liver is my fave internal organ.  What is yours?

Peek In The Classroom:

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.
They traced Elvis and are labeling his bones.
We are giving students going in kindergarten and first grade the Albanesi Assessment. This assessment is a link between Montessori and traditional assessments.
Animal puzzles are wonderful for hand-eye coordination and for developing the fine motor muscles of the hand. These puzzles provide a hands-on opportunity for a child to learn the anatomical parts of an animal. Tracing and labeling the parts are a popular activity.
