Peek In Our Week @@ Buckeye Room @@ Week Of October 4, 2021

The Buckeye Room Bulletin

Line Time:
Reptiles- This week we learned about reptiles and what makes a reptile a reptile.  Reptiles are vertebrates, cold blooded (body temperature changes to the temperature around them), they are born from hard shelled eggs and their skin is dry, with scales.  Some examples of reptiles are snakes, turtles, and lizards.  Below was my childhood Saturday TV entertainment (notice how it is in black and white?).

Did You Know?
Does hot water freeze faster than cold water? This is known as the Mpemba effect. Evaporation is the strongest candidate to explain the Mpemba effect. As hot water is placed in an open container the water begins to cool, the overall mass decreases as some of the water evaporates. With less water to freeze, the process can take less time.  My thoughts is that it is a misnomer due to less ice is produced.  But who am I to say?



October Birthdays:

Peek In The Classroom:

This girl is working on the Ten Board which is a math material. These full size Séguin tens boards teach the child the number names, symbols and sequence from 10 to 99 and further strengthens the relationship between quantity and symbol.


A group of children are working on puzzle maps. The aim of the Puzzle Maps allow the child to physically see, hold, and trace sections of the world in order to identify each continent, country, and state that is represented in the puzzles. The knobs on each piece help strengthen fine motor skills.


She is working on a math material called The Nine Tray. The 9 Tray is an important lesson in the sequence of the golden bead work. It entails an elaborate set up, as well as mastery of building numbers, using unit beads, ten bars, hundred squares and thousand cubes. Allowing the children to concretely see the growth of numbers through the hierarchy of the decimal system it is a wonderful introduction to place value and organization of the ‘Golden Bead’ materials.


He was so proud.
