Peek In Our Week ## Mr. John’s Class/Buckeye Room ## Week Of September 6, 2021

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.




A Message From Mr. John (Whatcha saying Willis):



Fun Fact:
Pigs Don’t Sweat-  If someone tells you they’re “sweating like a pig” you might want to point out to them (if you’re that sort of person) that if they were being biologically accurate, that would mean they were not sweating at all. Swine are born without sweat glands, so when they need to cool off, their only option tends to be to find a cool puddle of mud in which they can roll around.

He is in Hog Heaven, Hehe. I crack myself up!


Cultural Subjects:
Your children can now count to ten in 6 languages (English, Latin, Sign Language, Spanish, German, French)  Also, I will be posing a video with the language added for that week.   Oh ya, take a gander at the video below.


Know Your Languages:


Peek In The Classroom:

The short vowel sound for a is usually taught first because once children know the sound for the letter ‘a’ and a few other consonants such as m, s, t then they can start ‘reading’ and ‘spelling’ words. Teach to mastery. … This makes it less likely they will confuse short vowel sounds.


She is working on the introduction of the decimal system. The purpose is to introduce the child to the concept of the decimal system and to make the child familiar with the names and relative sizes of the categories. Also! To help the child with the difference in bulk between e.g. 6 units and 6 thousands


The Montessori Teen Board is a great way to introduce the concept of teens to a child. Not only children see how tens and ones are being build to make teens, but they are also physically building teens themselves. Have the child slide a wooden number two on top of a ten board, making twelve.


This boy is developing his fine motor skills by working with putting nuts on bolts. Fine motor skills are those that involve a refined use of the small muscles which control the hand, fingers and thumb. With the development of these skills, a child is able to complete important tasks such as writing, feeding oneself, buttoning and zippering.

Academic Enrichment aka Kindergarten:
Hemispheres-  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.

Two of the Kindergarten students were absent but where are they. We don’t know.
