Peek In Our Week – Mr. John’s Class – Week Of January 25, 2021

Buckeye Room Bulletin


Line Time:
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 intestines take nutrients out of our food and large intestines 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?

Fun Fact:
A gallon of gasoline (about 4 liters) contains about 31,000 calories.  How is this even pertinent? This was to be a rhetorical question but if anyone has a good answer please let me know… Braggin Rights!


Bragging rights for the correct answer of last week’s question:
Kristen S. came up with the answer of 8.96 billion paper clips are produced yearly.  Her formula was 20m x 16 x 28


Peek In The Classroom:

She is working on the addition strip board. The purpose teaches preschoolers and kindergartners the mathematical concept of adding numerals one through nine more abstractly and this is a great way to introduce a child to the concept of combining numbers, to make new numbers.


This boy is working on the introduction to decimals. The aim is pretty straightforward, the goal of this lesson is to introduce the numerals of the decimal system. The child is introduced to the Montessori color coding of the numerals and quantity of units, tens, hundreds, and thousands.


This girl is working on a Practical Life work of using a screwdriver and an allen wrench (hex key wrench) to tighten bolts. This will strengthen her fine motor skills and look at the focus she has working on this material.


This student is working on the Pink Tower and the Brown Stair which the aim to refine a child’s visual sense by discriminating differences in dimension. As a child starts taking each cube or rectangular prism (starting from the smallest) to a mat, they can feel the weight and progression of its size. She has found, all on her own, the relationship in a different way.
