Peek In Our Week * Mr. John’s Class * Week Of November 9, 2020

Buckeye Room Bulletin

Line Time:
  We traveled back in time and discovered some fascinating things about certain dinosaurs.  We learned that dinosaurs no longer exist and that they are extinct.  We know dinosaurs exist because scientist found their bones or fossils.  From these fossil we saw that some teeth were long and sharp to tear flesh from it’s prey which belonged to meat eaters or carnivores (T Rex).  Some teeth were flat for grinding plants, leaves, and branches and belonged to plant eaters or herbivores (Brachiosauras).

Who remembers Dinosaurs?  Not the Momma!


Did You Know:
Catsup and 
Ketchup are two different spellings of the same condiment.  These words have the same meanings and are simply alternate spellings. Therefore, both are correct. Catsup is a condiment and is the less popular spelling. Ketchup is also a condiment and is the more popular spelling, which, today, is a westernized version of a condiment first introduced to European traders in the late 17th century.  Ketchup was originally a paste made from fermented fish guts (yes, it’s come a long way).

Peek In The Classroom:

This student is working on the Leaf Puzzle. The purpose of Montessori Botany puzzle is to increase their power of observation and knowledge in nature, also illustrates the component parts of a plant. It helps the child to learn basic anatomy of a leaf. Its wooden knob on each component of the leaf puzzle makes it easy to hold and can be used with many activities such as tracing or matching with cards. The knobs also strengthen her pinscher grip/fine motor skills.


She is working on the Movable Alphabet. The key purpose of the Moveable Alphabet is to prepare children for writing, reading, and spelling. The child’s use of the material progresses from single words, to phrases, and eventually to stories. In this way, the Moveable Alphabet teaches children how to symbolize their own thoughts, and begin to write creatively.


This student is working on the Nine Tray and composing numbers. She will learn to compose numbers from 1 to 9,999. This, yet again, supports the correlation between the quantity and symbol of numbers.


This girl is working on her phonics work book to support her reading and understanding of pronunciation of words.
