Peek In Our Week [][][] Thee Buckeye Classroom [][][] Week Of February 14, 2022

Buckeye Room Bulletin


Line Time:
We went back in time and learned about Ancient Egypt.  We learned that the leaders or kings were called Pharaohs and when a king died they used a method to preserve them called mummification.  The pharaohs that were mummified look nothing like you see at Halloween or on cartoons.  The ancient Egyptians had a a written language called hieroglyphics which incorporated symbols such as cats, humans, and other daily objects. We also learned that the ancient Egyptians were responsible for building the Great Pyramids and The Sphinx which has the body of a lion and a head of a man. 







Did You Know? (Squirrels, Those Pesky Critters)
The American Public Power Association (APPA) says that squirrels are the most frequent cause of power outages in the U.S. The APPA even developed a data tracker called “The Squirrel Index” that analyzes the patterns and timing of squirrels’ impact on electrical power systems. Turns out, the peak times of the year for squirrel attacks are from May to June and October to November. 
Typically, the squirrels cause problems by tunneling, chewing through electrical insulation, or becoming a current path between electrical conductors. “Frankly, the number one threat experienced to date by the U.S. electrical grid is squirrels,” said John C. Inglis, the former Deputy Director of the National Security Agency, in 2015.

We had a Dental Hygienist visit and she taught us how to brush our teeth, floss, and what are good things and bad things for our teeth (what we eat).



Peek In The Classroom:

This boy is working on the sandpaper numbers. The direct purpose of the Sandpaper Numbers is to teach children the symbols that represent each number, allowing them to visually identify any number from 0 – 9. In Montessori education this is specifically taught separately to counting from 0 – 9, where children often fall back on rote memorisation. The roughness of the symbols help the child remember the number via the tactile sense when they trace the number with their finger.


He is working onbthe knobless cylinders found in the sensorial area. The purpose of these cylinders is to develop child’s fine-motor movements, concentration, hand-eye coordination, and visual perception of dimension. Here he is findingbthe relationships (diameter) of the different colors.


Ms. Angela showing students how to create “10” with colored bead bars. The purpose is to familiarize the child with all the possible number combinations that make up ten, to acquire a subconscious knowledge that no two numbers together amount to more than 18. This gives practice in getting the first basis of memorizing the essential combinations with which, when known, one can make any addition. To emphasize the fact that in addition, you will be making tens and to reinforce the knowledge that addition and multiplication are of the same concept.


This girl is working on the Movable Alphabet which is found in the Language area. She is creating 3/short vowel/cvc words.
