Thee Buckeye Room Bulletin

Line Time:
Just working on International Festival stuff.  We went over the continents of North and South America.  We learned about different cultures, food, and traditions about different countries in both of these continents. 

She is so proud of her coloring skills and coloring each state the same colors as the Puzzle Map. Can I say “color” anymore times in this caption?


Did You Know? (No Melanoma Poisoning!):
Eating veggies has plenty of health benefits, but it also has cosmetic ones, according to researchers at Leeds University and the University at St. Andrews. They found that those who consumed vegetables with high levels of red and yellow pigments had a healthy yellow glow compared to those who did not. This is due to a process called “carotenoid colorization.”

Peek In The Classroom:

She is working on the Ten Board. The purpose of the Montessori Tens Board with Beads, also called Seguin Board B or Seguin Board 2 teaches a child (3-5 yo approx.) to associate the quantities and symbols from 10 to 90. Using the Tens Boards, the child explores the number names of the tens and the sequence of numbers 11–99. ******* Notice her pattern she created *******


She is working on beginning consonant blends. Research has found that good readers know the letter sounds and know how to separate and blend the sounds in a word. The ability to hear and separate individual sounds within a word (phonemic awareness), and then to blend those sounds into a word, is basic to reading and spelling.


She is working on the First Introduction To Decimals. In the Decimal System, the children first explore the golden bead materials sensorially. They learn from concrete to abstract, combining the golden beads with the abstract color coded numerals, building their association of quantity and symbol.
