Thee Buckeye Room Bulletin

Line Time:
Happy March Everyone!

I am so excited that spring is just around the corner. We celebrated our first week of March with celebrating wonderful Dr. Seuss.  We had the best time wearing silly socks, wearing crazy clothes and hair, wearing their favorite hat, wearing mustaches  Wow! what a fun week.



Hibernation- During hibernation, an animal’s body temperature, heart rate, breathing, and other metabolic activities slow down significantly in order to conserve energy. While resources are scarce, hibernation allows animals like bears, chipmunks, and bats to use their stored energy much more slowly. Or when Mr. John is on Christmas Break!


Migration- A seasonal movement of animals from one region to another. Such as birds flying south for the winter.  Like people who move to Florida for the winter, hehe.


Adaptation- A change or the process of change by which an organism or species becomes better suited to its environment. We did an experiment where we dipped our hands in cold water then dipped them again in cold water with butter protecting our hands


A experiment about Adaptation. We recreated blubber of animals. Hands were put in ice water (naked) and a hand was put in after in a bag of butter (blubber). The children discovered quickly the difference between cold and warm.


Did you know (It’s Impossible to Hum While You Hold Your Nose?)
You can not hum while holding your nose for the same reason you can’t exhale while holding your nose and closing your mouth—to make the humming noise you have to pass air through your larynx. You can’t do that when no air can be exhaled. I bet you tried it, didn’t you?



A Message From Mr. John (Part 6 and final installment):

Peek In The Classroom:

This boy is sweeping a mess made by another student. He was not asked to do this chore and this is a prime example of caring for the environment.


She has completed stringing beads in a pattern. The benefits of threading beads for children are to improve fine motor skills: Threading beads can help to strengthen the small muscles in children’s hands as they grasp different sized beads. The benefit of developing fine motor skills through threading beads is that it uses similar hand movements to gripping a pencil. Also, it helps to establish order to one’s sense of being. It leads to higher cognitive skills as one advances in complex pattern details.


Ms. Angela helping a student with the shoe tying work. It seems he is enjoying the lesson.


He is working on the Binomial Cube found in the sensorial area. The purpose of the material is less focused on the complex mathematics behind the material, and rather is to provide a challenge for a child’s ability to find patterns and relationships between the blocks.
