Peek In Our Week “”” Thee Buckeye Room “”” Week Of January 17, 2022

Buckeye Room Bulletin

Line Time:
Skeletal System- 
This week we looked at the skeletal system and if we didn’t have a skeleton we would be one messy blob on the ground (insert a flagellant sound).  We learned the skull protects our brain, the rib cage protects our lungs, and the spine keeps us sitting and standing straight.  We learned technical terms for our arms, leg and our digits which is a funny name called phalanges. We brought our life sized foam puzzle into our room.  His name is Elvis because we learned about the pelvis and it was a cool rhyming name.




A Message From Mr. John (Snowmageddon 2022/first round):



Did You Know (Humpty Dumpty)?
The story given was that a large cannon, which the was colloquially called Humpty Dumpty, was strategically placed on a wall. A shot from a Parliamentary cannon succeeded in damaging the wall beneath Humpty Dumpty, which caused the cannon to tumble to the ground.  AND…  There was never any mention that Humpty Dumpty was an egg.


Cultural Subjects:

Enrichments (Science):

The Great Skittle Run. The color of the candy is water soluble that is why the colors run. The reason the colors do not run together is because of Carnuaba Wax (found in car wax, yuck). I ate the leftovers and it wreaked havoc on my blood sugar levels. My poor A1C.


Peek In The Classroom:

Look at her focus while working on a working in Practical life. Practical Life in Montessori is a purposeful activity, develops motor control and coordination, and develops independence, concentration, and a sense of responsibility.


Here are a group of students working on one of the science bins. In this scenario the children are learning valuable social skills such as communication, sharing, and taking turns.


The students are always excited to get new works on the shelves. As you can see Elvis is getting a lot of attention his first day.


This boy is working on the puzzle map of the continent of Asia. The Puzzle maps of the world allow the child to physically see, hold, and trace sections of the world in order to identify each continent, country, and state that is represented in the puzzles. Also, the knobs on the pieces help strengthen fine motor skills.

A Montessori classroom consists of students from 3 years old to 6 years old. Do you notice a size difference?


I noticed something different about these two students. I asked if they were not wearing their glasses (not it). If they shaved their mustache (nope, not it either). OH! They got haircuts….


Third Eye Blind. Wasn’t that a 90’s band?
