Peek In Our Week {}{}{} Thee Buckeye Room {}{}{} Week Of January 24, 2022

Thee Buckeye Room Bulletin


Line Time:
This week we learned a bit about the internal organs.  We started with the brain which is like the computer of the body.  It tells our body how fast to breathe and how fast our heart should beat.  We discovered the lungs help us breathe and puts oxygen in our blood. Our stomach digests food, the small intestine take nutrients out of our food and large intestine gets the remaining water from indigestible food and creates waste (poop)(that word produced laughter) or as I referred to a bowel movement.  The kidneys process excess water and creates pee (more laughter) or urine.  The liver removes toxins from the body. We found out that the largest organ of the human body is the epidermis.  The liver is my fave internal organ.  What is yours?

Fun Fact:
There is no such thing as Pear Cider.  Actually, “cider” is an alcoholic beverage made from fermented apples, and only apples. Alcoholic beverages can be made from pears, but that drink is known as “Perry” (very punny).  The drink was popular in England for centuries but fell out of favor during the second half of the twentieth century. That turned around in the 1990s when the drink was rebranded as pear cider.




Peek In The Classroom:

This Kindergarten student has written numbers from 1 to 1,000 in his Kindergarten binder. Let’s see how far he gets.


He is working on the 100 board. Notice how he has gone beyond putting the numbers in order and placing random numbers in the appropriate place? The Hundred Board is useful for number recognition, number sequencing, counting, patterning, possibly skip counting (depending on your method) most of all it’s perfect for just reinforcing the understanding of numbers from one to one-hundred.
