Thee Buckeye Room Bulletin

Line Time (International Festival Stuff):

The controlled chaos of the International Festival practice.


Did You Know?
The Eiffel Tower was originally intended for Barcelona
The Spanish city thought the design was too ugly, so Gustave Eiffel pitched it to Paris instead, as a temporary landmark during its 1889 International Exposition. French critics didn’t like it much either though.



A Message From Mr. John (Where did I put that thing?):



Cultural Subjects:
Your children can now count to ten in 26 languages (English, Latin, Sign Language, Spanish, German, French, Greek, Japanese, Arabic with the Lebanese dialect, Italian, Russian, Romanian, Swedish, Tagalog, Hebrew, Korean, Hungarian, Irish, Kiswahili, Welsh, Dutch/Flemmish, Polish, Serbo-Croation, Cebuano, Malay, Hindi).

The Montessori classroom prides itself on having students from 3 to 6 years of age.  Here is our newest 4 year old student.


Good Bye to Miss Emily:
Miss Emily was our high school intern for the year.  She did a wonderful job fitting in with our classroom, teaching your children, and being part of Thee Buckeye Room team.  She is furthering her education at the University of Akron and majoring in Speech Therapy.  We will miss her and wish her luck with her schooling (although she does not need luck, lol).  The pics below.. one is a nice calm picture and the other is a group hug resulting in bedlam.

Three children working on the Triangle Construction Boxes found in the Sensorial Area. The Constructive Triangles are used to demonstrate that all plane geometric figures can be constructed from triangles and to prepare the child for later work in geometry.  What shapes do you see?


Two proud girls making a creation with the Number Rods and Red Rods. As you can tell it is a mirror image and was carefully and meticulously created.


He is tracing the continent of Asia. He will trace the control map and he will color the countries.


She is working on Knobbless 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. Do you notice how she is finding the relationship (height) between the green and blue cylinders?
