Thee Buckeye Room Bulletin

Line Time:
Arachnids, Insects, Invertebrates-
This week we broke away from vertebrates and looked at some invertebrates. Namely, insects, arachnids, and some other invertebrates. We learned that insects have a head, thorax, abdomen, six legs, and two antennae. Some examples of insects are the ladybug, bee, butterfly, and ants. Arachnids are a bit different and have a fused head and thorax (called a cephalothorax) and an abdomen. Some arachnids include spiders, ticks, and scorpions.  

Who remember Atom Ant?

Breaking out the insect and arachnid.

Did You Know: Be nice to crows
Crows can recognize human faces and remember them for their entire lives. They’ve also been known to leave gifts for humans. My question is if you anger a crow how long do they hold a grudge?

She is learning how to write from 1 to 100.
She is working on the knobless cylinders that can be found in the sensorial area. This material strengthens fine motor skills and visual discrimination. Did you notice she discovered the relationship in regards to height?
She us working on the trinomial cube that is housed in the sensorial area. As with all Montessori sensorial materials, the cube has both a direct and an indirect purpose. The direct purpose of the binomial and trinomial cubes is for the child to practice the steps to properly disassemble and build the cube, while refining dexterity and visual acuity.

Your Child Says The Darndest Things (My dogs):

Testimonial 16

"We chose Montessori for our son at the age of 3 after looking into various programs. We felt the Montessori set up allowed him to learn at his own pace and had the ability to build his confidence based on a variety of learning options within the classroom."
~ Greg & Dina Anzevino

Testimonial 15

“We chose a Montessori school because it allows each child to learn a wide variety of subjects/skills at their own pace, and most importantly, it promotes kindness and respect for others as well as self-discipline and character. Our son’s experience at Absorbent Minds has carried over to his behavior outside of school as well–using manners, taking turns, picking up his toys, helping at meal time, etc, the school helped us get the best aba services, my chіld’ѕ therapist was able to uѕе my son’s оbѕеrvаtіоnѕ from thе initial соnѕultаtіоn tо сrеаtе a fоrmаl plan fоr thеrару . He was also encouraged to use some of the skills he mastered, such as math, to help teach his classmates. This has been an incredible help to us at home since the addition of his little brother, who he now ‘teaches’ too.”
~ George & Melissa Faluhelyi

Testimonial 14

"At age three, Montessori allowed my son to learn from the four and five year old students who were setting examples. Now five himself, he is setting the example. Montessori goes beyond the scope of preschool and individually encourages each child to want to learn more because of the influence of the older children’s’ good manners, reading, tying shoes, etc. and the younger children want to do what the older children do. The result is greater success in school and leadership skill development."
