October at Marlowe

This month's theme was all about plants. We had fun watching a cut stem create roots, viewing a sprouted avocado pit, and growing dozens of tiny corn sprouts from a dried cob.
The day before Halloween, we cut open a pumpkin, removed the seeds, and scraped out the inside. 
We washed and dried the seeds and took some home to plant. 
Along with our plant exploration, we tried our hands at chemical reactions. 
We had so much fun watching a balloon inflate itself after mixing baking soda and vinegar together. 
We also enjoyed some quality time with our favorite farmyard friends out in our garden. 
The children had fun working in the classroom as well!
 
Not even the excitement of Halloween could keep these children from working hard. :)
Costumes made dancing extra-fun.

September at Marlowe

Our unit this month was all about the human body. We learned about our skeleton, brain, heart, lungs, stomach, germs, and how to stay healthy. 
We were visited by a mommy (who is also an ER doctor), and she talked to us about our body's many systems. She brought a sonogram machine and showed us veins, arteries, bones, and joints!
Our art projects this month involved quite a bit of drawing, cutting, and different painting techniques. 
Even though we have been having a lot of fun...
...the children have been working very hard. 
School pictures are posted! 
Check out this month's newsletter to view them and to sign up for parent-teacher conferences.
