February at Marlowe

We had so much fun this month celebrating Valentine's Day and learning about the founding of our country (in honor of Presidents' Day). 
We got to watch our mushrooms sprout.
Ms. Mary taught us about tempo and meter and how to conduct, and she shared many patriotic songs.
We also had a dentist visit our class. The hygienists talked about good food choices and the importance of brushing and flossing every tooth every day. 
The children learned that they needed to brush twice a day for two minutes 
(the time it takes them to sing the ABCs two times).
The children also worked hard on their lessons all month. 
Don't forget to sign up for parent-teacher conferences!

January at Marlowe

We learned all about the Arctic and Antarctic this month! 
We made snowman, penguin, and polar bear crafts, and we learned how to cut snowflakes. 
Even though paper snowflakes are beautiful on their own, we decide to make them even more spectacular by covering them with salt crystals. We made a salt solution and dipped the snowflakes in it. Once the paper dried and the water evaporated, salt crystals were left behind!
We also started growing edible mushrooms in the classroom earlier this week. 
We can't wait to see them sprout!
We're looking forward to another fun month!
