Marlowe Mornings at Home

Our children and teachers have been very busy at home these past few weeks. It is amazing how technology has allowed us to continue customizing each child's lesson plans and working with each child individually.

Over the past few weeks, the teachers have created and posted 140 lessons to Seesaw. We have made dozens of YouTube lessons and have provided PDFs and DIY suggestions for Montessori lessons such as 3-part-cards, constructive triangles, cards and counters, stamp game, labeling the environment, maps, labeling plants and vertebrates, flags, landforms, teens boards, tens boards, movable alphabet and more!

We have been able to give reading, math, and Spanish lessons via private Zoom meetings and correct papers over Seesaw. Just this morning, two little classmates sat with their laptops open on the opposite side of the table and did their handwriting together over Zoom - just like they would in class. 

Thank you so much for working along with us to not only help your child learn to read and write, but also love learning!

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!
