A New Year at Marlowe

It has been a great start to the new year! Our days have been filled with tons of music, movement, and art!
The children have quickly jumped into work-mode and selected some awesome work choices!
I'm really enjoying this sweet group of children, and I look forward to working with them this year!

Last Weeks of Summer (Dinosaurs, Spies, Princesses, & Superheroes)

Guess who knows a lot about fossils? We do! During paleontology camp, the children dug out their own dinosaur skeleton, handled REAL fossils, took home their own geodes, and more!
The following week, the children were recruited for spy training. They learned to break codes, speak foreign languages, communicate with hand signals, and evade pursuit! 
I challenge you to recognize any of these expertly disguised agents. 
On the last day of camp, the children utilized their skills to help INTERPOL find the queen's stolen diamonds. 
After their success in finding the sparkly cache, they were each sent home with a file containing information for a solo mission. 
The last week of camp was devoted to two of our favorite subjects: princesses and superheroes! We studied some of the Greek mythology that helped inspire many of our favorite superheroes and learned about life in medieval times. 
We finished the week with a BANG! The superheroes took turns throwing shields into the Tunnel of Doom and used blue blasters to destroy an enemy encampment. 
The heroes then teamed up for a game of charades. 
I hope everyone enjoys the last two weeks of summer, and I look forward to seeing you all soon!!
