December at Marlowe

We were so very busy growing and learning this past month!
We were visited by several Mystery Readers.
We decorated some delicious cookies with our Secret Chef.
We also made several fun art projects!
Daddies (and other special people) came for a morning visit.
And, we finished the month with Pajama Day -- complete with a story-time surprise. 
 Hope you all have had a wonderful break, and I look forward to seeing you in the new year!

Puppets and Pilgrims

What a great month! We learned all about pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving.
We made several hand puppets -- first, we made a turkey...
...and then, Johnny Appleseed.

We also made a giant pot of Stone Soup.
Well seasoned and delicious. Yum!

Little Ballerinas and Cooking Fun!

Even though we have song and dance during the school day, we LOVE our Thursday pre-ballet class!
We also love having secret chefs come to visit! 
This month we made white-chocolate covered popcorn with sprinkles.
 The children even got to decorate their bag before stuffing it with the yummy treat.

Artwork for Children's Healthcare

Last Thursday and Friday, sixteen little ones put quite some time and effort into making the perfect get well card. Thank you to all the students who generously donated their artwork to cheer up the patients at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.

Petting Zoo Fun

We had a petting zoo come to visit last week! We love this family farm's gentle animals and have had them come to visit three years in a row. The children really enjoyed getting to pet and play with all the animals, but the six-week-old bunnies were definitely the most loved! I must say, I was incredibly impressed by how well some of our littlest ones caught and carefully held the chickens and rabbits!

October at Marlowe

What a great month! I can't believe how much everyone has grown just since August!!
 Can you find our class pets? 
We have a fish, a frog, and a snail to take care of and love. Thank you Wills and Walker!

Izzy and Bear went to the beach and caught all kinds of ocean creatures! 
Their mom brought hermit crabs and blue crabs for us to see.
We've had lots of fun with pumpkins. First with painting jack-o-lanterns...
and then decorating tasty pumpkin muffins. The stems are made from okra -- delicious!!

September at Marlowe

We're off to a great start -- we have had so much fun this month! We had a secret chef, several mystery readers, and a REAL airline pilot come to visit our class!

We have been creating beautiful art projects and working with all the fun materials in our classroom.
We have been perfecting our handwriting and working with maps.

We have also been spelling and learning math. 
Look for our upcoming newsletter to see how many interesting facts your children know about the human body. They may also be able to recite some new poems and teach you a new song or two!
