Princesses, Super Heros, Cowboys, and Bumblebees

Princesses, Super Heros, Cowboys, and Bumblebees

What do these four things all have in common? 

They each visited Marlowe the last week of school!
Everyone knows that princesses and super heroes need to have a firm grasp of math. 
 A general knowledge of geography also comes in handy when saving the world. 
 Our super kids loved having a Secret Chef help them make a delicious monkey treat!
The last day of school let out early for our little dancers to get ready for their Tap-Ballet recital. We have LOVED having Ms. Jamie visit us twice a week this year. The children have gotten so much out of their dance and sports classes. 
 Have a great summer break, and I look forward to seeing many of you in a few weeks for our fabulously fun summer camps!! :)

Gold-Digging & Tie-Dying

With just days left in the school year, the children have been making the most of their time in the classroom. 
Last week, a miner stopped by the school and shared tales of his gold-digging adventures. 
 A preschooler brought in posters about his trips to Boston and London. 
We also tie-dyed all of our t-shirts for field day. 
We loved wearing our groovy shirts yesterday as we played silly games!
I can't wait to see what fun the rest of the week brings.

May at Marlowe

May has been a very busy month for us so far. We have had two amazing show-and-tells. 
(The caterpillars started to wrap themselves into a cocoon the last day of their visit.)
We have also been lucky enough to have TWO mommies come in to be Secret Chefs. 
One helped us make cake pops.
The other helped us make butterflies stuffed with an assortment of colorful snacks. 
We spent the better part of last week, getting ready for our Mommy and Me breakfast that was on Friday. We made lots of crafts and placed them in a bag as a present for our mommies. The children made a necklace, painted a pot and planted some flower seeds, and decorated a wind chime for their mommies.
Our pre-K students illustrated a picture for each of the poems in our poem recital. 
These pictures were hung on the wall and decorated our room for the special day.
 Our big boys spent the last few minutes before afternoon carpool on Thursday and helped the teachers dust the classroom shelves so the classroom would be sparklingly clean for our mommies.
In the midst of all of our busyness of the past week, I noticed one child reading to our guinea pig, and a big brother giving his two younger sisters a lesson on "objects that go together". :) 
We loved having our mommies and grandmas come to visit our classroom on Friday!
After breakfast, we recited nine Shel Silverstein poems and sang our multiples.
Then, the children showed their mommies around the classroom.
Have a lovely Mother's Day!
