First Weeks of School

I am unbelievably delighted by our incredible group of children this year! 
School started on Monday, and by Tuesday, the class was running as smoothly as I would hope it would by October. Our returning students jumped right in as if they had never left, and our new students fell right into the routine.
As I was sorting out the children's work for the week, I was amazed by some of the papers our pre-K students completed.
Ms. Mary stopped by for her famous music hour and brought Mr. Bob along to help introduce a number of instruments to the children. They showed off a flute, piccolo, guitar, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, and more! We have been learning the lyrics to some rounds, and they helped us sing the various parts and provided a guitar accompaniment. 
Our fabulous week was finished with a surprise visit from this month's Secret Chef! 
W's mom and big brother helped us create a delicious fruit pizza. 
Have a wonderful Labor Day, and don't forget about school pictures next week!

Down on the Farm

We had a grand time this week down on the Marlowe Farm. We danced, sang, shook cream into butter, planted seeds, wove potholders, enjoyed a guitar sing-a-long, and ended the week by taking home a potted plant and a bag full of fabulous crafts.
We look forward to seeing you all at our Open House in two weeks!
