In preparation for the big day, many of our children worked with our vertebrate puzzles and learned and labeled their parts.
(Left picture is of a young three-year-old, and the right is labeling by a four-year-old).
And, our older children received a lesson on parts of speech (article, adjective, noun) using the farm.
This month, one of our science experiments was growing corn stalks from indian corn. I was delighted by how well it turned out. Our pumpkin plants also ended up sprouting many seedlings.
We made scarecrows, "Trees of Thanks", turkeys, and several yummy treats.
Ms. Mary brought fun instruments for us to play and taught us some turkey tunes.
We received lots of lessons and spent our mornings working hard!
As a side note, parents are always surprised by how neat the classroom is when the come in. I think they are sometimes skeptical when I tell them that the children clean it themselves. :)
We look forward to seeing you all next week for Daddies and Donuts and Afternoons at Marlowe!
