December at Marlowe

I can't believe the school year is halfway through! We created several fun art projects this month and were able to watch our corn sprout!
A Secret Chef came by for a visit and made marshmallow snowmen with us, and our Mystery Reader shared several new books.
We were lucky enough to have Ms. Mary visit for a morning. 
The children preformed "Sleigh Ride" with a rhythm band and "Jingle Bells" with....
jingle bells!
We sang "I Have A Little Dreidel" while spinning dreidels.
We also danced to The Nutcracker Suite
After what seemed like weeks of rain and ugly weather, we were finally able to enjoy some playtime outside!
Inside the classroom, we kept ourselves very busy working.
We loved having our families visit us for an afternoon session filled with our favorite lessons.
We celebrated the end of the semester by staying in our pajamas all day!
The children helped Ms. Roopal create a beautiful Rangoli as part of a belated Diwali presentation.
We hope you have a lovely break and look forward to  seeing you on the 7th!

November at Marlowe

We had tons of turkey time fun this month! We made several festive crafts, learned some turkey songs, and Ms. Mary even taught us a turkey dance!
Our Mystery Readers for this month were twin sisters of a current student (and also Marlowe alumni).  We loved having their puppy for show-and-tell. 
The puppy wasn't the only special animal on our campus this month. A petting zoo come to visit last week!! We had a cow, horse, donkey, three goats, a pig, sheep, bunny, and chicken on our playground for the better part of a morning. 
We watched the bulb we started to water last month grow even taller, started to sprout a cob of corn, and loved watching the pods of our new venus fly trap open and close. 
As always, we've been working hard in the classroom. We can't wait to show off our lessons during this month's Afternoon at Marlowe!
