This week Room 5 had a fully saturated America-themed curriculum! We used red, white, and blue colors in our art, in our building and color matching, even in our special snack!
We read “The Scrambled States of America” by Laurie Keller and discussed the many names for where we live, and the states where we may have friends and family members. Our youngsters’ geography lesson was accompanied by acknowledging what Memorial Day is really all about. We talked about the soldiers, the pilots, all the Armed Forces which serve and protect America- some of whom are also our Mommies, Daddies, Uncles, Aunts, Grandpas, etc. As we enjoy our long weekend, it’s good for our youngest friends to begin to understand why we have these important holidays- to celebrate and remember our fallen soldiers!
For a healthy, patriotic treat we enjoyed red ripe strawberries, fluffy white cream cheese, and fresh juicy blueberries. Red, white, and blue!
The leftovers were lovingly fed to our bunny rabbit, Mopsy. Happy Memorial Day, Mopsy!
We pray everyone has a safe and happy weekend.
God bless America!!!
