Learning About Why We have 4th of July. :)

This morning we talked about why we celebrate the 4th of July. We are celebrating the birthday of the United States, where we live.
Micah and Mason made sure we knew that their birthdays are in July also.....
We did a color sheet and we also colored a flag.
We used the flag while we did the song below. We took turns marching while singing the song.
The children will bring the flags home on Thursday since I am closed on Friday. Ask them to sing the song for you and see if they remember. :)
Way Up in the Sky
(Sung to: "Row, Row, Row Your Boat")
Wave, wave, wave the flag.
Hold it very high.
Watch the colors gently wave.
Way up in the sky!
March, march, march around,
Hold the flag up high.
Wave, wave, wave the flag.
Way up in the sky.
The kids had a blast marching around!

Monday - August 29

We spend the lst 2 weeks doing some testing. I wanted to review and see what letters, colors, numbers and shapes the children knew plus some other things. The kids are doing awesome I'm excited to say...

Today we spend the morning making 4h of July t-shirts. They turned out awesome...

We're spending that next week or 2 on testing and evaluating. I like to find out every 6 months or so where the kids are with their ABC's, etc. I will give you the results of your child's process when I am done.
We have also been spending every free minute outside, enjoying the cool weather. I'm wondering if we're going to see summer soon!

Abby and Riley will be leaving the end of this week to spend the summer at home with mom and their new baby brother Gavin. We'll see them back in the fall. :)

Our Butterflies :)

Well our butterfly are all grown up and they have ventured out into the world on their own. We let them go on Wednesday and they were anxious to get out and discover the world. We were lucky that they left one at a time so that we could watch them just a little bit longer. Out of 5 caterpillars - 4 turned into butterflies. The last one stayed in his cocoon. I'm going to put that in a small jar and add it to ur science center.

Our New Toy!

Today we got a couple new sand diggers. I heard about them from another child care provider and Marie was nice enough to run out to Woodbury to get me a couple. I did put one together, and the other one I'll put together after naptime...
I wish I could buy this stuff already out together. :)
The kids did enjoy it though....

Over the week-end, we had 2 more butterflied emerge from their cocoon. We have one still waiting. I know the kids will be excited. We will let them go either today or tomorrow.
