We made cute Cupcake Valentine bags to collect goodies and cards.
Because of a fog delay - turned fog day off the day before Thanksgiving, we had a make up day on Friday. Upon entering the room one little boy said, "We aren't supposed to be here today." Another boy responded, "Why? Is it Saturday?" I assured them that yes, we were supposed to be at school. :-) It did seem funny to be at school the day after a party day, but we made the most of our make up day by learning about two very important presidents. We discussed the ways to research information in order to learn more about a topic. I read the following books, and we made a chart with the facts that we learned about Abraham Lincoln. Using the facts we listed on our chart, the Kinders wrote "reports" about our 16th president.
|The kids wrote their "report" onto a page (freebie here) that was then taped to their stove pipe hats.|
|We learned a lot of facts about Abraham Lincoln - one being that he loved to read. These Kinders share Abe's love of books!|
After discussing our Founding Father, the Kinders made these cute George Washingtons.
