Our Country!

Last week was spent talking about "Our Country".  I will make no apologies for being a "Born in the USA; Pledge of Allegiance Saying; Star Spangle Banner Singing; Red, White and Blue Wearing; Flag Flying; Bible CarryingAll American Girl"!  So with that being said . . . let's talk about MY country!

No week would be complete without talking about a couple of my favorite presidents.  Here our a couple of our George Washingtons -
and here are a couple of good 'ole Honest Abraham Lincolns!

No "Our Country" week would be complete without making an American flag.  I think our class did a wonderful job with their flags.

There is a little special surprise about the stars that I wanted to share with you.  Our letter of the week was "U" so we used some very small cocktail umbrellas to paint on our flags!

In honor of "U" week we spent our "Fabulous Fun Friday" doing unusual things.  First we painted an umbrella with unusual objects - no paint brushes were allowed!

Everyone had so much and the end results were very unusual!

This week cooking activity turned out to be very unusual to say the least!  We made ugly cookies!  Everyone  added several different colors of food coloring to their vanilla icing . . .
and stirred!
And stirred!

Finally we spread our ugly icing onto our cookies
and enjoyed!

For our weekly science experiment we headed outside.  We are having some unusually warm weather right now, so we just couldn't stay inside!  We did a fun science experiment with baking soda, vinegar and a plastic bag!  Put the baking soda into a bag  -
 Add a little vinegar -
 AND then WATCH!
POP goes the bag!

I've got a riddle for you.  Do you know how to tell if it was a good day at school?  Look at the teacher, if she smells like vinegar and has paint and baking soda ALL OVER HER, it was a good day!

Thanks for visiting with us.  I hope you got a few good ideas to do with your class and I hope you come back again to check in on us!
