Water days are off to a great start! The kids are loving splashing in the water early in the morning. We will continue to have water day each week until Labor Day. Keep an eye out for fun pictures of your little one and their friends!
You made your BBQ plans, the flags were out and you had patriotic desserts recipes downloaded from Pinterest. We hope everyone had a very special Fourth of July. Patriotism was our theme last Friday. We discussed what is Independence Day and why we celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, 1776. A great craft and fun at-home discussion can center around the meaning of the stars and stripes on our flag. The stripes represent the original 13 Colonies and the stars represent the 50 states of the Union. The colors of the flag are symbolic as well; red symbolizes hardiness and valor, white symbolizes purity and innocence, and blue represents vigilance, perseverance and justice.
Finally, we have a great coloring book of Patriotic American Symbols such as the Statue of Liberty and a bald eagle to download.
We will be closed July 5th in observance of Independence Day, school will resume Tuesday, July 6th.
Happy Independence Day!
Please be sure to have your little one dressed and ready for water day each week so they can begin playing at 9:00 am to avoid the heat.
