We started the week talking about the flag. The older kids made a flag while the younger kids practiced pasting red, white and blue paper and sticking start stickers on paper.
Christianna's and Aiden's work since theirs goes home instead of staying on the board.
We talked about how George Washington was the first president and how Barack Obama is president now. For Abraham Lincoln, we made log cabins and colored a portrait of him.
Sean sayings from this week:
""Bracky" is president, he lives in the White House and works in the Oval."
When told that Abraham Lincoln was the president during the civil war: "How a war? He sleeping in his room in oval white house."
When shown a picture of the Lincoln Monument: "I see rusty man!"
I thought I'd just throw in this nap time picture...so peaceful!
