As we listened to “God Bless America!” we looked at pictures that go along with the lyrics to help the children see various parts of our country and how beautiful it is!
We also learned that America started with just 13 colonies. The children loved seeing how different life was back then as we read a book about life in the colonies.
With the kids that come 3 days/week, we got to learn about the Statue of Liberty! They did a great job putting their individual puzzles together! The older kids even worked on their cutting skills.
Puzzles are always enjoyed by the preschoolers! They are a great teaching tool as well.
Once a week, the children get to take any of the toys off the shelves during centers. This is definitely a day they look forward to and these kids had a great time playing together!
Since the early colonial people did not have cars, many of them rode horses. For music time, we listened to and acted out a pony song. The children LOVED riding around on their “ponies” around our classroom! Imagination and movement are a delightful part of childhood!
Happy kids! : )
