 and made George Washington tricorn hats!






We decorated the room with the 
red, white, and blue hearts!




Tuesday's centers included:
Measuring Abe Lincoln's hat with pennies...



Are the numbers in order? Eagles...


Looking at heavier and lighter...



and American Symbols number work..


Wednesday's morning challenges were:
Patriotic counting by 2's...

Patriotic Counting by 5s...


And spelling American Symbols...

We learned many interesting facts
 about our National Symbol!

Little to Large is an interesting activity increasing the size of a small star...very very good fine motor practice!

More bald eagle projects...a favorite!

We painted our own version of her!

Oh My Goodness!
They turned out so 
BEAUTIFUL!

We learned about our 1st and our 16th President this week!

We also wrote USA a lot.  I mean A LOT!!!
