For letter U week I decided to put our main focus on the good ol' U.S.A.! I've only really done that theme over 4th of July week, so I thought what the heck! We always talk about how we need to respect the flag (when we say the pledge) and how we need to be proud to live in America. I understand they can't fully comprehend country/state/city, but why not start talking about it now??
Here is how we started the week:
|Stringing red/white/blue beads and squares (I used these stiff crafting squares because I was low on beads).|
|Maps! We talked about how we live in America, then inside America are states and we live in Arizona and inside Arizona there are lots and lots of cities, and the city we all live in. A concept I know they won't fully understand, but a start. :)|
|We cut the maps up into different shapes and glued them onto mat board. After that, I shellacked it with school glue.|
