Always just one more thing...
Do you ever feel like you are almost caught up, only to realize that there is now yet ANOTHER "thing" that is required/needed/due or all of the above? This seems to be the story of my life these days and is the reason that it has been more than a week since my last post!! Please tell me that I am not alone!!!!!! I have had a few moments of relief these last few days...enjoying some Fall fun with my favorite 7 year old!! :)
Among all the craziness, we have managed to have some fun - all surrounding Veteran's Day. Thanks again Kim Adsit for being the supplier of our fun!! Hooray for Veteran's Day!! We did so many things out of this unit over the past 2 weeks and of course I didn't take a picture of half of it...yet.
One of the first things we did was Label a Hero! The kiddos labeled a soldier of their own as I labeled mine.
We also created a brace map for the parts of the flag. As we discussed the flag and added it's different parts to our map, the children created one of their own.
The next day the kids recreated the brace map again, this time using the pieces from Kim's unit - this being one of the things I did not take a picture of. They turned out so cute too!! I will try and remember to snap a couple on Monday. The other things we did that I didn't take any pictures of are an adorable soldier and Veteran's Day book and an Ordinal Numbers activity that really helped my kids grasp that concept even better! Oh, we also did the All About Number 11 activity today! See, so much I can't remember it all!! If you missed out this year - go buy it now so you will have it for next year!!! You will not regret it!!
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!! 1 more week until our Thanksgiving Break!! Yippee!!! Next week brings A Thanksgiving Feast and butter making!!!! :)
