Hurrah for the RED, WHITE, and BLUE!

We celebrated Presidents this month by learning about Abe and George. We made tri-hats to celebrate that George was a great military man and we made penny poems to celebrate Abe and his contributions to our country. We are proud to be Americans!

We learned the difference between a revolutionary war and a civil war. We learned all the presidents on our coins. We read many books celebrating our country. We know that presidents are elected for four years and live in the White House in Washington DC, our country’s capital .

We learned a song about Abe Lincoln, he came out of the wilderness from the prairie. George was from the great state of Virginia. Today our flag has 50 stars for 50 states, for George that was 13 stars and for Abe it was 34 stars and states.

In addition to the pledge we sang “America The Beautiful” every day this week. We prayed for our military and are thankful that God has blessed us and the United States of America!
