Kid Wisdom

After reading the November book of the month to kindergarteners we discussed where the wall was located. I asked if anyone knew who the current president was and some answers where You, George Washington and the other answer was God.



After discussing Veterans Day and patriotism, kindergartners used red and blue markers to color inside of their traced hands for Veterans Day. The kids were learning that if they needed white then they had to leave white space on the paper.

After coloring his paper hand, one student remarked: “I’m glad we only used red, white, and blue. I was able to make the British Flag.”


This Week's Funny!!

"How was your day, honey?,"...

asks my husband every day when I get home. Well, after 13 straight school days of dress up, Bobcat Dash, adjusted schedules, assemblies, safety drills, thunderstorms, full moons, solar eclipse, and a polar vortex; this was the only way I could describe it to my husband!!
