4th of July

This is the first year our school has had classes on the 4th of July. Normally we go on our mid-year break, but our schedule was changed this year. We had fun celebrating in kindergarten. Everyone came dressed in red, white, and blue. Since I am teaching English immersion, I went the easiest route and told them today is a holiday to celebrate America's birthday.

First we read a short book to find out how people celebrate the 4th of July. Then, we made these adorable paper flags with fingerpaint (idea found here) and waved them while listening to the  U.S. national anthem. Finally we had a class parade and shouted, "U.S.A" as we marched around school. What a fun day!
