Veteran's Day and Patriotism

Last Monday, we did not have class.  We explained to the class that we had the day off to show respect for our veterans, the people who have defended our country.  Our students were so impressive with their knowledge of the great United States! 

We learned interesting facts about the United States flag, how to sing our national anthem, how to salute the flag, and how to say the pledge appropriately.  Our students came up with all of these ideas for patriotism!!


We also put together a care package to send to a veteran to show our thanks for all he and his family have sacrificed.

We also had an interesting idea for our Halloween directions.  I explained to our class that we can EAT pumpkins.  We decided to make some cinnamon sugar pumpkin seeds. The students worked hard scooping seeds! 
Thanks, guys for doing the heavy lifting!  Trip and Byron did the oven work for us. 

We certainly had a fun-filled week.  We are looking forward to our study this week: Thanksgiving history.  We have a Thanksgiving lunch planned with our pals on Thursday.  We also will be having an Iron Bowl Party on Friday afternoon.  Please wear your team's colors (even if it isn't Alabama or Auburn!)  We will be making predictions and studying probability during the party. 

I hope everyone has a great start to their week!!
