Theme – presidents

Talked more about George Washington today.  We talked about what money he is on and looked at pictures of him from the internet.  We talked about his hair being a wig and looked at what king of hat he wore.  I read them a short story about when he was a young boy and chopped down the cherry tree and he was honest and told the truth about what he had done.  During small group/center time students got to make their own three cornered hat like George Washington wore.  We had a tornado drill during the middle of this but students were very orderly and they promptly stopped what they were doing to line up.  After lunch we read a book about shapes.  After rest time we colored a picture of George Washington.
