Happy President's Day!!

Today, we celebrated President's Day and  not only learned about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln but American symbols as well.  We did not quite get through all of our books and activities and will probably have to continue tomorrow. We read several books on Abe Lincoln and George Washington.  We were able to look up pictures on-line of Abraham Lincoln's dog Fido, the Lincoln Memorial, George Washington's home, Mt. Vernon,  Abe's home in Springfield and Ford's Theater. We saw pictures of Washington's false teeth and the one student wanted to see John Wilkes Booth, the "mean guy" who killed Abraham.  Several students thought it would be fun to take a field trip to see all these places. Hmmmm....I am not  totally convinced on that idea.  Thanks to Mrs. Sandbothe, Kindergarten teacher at Pence, we had a fabulous lesson on the Statue of Liberty! Here are a few pictures showing our own Mr. and Miss Liberty's.
