Our land from sea to shining sea

The value we’ll be studying is self-reliance, and what we can do when we find ourselves in dangerous or just uncomfortable situations.

For safety we’ll learn how to deal with bad situations.

Outside, we’ll do a trust walk.

The songs we’ll be singing are America the Beautiful. Deep in the Heat of Texas, When the Saints Go Marching In, Them Bones, Dixie, and Camptown Races.

For creative dramatics, we’ll practice tactics to keep ourselves safe.

Our art activities are napkin ghosts, paper bag pumpkins, cotton swab skeletons, and cheesecloth ghosts.

For motor development, we’ll work on stamina with racing, jumping jacks, and squat/jumps. For motor planning, we’ll blow cotton balls, play animal walk charades, and pretend we’re a worm.
