I hope you and your family had a wonderful 4th of July!  Thank you to those who participated in the 4th of July parade representing LCCC.  It was wonderful to see the support that we had.  

Our theme this week is America the Beautiful where we talked about what we are doing for the 4th of July and we talked about the holiday itself.  The children were asked to write in their journals about what their plans are and what the holiday is.  They said they would be seeing fireworks or spending time with their families.  Some of the children stated that the holiday is about Independence and that we are a free country.  We talked about how the Declaration of Independence was signed and some of the children said that they learned about that in school.    

We made USA necklaces, they drew a picture of Statue of Liberty using a picture as a reference, we did a fireworks art project where the children painted.  They mixed red, white, and blue paint to see what color it makes.  

We went to Tri-City Park and the children played on the playground, played on the big field with our field toys, rolled down the hill, and we finished off the day by going for a walk.  It was a fun day and took many water breaks so that the children can stay cool throughout the day.  We went to the art museum where the children got to see different art works that have been around for many years.  They loved seeing some of the paintings and they wanted to do their own art project.  They asked many questions and we tried to answer them the best that we could.   One of the children told the others that we cannot touch anything there because the alarm would go off!  They were pretty good about it because we had already went over the rules prior to going to the art museum.  I hope they had fun because its one of the most popular places among the school agers.
