Today is “Throw Back Thursday” and Saturday is Flag Day. One of the things I love best about classroom and homeschool educators is their love for America and for making every important day worth celebrating with children.
Here’s a bulletin board my second graders helped me decorate for our classroom years ago. I admit the lines were not straight, but it made an impact when you walked into the classroom. The children had a real sense of identity with the flag and with our heritage.
Kerry, at My Homeschool Child, compiled activities, videos, games, food, and books to celebrate Flag Day. Please see her link here: http://howtohomeschoolmychild.com/flag-day-activities-for-kids/.
