Another Award

Happy 4th of July Everyone!! 

Before for I get to the award I received I want to share a little US Symbols project I did with my kiddos this year.  {I was inspired by Mrs. Jump's class: America Part 1 and then googled the craft to go with it. If it's your bell idea I used please let me know so I can give you credit.} This is the Liberty Bell activity.  We watched a video on the Liberty Bell then we filled in the missing letters or words on out poster.  {My kiddos loved this, they couldn't wait until we did another one.}  Then we made Liberty Bells out of toilet paper tubes, styrofoam cups, pipe cleaners, and Christmas bells. I had googled the correct wording that is on the Bell and copied that for the kiddos to glue on their bell.  Lastly they got to make the crack on the bell.  We also completed one on the Statue of Liberty, American Bald Eagle, and the American Flag.  I thought I took pictures of them too but I couldn't find them {boohoo!}.  If you look closely you can see some of our Statue of Liberty Pictures in the first picture.

I was very excited and shocked this morning to find out that I was given another award {whoop, whoop!!}.  How cool is that?  I feel so honored.
