Our theme for this month's co-op was Veterans Day. We had a speaker to come and talk to the children who had served in the Army for many years. He had a lot of interesting information to share with them and all of the children enjoyed hearing him speak. Also, each child who was interested gave a presentation on something patriotic. Some of the children sang songs, one young lady wrote a poem, and several gave talks on someone who had been in a war. Chelsea gave her presentation on my dad who served in the Vietnam war. She showed some pictures and gave a 5 min talk on information she had learned about the war. While the older children were busy with the speaker, myself and two other ladies had the younger children (under 1st grade.) We made a red white and blue windsock, watched a video on Ben Franklin, and read a book about the United States. We filled in the rest of the time with outdoor play. As usual we all had a great time at our monthly Cooperative Learning Day.
