Since beginning the blog, I've been able to connect with other early childhood educators/bloggers from around the world. I've been sharing with my preschool class about some of the locations around the world, with which I've been able to connect and wanted to make it even more real for my kiddos. I signed up and in a short time was notified by Lesley that we had been chosen. How exciting to find out we had been chosen and we eagerly waited for our package to arrive.
|I wanted to children to get a visual of where our package had|
come from, so I put arrows in the general vicinity for them to see.
|Lesley and her children sent a lovely photo of the school, the|
class, and some general information about them and where they live.
|The children enjoyed looking at a photo of the children that|
sent our goodies to us.
|We discussed how each state has their own flag and each friend|
enjoyed waving the Maryland state flag.
|We discussed that the president of the United States lives|
in Washington DC, near our Takoma Park friends and
spent some time looking at a postcard of all the presidents.
|We learned about the two week long Cherry Blossom Festival in|
DC and read a book about it along with viewing the beautiful
cherry blossom images.
