Educational Activities:

  • Language Arts: If your child is working on his/her writing ability you can have them copy words from a patriotic word bank onto paper.  By creating the words in dots the child will be able to trace.  A few words to add to your word bank include: July, Patriot, Flag, Red, White, Blue, and Freedom.There are also some wonderful books that are centered around 4th of July you can read with your child. A couple I like are:
  • The Fourth of July Story
  • The Story of America’s Birthday
  • Social Studies/History: Revisit the true meaning and history behind the 4th of July. Discuss with your child what they think the word independence means.
