Two of our favorite purchases that we made using the profits from the Summer Festival are the three cute animal soccer balls and the pair of soccer nets.  We really enjoy playing soccer and it really helps us learn the value of teamwork and the importance of strategy.





We bought these magnetic writing line strips to use for our writing program.  We have been studying the four letter types (capital, small, tall, descending), punctuation, and letter formation and practice writing words and sentences on the writing lines (base, middle, top).






We also bought a set of world maps to use for our Social Studies lessons.  We studied the seven continents and four oceans of the world and enjoy learning about the food, culture, famous landmarks, language, and capital cities for the 12 countries that we are studying this year (Germany, France, Italy, United Kingdom, Russia, America, Canada, China, Brazil, Japan, India, Australia).
