This is a special day....it is the feast of St. Francis of Assisi!
Since he is our patron saint of our school year (along w/St. Elizabeth Ann Seton), we are really going to really do it up today :)
I printed out these coloring pages
We've also been learning about birds, fish and mammals during science the last few weeks. We do have a little field trip at the end of the week to the...pet store! haaa! Cheap and really fun-the kids are esctatic about going there and the zoo....I figured it is a whole lot cheaper and closer so...why not!?!?
Since it is feast day, we are going to do a few crafts today using all those toliet paper rolls that I've been saving:
The Bald Eagle
Another Octopus craft
And of course we will celebrate w/a cake topped w/ icing and little animals-the kids always look forward to making AND decorating AND eating the yummy cake!
Best go. Lots to do today! :)
St. Francis, Pleas Pray for us!
