Celebrate Presidents Day

Monday, February 17 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Open Full Day in Honor of Presidents Day

Celebrate America’s past presidents at Pretend City for President’s Day! Enjoy a little patriotic adventure through the city while learning all about the role of the President!

Purpose Behind the Play: Concept development, physical development, number concepts through grouping, sorting, and arranging, and social studies.

· Smart Art (in the Art Studio): President’s Day Art > Learn about our nation’s symbols by using them as inspiration for various art projects. From coin rubbings to fingerprint flags your little citizen is sure to show their artistic pride!

· Holiday History (11:00 am): The Little President, A Presidential Primer > Little learners will learn some major facts about our nation’s Presidential history with this storybook. Following this story, we’ll practice sorting and arranging items that are red, white, and blue.

· Gross Motor Activity (3:00 pm): Coin Toss > Who says “throwing money away” isn’t beneficial? Today we will take the time to recognize the Presidential faces imprinted on coins before playing a tossing game to practice our gross motor and fundamental movement skills. Grown-up Tip: Give your child a chance to practice their voting skills at home by providing them 2 choices of what to wear for the day, have for a school snack, or what to eat for dinner. The key to this is to only provide them a choice between 2 or 3 different options. Children feel empowered when they are given a choice even if you are the one who determines what items they are choosing between.
