The children are very excited to talk to you about the design of their home country's flag. They have a special homework project that I hope they will share with you today. We will be doing a painting project next week with their home country flag, and we will also discuss other flags. In case you find them useful, here are some websites with information about flags around the world.
The CIA world factbook flag index gives a really brief summary of the symbolism of each flag's colors.
There are many sites that provide flag coloring pages, with just the black outlines of country flags. This one gives you a small, med, large choice which might be handy:
Also, please know that we are in the process of organizing a field trip for our class related to our unit on Communities. It looks like the field trip will be either October 11th or October 25th. As soon as I have a definite date, I will send home the permission form and plea for parent volunteers to help chaperone.
Thank you! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
