July 2022 Products

Few things say July more than freedom, independence and watermelons. We celebrate the 4th of July, which is our country's birthday. Kids are excited by the firework displays, flags, parades, food-filled parties and games with family and friends.
Kids love learning about how the US was formed in a small courthouse in Philadelphia. Thirteen American colonies would no longer follow the orders of the British monarch, King George III, and the Declaration of Independence was adopted in 1776. There are such a wide variety of topics that kids can research related to why we celebrate on the 4th of July. Fact booklets are perfect for carrying out research into ways to celebrate independence from Britain.

Use the independence theme to review math and literacy skills. Color by code is a much-loved activity and using the colors of the American flag plus a couple of other colors can result in some stunning work. Color by code worksheets are an engaging way to teach your kids basic number recognition and explore beginning sounds and letters. Also, it will give them the opportunity to work on their fine motor skills. 

Keeping things lighthearted is important even though you are exploring historical aspects of Independence Day. Learning to draw the USA and the Independence Day is a great way to ensure that kids gain a deeper understanding of American history and culture. There are a rich variety of things that kids can learn to draw from the Statue of Liberty and White House to patriotic ribbons and apple pies. Create 4th of July crafts and decorate the classroom with drawings of landmarks and symbols.

Finally, July is National Watermelon Month! Counting the seeds in a watermelon is a fun activity. You can use real fruit or why not some interactive digital Boom cards. 

All products may be found in my store!

Happy July!
