Old-Fashioned School Day

Our homeschool group has an annual "Old-Fashioned School Day". It is held in a one-room school house, and children are encouraged to dress in time-appropriate clothes. The theme for this year was Davy Crockett and beavers and their character traits. The verse was "Let everything be done decently and in order". We learned a song about keeping our rooms clean and everything in its place. (Hope that one sticks.) The children put together a book about beavers and Davy Crockett. A trapper came and talked about trapping and gave more information about beavers. The children then were given a small piece of beaver fur, a frame, thread and needle to sew their fur onto the frame. Lunch was a packed sack lunch eaten on the grounds. There were several planned games the favorite of which was tug-of-war. All had a great time, and if Kendrick's grass stained clothes were any indication of how he enjoyed his day, he had a fantastic time.
