Project Russia

 
So the Monkey's pre-K class is doing an "Around the World" unit. (Partly inspired, I'm sure, by the fact that the various teaching asst's hail from Hamburg, Britain, Cairo, and Moscow... I♥NY....♫♫).  In any case, her teacher invited any parents who would like to come in and do a project with the kiddies based on whatever country of interest.  So, Russia it was, and I spoke about some Russia "Fun Facts" (complete with pictures), and then had them make paper Matryoshka dolls while listening to some Russian kiddie music.  The Monkey was just giddy over this whole thing, and I've gotta say, the kids impressed me both with their questions and comments about Russia, and their artistic/crafts skills!  I really expected the teachers would be doing more of the crafts, but nooooo.  Very cool and fun!  Even cooler that the inexplicable 101 fever I was sporting the night before was gone by morning.
