I want to say GREAT JOB DONE! You've won the Top USA Site Award for the month of
August 2003. I will be removing you from the list until Dec. 2003,
that will give others a chance to win also. At that time I will send you an email
letting you know I've added you back to the list. Have a great 3 months ahead.
We will miss you.
|In remembrance of
September 11, 2001, I decided to teach the children about "Our Flag". The
2,819 people who died in the World Trade Center died as heroes! I
thought a patriotic theme would be a wonderful way to express our feelings
and honor them.
We will be studying the history of the flag, Betsy Ross, the Pledge of Allegiance and its meaning, Francis Scott Key, Uncle Sam, and many patriotic songs to go with this unit. Then we will do some poetry and write about our current feelings concerning 9-11. Don't forget, last year, these children were in First Grade.
I hope this will inspire some of you to teach a little bit about our country and what has happened. Heroes do exist and our children should learn about them, too.
