Celebrating Summer

The Fourth of July is just a few days away my family is excited to spend the day together grilling, playing yard games, swimming, and watching fireworks. The Fourth of July is about more than just fireworks and family time it is a day we celebrate freedom.
To help get in the spirit of the day and share our patriotic pride I have found a few resources that I think are great for explaining the history behind our celebrations.
The first is a fun School House Rock video, that summarizes the history in a fun song and cartoon.
The second is from Scholastic News and is full of really great reading articles on the Constitution, the heroes of the Constitution, has activities students can interact with, and background information.  Even just a few minutes exploring this site will give your students a better understanding and appreciation of Independence Day.
Happy 4th of July
Happy 4th of July
Thank you to everyone who is continuing to read and log their minutes on Scholastic, keep going, keep going, keep going, we are making progress on helping break the world record.

Please add Pinewood Playground Party to your calendar for Wed. July 15, 2015 at 6:30 pm.  I will be sharing a Popsicle with any student who tells me something they have been reading this summer.  It will be a chance for students to see friends play on the playground, and hopefully get a couple of games of ga ga ball or soccer in.  Also if anyone is having trouble accessing Scholastic or any of the online resources we will have devices and staff available to help.
