Constitution Day & 9/11

Hey guys, I know, I know, I've been missing in blog world lately!! 

Anywho, here's a peek at what we've been doing!

This week we learned about September 11th, and Constitution Day. Thankfully, several great bloggers offered free learning items on 9/11, and I was surprised at how well my kiddos paid attention.

We read the book Fireboat, by Maira Kalman.


We discussed the Twin Towers, and they sat in silence as I read the book, 
and as we looked at pictures of that day. 

Most of them chose to draw a picture of the twin towers to commemorate that day. 


For Constitution Day, we read the book We the Kids by David Catrow.


We talked about how the Constitution was like a set of rules to keep everyone safe, and to make sure that everyone was happy! So, we decided to create our own class constitution, and then we all signed it.


We also made sure that we put our school rules, and some of the 7 habits of happy kids in there as well!!
I saw the original idea on Pinterest.

Talk to you later!
