We read The Bus for Us by Suzanne Bloom. We worked on retelling the story with a partner. We graphed how we get to school and analyzed the data. We also illustrated the way we wished we could come to school as a story response.
We learned about the Preamble to the Constitution and what it means. The students talked with a partner about what it means and shared our their ideas. We choose what we thought was the 3 most important ideas and wrote about them. We also illustrated what the different phrases meant. We learned about the American flag and what the colors mean. Then we discussed the importance of the Pledge and how to appropriately say it to show we are proud of our country.
