The children had a busy morning with back-to-back specials first thing this morning! The children went to Wellness first, then to music, before recess and lunch.
In the afternoon, we listened to the gorgeous book Someone Builds the Dream, by Lisa Wheeler and beautifully illustrated by Loren Long. This book celebrates the team of people who work together to build and create bridges, amusement parks, wind farms and books. It is a beautiful book to look at that shows the different types of work that are necessary to complete a project.
We learned about Harriet Tubman today as well. We read a beautiful book called Before She was Harriet, by Lesa Cline-Ransome, that recounts her life from an old woman, back to Araminta from Maryland. We talked about how Harriet Tubman did so many amazing things that helped so many people. She was a true superhero. Ask me to tell you some of Harriet's other names and things she did in her life. This book got applause when I finished, and a couple children wanted me to find a copy to put on our blog, so here it is.
Have a nice evening!
