Feb 2013


We celebrate BLACK HISTORY MONTH with a study of the Slavery and Civil Rights time periods. We are enjoying Read Alouds on Famous African Americans and learning the history of slavery and the Civil Rights Movement. The students are so intrigued by the topic of slavery, prejudice and Civil Rights and we have had such rich discussions through this study. Children always restore my faith in humanity, but do so especially during discussions on equity, fairness and kindness. Children inherently have these qualities and it is endearing how simplistic the world's problems seem through the eyes of a child........if only our leaders and adults in the world could rectify our issues so easily as children could!!
