It's February and that means it's time for us to study and celebrate a special time in our history with Famous African-Americans!  We are studying 2 particular time periods (slavery and the Civil Rights Movement).  We are also focusing our Read Alouds this month on stories of courage and heroism from leaders in both of these time periods.
