We had so much fun learning all about Abraham Lincoln! We read many different biographies about his life. We also looked at primary documents such as photos, paintings, a five dollar bill, a penny, etc. We wrote our noticings and wonderings when looking at the primary documents- WOW! They had great questions like, "Why did you always wear a hat? Why did you grow up in a log cabin? Why was a statue made to look like you? Why did you want to have a war? Why are you so freakishly big?" WOW WOW WOW is all I can say! So much great thinking happening! They even got to see how they measured up to a life size drawing of Abraham Lincoln. (Thank you to Emma's mommy and daddy for making this for us!)
I love being a teacher! This is my 6th year, and I love to watch these amazing kiddos grow right in front of my eyes. I am privileged to provide them with hands on learning experiences that will help them love learning. Have fun taking a peek into our classroom!
