Presidents' Day

This first grade friend is a wonderful model for fluent reading and having a positive attitude toward books! 

Our friend brought in 5 nonfiction books to share with her classmates.  Realizing it would be difficult to choose one book to read, she wisely suggested the students vote on a book for her to read.  The first vote yielded a tie between Presidents Lincoln and Obama so the children voted again, and President Lincoln won.   While reading, she included personal comments and reactions to the text, and summarized the rest of the book for her friends.

We look forward to learning more about our American Heritage from our very special first grade friend.
