And now we're going to take a short break for a little mommy bragging. This is Maddie. She's 12 going on 25. This pic is from Valentine's Day and her on her way to her very first dance. Sigh.... where does the time go? And... I've got to throw in a video of her doing her floor routine at her gymnastics competition this past weekend. She totally rocks that floor! I love watching her compete but I get sooooo nervous.
In the classroom we've been learning about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Here's a chart we did to put facts under the president that they pertained to.
Using what we learned about each president, students were able to write about Washington or Lincoln. Look at this sweetie's writing.
"Abraham Lincoln is the first president that has a beard." She is definitely using her invented spelling which I love to see students do because I know they've been stretching those words out like I've been teaching them to do. My assistant and I absolutely adored this little drawing.
