History Repeats Itself

Last year I had a student whose enthusiasm for Harriet Tubman was contagious.  She came in with a head scarf and was the toast of the classroom.  This year, Abraham Lincoln was the historical figure who got everyone’s attention, spearheaded by this girl’s obsession for  our 16th president.

She’s holding her favorite Christmas present, and I’m putting it on my list too!

Here are a few shots of some Lincoln activities….George is in there too!

Presidential paragraph writing — everyone had a choice of topic, but Lincoln won by a landslide.

In the center is one student’s Day 100 poster.  100 days as of today!  Just one more thing to get excited about!
