In remembrance of September 11, 2001, I decided to teach the children about "Our Flag". We will be studying the history of the flag, Betsy Ross, the Pledge of Allegiance and its meaning, Francis Scott Key, Uncle Sam, and many patriotic songs to go with this unit. Then we will do some poetry and write about our current feelings concerning 9-11. Don't forget last year these children were in First Grade.

I hope this will inspire some of you to teach a little bit about our country and what has happened.

School, for us, won't open until September 4, 2002.
