Wow! What an amazing way to honor September 11th! We spent this week talking about what America means to us and discussed what they knew about September 11, 2001. I was surprised how much this group of 3rd graders knew. After talking about the tragedy, we talked about how America has survived and moved forward. I was so proud having this discussion with my kiddos yesterday. Everyday they are reminded about war and separation when they watch their awesome parents put on that uniform and go off to work. Today, during our moment of silence, there was not a sound to be heard in our room. They stood proudly and then when "God Bless the USA" played they sang so loudly. Brought tears to my eyes. Wow!! Thank you to all the parents who came out and walked with us today. You made this day special for your child.
